change, how much does it really make sense in one week? It was a challenge, and it still will be.” The Bengals scored on their f Antworten

Breathe a little easier Philadelphia and surrounding areas. The Eagles are back and looking super.Just goes to show you what a little urgency Shareef Miller Jersey , some big plays — and a timely game against the New York Giants can do for the defending Super Bowl champions.Carson Wentz threw a season-high three touchdown passes and the Eagles got an early lift from their defense and special teams in beating the struggling Giants 34-13 on Thursday night, avoiding their first three-game losing streak since the 2016 season.“It’s a big win for us,” said Wentz, who finished 26 of 36 for 278 yards and no interceptions. “NFC East and the conference. It’s huge. Being 3-3 is better than 2-4. This is more like who we are. We can build from this.”The win put the Eagles into a first place tie with Washington (2-2) in the NFC East with Dallas (2-3) a half game back. The Giants are fading fast.Wentz sandwiched touchdowns passes of 13 and 1 yard to Alshon Jeffery around a 10-yarder to tight end Zach Ertz to help the Eagles build a 31-6 lead. They beat the Giants (1-5) for the fourth straight time and seventh in eight games.Corey Clement scored on a 1-yard run and Jake Elliott added field goals of 33 and 30 yards.“This is finally the game where we played like the Philadelphia Eagles,” said Ertz, who was limited to seven passes for 43 yards. “We’re finally the Eagles again.”Rookie halfback Saquon Barkley scored on a 50-yard run and rushed for 130 yards in one of the few bright spots for the Giants’ offense, which was booed repeatedly in losing at home for the third time. Aldrick Rosas had field goals of 33 and 21 yards.This was seen as a must-win game for both teams in the weak and wide-open NFC East, and the Eagles went out and grabbed it.They came into the game having scored seven points in the first quarter and they doubled that against New York.Eli Manning was under pressure all night from the Eagles. They sacked him four times and hit him 13 other times. He finished 24 of 43 for 281 yards.“We want to get after the passer every week,” coach Doug Pederson said. “These games are battles. It all comes down to which team gets after the passer. We hit Eli and put him on the ground. That was big.”It started on the opening series.Kamu Grugier-Hill intercepted Manning’s pass that was tipped by fellow linebacker Jordan Hicks and he returned it to Giants 16. Three plays later, Wentz was forced out of the pocket and found Jeffery after getting all day to throw.A 46-yard run by Barkley set up Rosas’ 33-yarder to cut the gap to 7-3 Germaine Pratt Jersey , but the Eagles took control later in the quarter after DeAndre Carter returned a punt 23 yards to the New York 44. Passes of 17 to Jeffery and 14 to Clement set up Clement’s touchdown run.A spectacular tackle-breaking run by Barkley on a 55-yard screen pass helped cut the lead to 14-6 in the second quarter but Wentz hit a wide-open Nelson Agholer on a third and 3 and connected with Ertz for a 21-6 lead on the next play.Elliott made it 24-6 just before halftime and Philadelphia put the game out of reach with a 75-yard drive that ended with a short Jeffery TD catch.“We didn’t do anything well enough to win tonight,” Giants coach Pat Shurmur said. “Credit Philadelphia. Good football team.”The only thing meaningful after that was Barkley’s touchdown run.“How do I feel about my performance tonight?” Barkley asked rhetorically. “Doesn’t matter to me. We didn’t win.”FAN OF THE GAMEOdell Beckham Jr. headbutted a giant cooling fan during a second-half fit that also included him screaming from the sideline and eventually being calmed by Barkley. Beckham also left for the locker room before the end of the first half, though Shurmur said Beckham was excused early because of cramping.Beckham said his tirade was just a bit of self-motivation.