EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- He took a step back before he leaned forward, and it almost turned disastrous. Maybe in years past it would have. What, with the curse of Bobby Layne and all. Not that Lions punt returner Jamal Agnew cares a lick about whatever sorcery enveloped this franchise during its half-century of (mostly) losing football. He just wanted to catch the ball Monday night at Metlife Stadium.
What the Detroit Lions said after the 24-10 win over the New York Giants on Monday in East Rutherford, N.J.:T.J. Lang: “We’re obviously in the early stages of developing our characteristics as a football team, but not a lot of people believed in us the first two weeks. I think we’ve done a great job blocking out all the noise.
Lions take NFL stage on Monday Night Football against the Giants. Are they ready? The Detroit Lions scored six points the last time they visited the New York Giants. If nothing else, the game against the Giants last December showed the Lions weren’t ready for prime time. Tonight, they get another chance. Against a playoff-caliber team. Beat the Giants – and Odell Beckham Jr. – and the perception in Allen Park starts to change. Actually, it starts to change everywhere else.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
