The New York Giants’ season of misery is on hold for at least one week. A stunning 12-9 overtime victory against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at Metlife Stadium finally gave New York its first home win of the season in dramatic fashion. Rookie kicker Aldrick Rosas nailed the game-winning field goal after a circus catch by wide receiver Roger Lewis put the Giants at the goal line on a huge fourth down gamble.

(AP Photo)Helmet catches have earned a special place in football fans’ hearts since David Tyree’s Super Bowl catch for the Giants in 2007. It’s not the most efficient way of catching the football, but when it works out, the catch is almost always a spectacular one.
Caelon Harden’s ejection against SMU is the latest example of targeting penalties being called incorrectly. At this point the college football world can agree on at least two things:This is a story about the latter of those items. We’ve seen a lot of bad targeting calls this season, but the ejection of Memphis’ Caelon Harden is easily the most egregious of the year. Harden was on the return unit when he had a chance to lay a block on SMU kicker Josh Williams.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
