The Giants WR Sterling Shepard - Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins rivalry is getting a little bit heated
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- A skirmish broke out with around three minutes left in the fourth quarter of a tight game Sunday at MetLife Stadium. At the bottom of it all was New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard and Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins.
Eagles and Giants fans might want to get used to that. This is a matchup and rivalry that appears to be just getting started.
Shepard and Jenkins got entangled on a running play and went to the ground together late in the Eagles’ 34-29 victory over the Giants. Their teammates momentarily entered the fray and participated in some extracurricular pushing and shoving.
It wasn’t anything crazy. It all settled moments later because there was a game to be decided. But it wasn’t the first and likely won’t be the last time that the Jenkins-Shepard matchup gets heated.
