This is not a drill

The GIST: The Giants scored their second straight win yesterday, running right past the Philadelphia Eagles’ sluggish defense.

🏈The G-men are back: We’re over halfway through the season and QB Daniel Jones is finally settling in. He kicked off the game with a 34-yard TD run and completed 21 of 28 passes. Here we go, Danny!

  • Running back Wayne Gallman scored the two other TDs, which, along with kicker Graham Gano’s two field goals, sealed the Eagles’ fate with a 27–17 win.

We want it all: Given no teams in the NFC East have a winning record this season, this win bumped the Giants ahead of the Washington Football Team (who lost to the Detroit Lions yesterday) and placed them just behind the Eagles (they both have three wins, but the Eagles tied a game in Week 3). Although winning the division might take a miracle, it is 2020, and stranger things have happened.

⚽️On the pitch: Two Sky Blue FC players — midfielder Jennifer Cudjoe and defender Kaleigh Riehl — were drafted by Racing Louisville FC on Thursday in the NWSL expansion draft. Cudjoe had seven starts in 2020, while Riehl has only appeared in one match since being drafted out of college earlier this year.

  • While losing these two young contributors is not ideal for Sky Blue, Carli Lloyd is still on the squad, and there’s plenty of time to add on fresh talent before NWSL rosters have to be set next spring.
