Elliott's game-winning kick scores big for charity

Elliott's game-winning kick scores big for charity

PHILADELPHIA (WMC) - Former Memphis Tigers kicker Jake Elliott's 61 yard game-winning field goal for the Eagles to beat the Giants on Sunday earned him NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

Elliott also earned a big pay day for charity.

Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz was caught on camera saying he'd give Elliott his game check if he hit the kick.

That's a $31,764 check.

Elliott said he didn't want the money, so the pair worked out a deal to donate some of the cash to a charity in Elliott's name.
