Players react to stunning defeat, 0-3 start

NFL: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

What were players for the New York Giants saying after Sunday’s gut-wrenching last second loss to the Philadelphia Eagles that dropped their record to 0-3? Let’s go around the locker room and find out.

Eli Manning on the loss ...

“This stings obviously just because we did fight back ... Just the events at the end of th game. To lose that way is tough.”

Orleans Darkwa on being 0-3 ...

“Gotta keep building man, gotta keep building. We’re not giving up on this season. Y’all can, but we’re not. We’re beating ourselves, It’s obvious. Everybody sees it. We shoulda won this game. We didn’t.”

Janoris Jenkins on the 19-yard completion to Alshon Jeffery that set up the game-winning field goal. Jenkins and Eli Apple collided, allowing Jeffery to get out of bounds with one second left ...

“We knew it was coming, I knew it was coming, but I was trying to break before the receiver broke. We were playing outside man and basically he got outside and I just tried to break. I know Eli saw it, but I tried to break before Eli and I just happened to bump Eli.”

Odell Beckham Jr. on the fourth-quarter clothesline he took from Philadelphia’s Malcolm Jenkins ...

“He made a smart play. I’m running down the field, I’m going to make a play and so he stops that. It’s football. He made a play to stop me from making a play.

“Nothing dirty to me. It doesn’t really matter.”

Justin Pugh on the offense ...

“We woke up in the fourth quarter but if we would have done that the whole game we wouldn’t have been in that situation.”

Linebacker Devon Kennard pinned the blame for the loss on the defense, which couldn’t hold two fourth-quarter leads ...

“We’ve gotta take responsibility defensively and say this one’s on us. I feel like the offense did enough to put us in position to win and if we were playing how I know we’re capable of playing we would have won this game. It’s definitely on us.

“It’s a game we should have closed out. We didn’t. We didn’t make plays and we didn’t do the things that we needed to do.”

Brad Wing on his 28-yard punt in the final seconds that helped set up the Eagles’ game-winning score ...

“Just normal punt, and I just didn’t do my job,. They called it to the left, so it’s supposed to be around the left numbers, and I didn’t get it done.”
