One of the unique aspects of NBC’s Sunday Night Football is that players introduce themselves, stating their names and colleges so that it can be aired early in the broadcast.
However, on Sunday night, that led to an awkward moment for the New York Giants’ offensive line, as they allowed a sack right as their introductions were rolling across the bottom of the screen.
As you can see in the funny video below, fans knew exactly who to blame for this first-quarter sack of former Ole Miss QB Eli Manning:

Since it happened just before the right side of the offensive line was introduced, we now know that we can blame RG John Jerry of Ole Miss and Bobby Hart of Florida State for the sack of Manning.
Things would only get worse for the Giants against the Dallas Cowboys, as they struggled mightily on offense in the 19-3 loss. Maybe next week, they can wait until after player introductions to allow their first sack.
