Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen was caught on camera performing an odd swinging/punch motion in an effort to tackle Chargers receiver Tyrell Williams.
Sorensen wasn’t penalized for the play, but that could just be because the ref didn’t see it.
An argument could be made he was attempting to force a fumble, but he didn’t make much of an effort on the ball. It was also a very extreme motion downwards, that if landed in the right area, could cause some damage.
This could be a play the NFL takes a look at during the week. If so, it wouldn’t be out of the question to see Sorensen get fined.
On the next possession the Eagles punted, and two plays later, the Giants led. Manning hit a tight window on a play-action pass and found Sterling Shepard for what should have simply been a first down, only for third-string safety Chris Maragos to crash in with a terrible angle and miss his tackle. Maragos’ miss knocked Patrick Robinson off Shepard’s trail, which was all the space the second-year receiver needed to put the Giants ahead.
Limited Youth Sergio Romo Jersey A stop and a running game might have been enough for the Giants to seal the win, but they made mental mistakes down the stretch. Eli Apple, who has struggled mightily during his second season, was drawn into a long pass interference penalty against the King of Pass Interference, Torrey Smith, setting up a tying Eagles touchdown. On the ensuing drive, the Giants thought they had a free play and a third-down conversion in the red zone with an Eagles player struggling to get off the field, but John Jerry was whistled for holding the defender down and preventing him from getting off the field, marking the most successful block made by a Giants offensive lineman in 2017.
