Undaunted by the pressure, Eagles rookie placekicker Jake Elliot made a franchise record 61-yard field goal as time expired, giving the Eagles a 27-24 comeback win against the New York Football Giants. With this win, the Eagles improve to 2-1 overall (more importantly, 2-0 in the NFC East). On the other hand, this crushing loss drops the Giants record to 0-3 overall (0-2 in the NFC East & 0-3 in the NFC Conference). Needless to say, Elliot’s leg drove the penultimate nail into the Giants 2017 playoff coffin.
