NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart on the L.A. market: We remain confident that the city of Los Angeles can support in a very strong way two franchises, and we’re committed to making that happen as we work toward the opening of the new stadium.
Zimmer on Bradford: Sam is OK. He might play one game from now, he might play six weeks from now. Either way, he’s fine.
Giants coach Ben McAdoo on Eli Manning’s delay of game penalty in the third quarter of Monday’s 24-10 loss to the Lions: Sloppy quarterback play. The quarterback and center need be on the same page there. We’ve got to get the ball snapped. We have a veteran quarterback who’s played a lot of football. I expect us to get the ball snapped.
With his team trailing by two touchdowns and facing a third-and-6, Manning takes a huge hit, but he manages to complete a 13-yard pass to Sterling Shepard, prolonging New York’s drive.
Touchdown, Lions. Detroit’s Jamal Agnew returns the ensuing punt 88 yards for a score. Despite multiple opportunities, the Giants fail to bring down Agnew and the Lions now lead 24-10.
Marshall has a chance to move the Giants to midfield when Manning finds him open down the sideline, but he drops the ball, setting up a third down, which New York can’t convert, and the Giants will punt.
Detroit draws an offside penalty but still can’t convert on third down. The Giants get the ball on their 19 with a chance to tie the score.
Samaje Perine, RB, Washington Redskins: Perine suffered a hand/wrist injury in the fourth quarter, as it appeared he took a direct hit from a defender’s helmet. The club announced Perine was questionable to return. Perine returned to the sideline with his hand wrapped, but did not return to the game. On Monday, ESPN’s John Keim reported that Perine has a bruised hand, and is considered day to day.
