Lovato intentionally and strategically paused on snapping the ball just before the Giants could call timeout in an icing attempt, while also using that time to settle nerves and maintain mental focus.

“We wanted to save it,” Lovato explained. “I didn’t want to snap the ball and he kicks it and then it would get in his head if he missed it. We just had to stay calm. I even got more calm being out there.”

Lovato, in just his first full season with the Eagles, and Elliott, signed off the Bengals’ practice squad after Week 1 to replace the injured Caleb Sturgis, hadn’t even coordinated on attempts longer than 55 yards in practice.
