Giants, Eagles step up security for Sunday’s games after Paris attacks
The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants warned their fans that they can expect extra security for today's respective game at Lincoln Financial Field and MetLife Stadium.
The Eagles in a message to their fans wrote can expect "increased security and law enforcement presence both inside and outside the stadium," and said they will be strictly enforcing the stadium's clear bag policy. The Dolphins and Eagles kick off at 1 p.m.
"We stand in solidarity with the people of France in condemning the deadly terrorist attacks and mourning the loss of innocent lives," the team wrote, adding that there will be a moment of silence prior to the singing of the national anthem to mourn the 129 people who died in Friday's attacks.
The Giants are also planning to increase security at MetLife Stadium for their 4:15 p.m. game against the undefeated New England Patriots, as are all NFL teams today.
"Although there are no credible threats at this time, we have increased the number of troopers working this week's game. We are also learning more about the tactics used in the Paris attacks and are using that information to make our plans better," wrote MetLife Stadium on their website.
Lincoln Financial Field was also lit up in red, white and blue last night in recognition of current and retired members of the military and in solidarity with the people of France.
The Eagles also plan to honor the military with several special events during the game.
