I still can’t believe that just happened.
I still can’t believe Jake Elliott, a rookie kicker who got waived during final cuts just a few weeks ago, hit a 61-yard game-winning field to allow the Eagles to beat the New York Giants.
A 61-YARD GAME-WINNING FIELD GOAL!
TO ALLOW THE EAGLES TO BEAT THE NEW YORK GIANTS!
What. a. KICK.
Let’s relive the moment in all of its glory.

That was a game the Eagles easily could have lost after allowing 24 points in the fourth quarter. The Eagles could’ve dropped to 2-1 and we all would’ve been talking about how everyone needs to be fired.
Not today. A rookie kicker saved the day.
Jake Elliott should never have to buy a beer in Philly again.
