The Corps of Cadets from the United States Military Academy at West Point marches on to the field before the 119th Army-Navy game, Dec 8, 2018, in Philadelphia.

There were reminders all around the Linc, home of the Super Bowl champion Eagles, that this was no ordinary game. The first quarter was barely underway when Army scored the first touchdown of the game, prompting a thumb's up and fist pumps from the president, who sat on the 50 yard line. Army didn't turn the ball over once, while Navy turned it over four times.

Before the game, parachute jumpers floated onto the field - the Army ones displaying the American and service flags and the Navy ones waving banners that said "Forged by the Sea" and "Fear the Goat" - a reference to the Navy's mascot. The Navy "Leap Frogs" parachute team earned a roar from the crowd with each safe landing on the field. The Army prisoners spelled out "3-PEAT on the back of their uniforms". Abey finished 0-of-5 passing with two interceptions and ended up with no rushing yards.