“I was just trying to get myself going,” he said. “I felt like some of those plays where I was getting myself going was some of my best stuff. So I was just trying to get myself fired up. I did that and it helped me.”Thursday’s scene comes a week after Beckham bemoaned the lack of downfield passes from Manning and the team’s subpar energy following a 33-31 loss to Carolina. Beckham had six catches for 44 yards Thursday, and his longest reception was 12 yards.INJURIES: Eagles LT Jason Peters left with a biceps injury. Backup cornerback Sidney Jones left in the first half with a hamstring injury. The Giants had LB Ray Ray Amstrong (concussion), WR Cody Latimer (hamstring) and CB Antonio Hamilton (illness) leave the game.BARKLEY GAINS: Barkley has gained at least 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first six career games. He is one off the NFL rookie record set by Kansas City’s Kareem Hunt. CINCINNATI (AP)Joe Mixon moved into the role of featured running back, carrying more times than in the first two games combined. A.J. Green became a go-to receiver again, with as many catches as in his first two games. The Bengals offense had a very different look in Bill Lazor’s first time calling plays, but ran into a familiar problem in the second half. It couldn’t move the ball when it needed to, setting up a 27-24 overtime loss in Green Bay on Sunday. With that , the Bengals (0-3) fell into a deep hole from which they’ve never recovered in previous seasons. They lost their first three games to start a season 13 other times and never managed as much as a winning record. A loss on Sunday against the 0-3 Browns would render their season a waste already. Lazor thinks things will go more smoothly in his second game as offensive coordinator. The staff is still adjusting to the changes since Ken Zampese was fired as coordinator after an 0-2 start that included no touchdowns from the offense. ”It won’t feel like a normal process yet,” Lazor said. ”Maybe next week will. It will be different in some ways because some of the things won’t have to be brand new for us as a staff. I think the players will be fine.” Lazor was the offensive coordinator in Miami for two years before coming to Cincinnati as the quarterbacks coach. Zampese was fired because the offense never got into a flow and his top players weren’t getting involved as much as in the past. Lazor changed that part right away. Green had 10 catches – matching his total for the first two games combined – in Green Bay. Mixon, a second-round pick, was given the lead role in the running game after Zampese had shared it equally among three running backs without getting a good result. ”I think the guys who have proven before that they can be successful and help you win games, you’ve got to rely on them to do it,” Lazor said. ”A guy like Joe, we all expected he would start to rise to that.” Lazor’s most important job was to get Andy Dalton settled down. The quarterback was under constant pressure the first two games behind an inexperienced offensive line and had five turnovers with no touchdown passes. Dalton was 21 of 27 for 212 yards with a pair of touchdowns, no turnovers and a 124.1 passer rating in Green Bay, a significant improvement. Dalton is adjusting to a different approach from a new coordinator. ”I think that was a challenge for both of us,” Lazor said. ”Just like with the whole offense Renell Wren Jersey , I had to decide with Andy: How much do you change? If you have a list of three things or eight things or however much that maybe you want to change, how much does it really make sense in one week? It was a challenge, and it still will be.” The Bengals scored on their first possession in Green Bay and led 21-7. They managed only one field goal in the second half, harking back to the problems last season when they’d have a fast start and crumble at the end during a 6-9-1 season. ”We obviously played better – we scored a touchdown,” Dalton said. ”But at the end of the game, we’ve got to find a way to put that away.” BURFICT EXEMPTION: LB Vontaze Burfict completed his latest three-game suspension from the NFL for another egregious hit and is expected to start in Cleveland on Sunday. He can practice on Wednesday with a non-roster exemption, and the team must add him to the roster by Thursday at 4 p.m. The Bengals gave Burfict a contract extension while he was serving the suspension for leveling a Chiefs running back during a preseason game. ROTATING TACKLES Andre Smith played 26 snaps at tackle in a new twist for the offensive line. Coach Marvin Lewis said he wanted to give his young tackles some rest on a hot day – temperatures at Lambeau Field were over 90 degrees. Lewis declined to say whether the arrangement would continue. Left tackle Cedric Ogbuehi was in for 49 of 61 snaps. Right tackle Jake Fisher was in for 47 snaps. —
