Doug Pederson has spent much of the past week trying to convince his Eagles team that they can still win without their MVP quarterback. On Sunday he’ll attempt to put that theory into practice. The Eagles will play their first game since Carson Wentz tore his ACL a week ago, replacing him with Nick Foles against the Giants at MetLife Stadium.
At the time it was a shocking loss. Jake Elliott kicked two field goals in the final 51 seconds, including a 61-yarder as time expired, to give the Eagles a 27-24 win over the Giants Sept. 24 and make them the first team since 1994 to lose on game-tying and game-winning field goals so late in the fourth quarter. But looking back, that moment also was a hinge for both teams. While they were so evenly matched during the Week 3 meeting, they followed decidedly different trajectories afterward.
Justin Pugh’s season is over, and his Giants career may be as well. The offensive lineman was placed on injured reserve on Thursday after receiving a second opinion on his back injury from specialist Robert Watkins in Los Angeles. He will not require surgery. Rest and rehabilitation have been prescribed, the Giants said, but he will not be healthy enough to play with just three games left. Pugh, a 2013 first-round pick of the Giants, will be a free agent this offseason.
Spags mentions seven (SEVEN!) members of the coaching and support staff by name here, plus his wife Maria, Ben McAdoo, McAdoo's wife Toni, and John Mara.
Such things are important in leadership and often overlooked. https://t.co/tgS3UojDQS

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".
