Eagles cornerback Nolan Carroll returns an interception for a touchdown in the second quarter against the Giants.

PHILADELPHIA — DeMarco Murray ran for 109 yards and a touchdown and cornerback Nolan Carroll returned one of Eli Manning's two interceptions for a score as the Eagles beat the Giants 27-7 Monday night.

Sam Bradford threw for 280 yards and a 32-yard touchdown to former Florida and Clearwater Central Catholic standout Riley Cooper. But Bradford also had three interceptions to keep New York in the game.

Neither team looked sharp in front of a prime-time audience. They combined for seven turnovers and 21 penalties.

The Giants gave the Eagles first downs on a roughing-the-passer penalty and a running-into-the-kicker penalty to keep both of their TD drives going.

Manziel could face league punishment

BEREA, Ohio — Johnny Manziel's in-car argument with his girlfriend could lead to punishment from the NFL.

Browns coach Mike Pettine said the league plans to investigate the high-profile backup quarterback's domestic dispute last week. The altercation raised new concerns about Manziel, a first-round draft pick in 2014, and his future with the club.

Manziel was questioned by police in Avon, Ohio, after his girlfriend claimed he was physical with her when the two had a heated disagreement while driving on an Interstate highway. Colleen Crowley can be heard telling police on a dash-cam video released Monday that Manziel "hit me a couple times" and "I'm in fear for my life."

Manziel was not arrested and Crowley did not press charges. The couple was allowed to leave the scene together and Friday both went on social media to downplay their disagreement.

League spokesman Brian McCarthy said Manziel's situation will be reviewed.

According to the police report, Crowley was intoxicated and made inconsistent statements about Manziel's actions. The couple said they had been drinking alcohol earlier in the day. An officer determined Manziel — who went through a rehab program this year — was not intoxicated and "had consumed only two alcoholic drinks several hours prior."

Network sorry for nude images: NFL Network apologized to Bengals players who were shown naked in the locker room during a postgame interview Sunday in Buffalo. Network executive vice president Alex Riethmiller said the crew didn't follow usual procedures that would have prevented it. Left tackle Andrew Whitworth, the team's union representative, was one of those shown. "It's just not right," Whitworth said, adding that an apology alone "won't be good enough."

Heyward fines: Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward has a fine appeal hearing today and said he wants to explain to commissioner Roger Goodell why he is violating league uniform policy. Heyward was fined $5,787 last week for wearing a personal message — two pieces of eye black, with "IRON" on the right cheek and "HEAD" on the left to honor Heyward's late father, Craig "Ironhead" Heyward — then wore it again Sunday in the game against Arizona. Craig Heyward died of a brain tumor in 2006. "In a month when breast cancer is honored I think every type of cancer should be honored as well," Heyward said Monday.

More Steelers: Quarterback Michael Vick has a small tear in his hamstring and is likely to miss Sunday's game at the Chiefs.

Sprain for Mariota: Titans quarterback and No. 2 overall draft pick Marcus Mariota has a sprained left MCL from a hit in Sunday's game against Miami, an MRI exam showed. "From what I've seen of him walking around today, he's moving around fine," coach Ken Whisenhunt said.

Jets: The league suspended receiver Quincy Enunwa for four games without pay for violating personal conduct policy. Enunwa was arrested last year for simple assault on his girlfriend at a New Jersey hotel; charges were later dropped.

Lions: Running back Zach Zenner went on injured reserve with cracked ribs and a partly collapsed lung. He was hurt in Sunday's win against the Bears.

Saints: They signed former Redskins kicker Kai Forbath and released Zach Hocker, who missed two field goals Thursday against Atlanta, dropping him to 9 of 13 on the season.

Seahawks: Coach Pete Carroll said team is lifting the suspension of fullback Derrick Coleman, which was imposed after Coleman was arrested after a car crash.
