Giants sticking with Eli Manning on Sunday against the Eagles

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants are sticking with Eli Manning. A day after saying he wasn't sure who would start against the NFC East champion Philadelphia Eagles, interim coach Steve Spagnuolo on Monday left no doubt that the two-time Super Bowl MVP would be his quarterback Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Spagnuolo was not sure whether Manning also would start the final two games, against Arizona and Washington. The Giants (2-11) might want to see what rookie Davis Webb can do; the third-round draft pick has not played this season. "Right now I'm talking about I'm on the week...

Eagles turn to QB Nick Foles after Carson Wentz goes down

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz got the Eagles this far. Now, it's up to Nick Foles to deliver Philadelphia its first Super Bowl title. Wentz has a torn left ACL and will miss the rest of the season and playoffs, forcing the NFC East champions to turn to a familiar backup who once had one of the greatest statistical seasons in NFL history. "The reason we got Nick Foles is for situations like this. I'm excited for Nick," coach Doug Pederson said Monday. "I hate it for Carson Wentz. I hate it for the season that he's been having. But at the same time, it's been the next-man-up mentality and...

ICYMI in NFL Week 13: Gronk's hit, Brady's spat for Patriots

Even as the New England Patriots won a 10th game for the 15th consecutive season to move closer to yet another AFC East title and a No. 1 seed for the playoffs, a late hit to an opponent's head by Rob Gronkowski and a sideline spat involving Tom Brady made things interesting for the defending Super Bowl champs. Not that anyone on the Patriots was willing to say anything revelatory about either episode. Nothing new there, either. Still, as much as coach Bill Belichick will want to ignore it all and move on to the next game, there are some key talking points about the Patriots for the coming...

Giants co-owner John Mara talks about benching Eli Manning

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Co-owner John Mara says there was probably a better way for the New York Giants to handle the benching of two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning after 13 seasons. But he was at a loss to know what it was. Speaking for the first time since coach Ben McAdoo announced Tuesday that Geno Smith would start against Oakland, Mara said Wednesday that he made a couple of mistakes in handling the situation. Not being at the team's headquarters Tuesday when Manning was devastated by the decision topped the list. Mara also said that he miscalculated Manning's reaction, thinking...
