Eagles release cartoon featuring crying Eli Manning

Friday October 10th, 2014

The Philadelphia Eagles are ramping up the trash talking before their game against the New York Giants this weekend, first releasing a Bradley Cooper-voiced hype video about the rivalry, and now mocking quarterback Eli Manning with a new cartoon.

The animation shows "Lil' Eli Manning" strutting into Lincoln Financial Field but becoming terrified when the lights go out. He eventually is haunted by the Eagles defense and pleads, "somebody please, fix my underwear! ... Get me out of Philadelphia!"

Philadelphia has dubbed this weekend's game Black Sunday, as the team will be wearing for the first time its black alternate jerseys with black pants.
