That doesn't mean they won't keep trying, even when they're down by two touchdowns with two minutes to go in the game.
No, this is the time and the place for the New York Football Giants to show some pride and poise and toughness and get off the canvas and make a stand that would change the complexion of this pockmarked season.
Rookie kicker Jake Elliott drilled a 61-yard field goal, yes, that's right, a 61-yard field goal to lift the Eagles 27-24 over the Giants Sunday after almost blowing a big 14 point lead. We hold ourselves to a high standard in the building.
The first two drives showcased the Eagles' offensive line problems, as each saw Wentz get sacked, a short run on second and long and eventually a three-and-out.
Several other players also had their first raised, but no one knelt or Saturday.
But they do not expect the same result that led them to an 0-2 start.
"I always look at myself critically, but it is up to Eli to get the ball snapped", McAdoo said.
"Once we break through this wall", Adams said, "we're gonna get the ball rolling". Manning is in the back nine of his career and needs a real offensive coach that can actually design National Football League level plays to get this offense going. So we'll evaluate the whole thing. Manning is no stranger to regular season success and if it weren't for his two big upsets over Tom Brady in Super Bowls, the Giants would have unquestionably gotten rid of Peyton's younger brother a long time ago. That Trump heard applause for his insistence that kneeling for our anthem is inherently disrespectful absolutely speaks to a strong current of belief across this country, one that should be afforded the same brand of respect for its existence as these players deserve for their belief in the opposite, even if that makes you angry.
In his quest to field a heavy-handed team, coach Ben McAdoo has considered just about everything except locking his players in a meat locker and instructing them to pound slabs of beef.
Dani Ceballos brace leads Real Madrid to unconvincing win at Alaves
This third victory brought Madrid up to fourth in the standings with 11 points, 4 points behind Barcelona's new finish 5 parties. The Portugal star also cut a frustrated figure in the 1-0 defeat to Betis but Zidane insists there is little cause for panic.
None of the Eagles' players have knelt during the anthem this season.
Well said, but what about the original question - is this a must-win game?
But for whatever reason, the Giants' West Coast-style system simply hasn't functioned as effectively with McAdoo juggling more responsibilities.
WHERE TO WATCH: The New York Giants will battle the Philadelphia Eagles at 1:00 pm ET. In 19 games since he became the head coach, that number is zilch. Why not give the Giants something to think about by creating some semblance of uncertainty, right? Paul Perkins, Shane Vereen and Orleans Darkwa have shared the running duties for NY.
This is the Joe Buck-Troy Aikman game, so it's a little disappointing that we didn't get Buck melting down about what a "disgusting act" it was for Beckham to fake tinkle.
The clock is rapidly ticking on the Giants to do so.
2007: They opened with losses in Dallas and at home against the Packers. The Giants are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Philadelphia, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
"I was thinking about it the other day". "I'm confident in what we can do". "They beat us at home, they just for some reason they've had our number". We don't know what's going to happen.
