— After the mother of Giants rookie corner Eli Apple criticized Giants co-owner John Mara on Twitter last week, Apple reacted to her posts on Sunday.

“My mom’s very vocal and that topic is very important to her, so I can understand where she was coming from,” Apple said. “But at the same time in my position I just have to do my part and play football and do what I can do.”

Annie Apple, a domestic violence survivor, criticized her son’s boss for his handling, or mishandling, of Giants kicker Josh Brown’s domestic violence against his wife.

In an article for on Sunday, Annie Apple further expressed her disgust.

“The comments made by John Mara, owner of the New York Giants, were insensitive, dismissive and callous,” she wrote. “How are you a so-called champion of domestic violence but lack basic compassion for a victim? Yes, this man signs my son’s checks as I’ve been reminded on Twitter. Mr. Mara owns the New York Giants. He doesn’t own Annie Apple. Wrong is wrong. And Mr. Mara’s comments were unapologetically wrong and hit at a raw place.”

Apple stressed on Sunday he spoke with his employers and assured them he is committed to the team despite his mother’s anger.

“I talked to them, let them know my mom, her reactions like that sometimes are like that, she’s her own person, she’s going to do that, so I’ve just got to do my job,” he said. “I just made sure I talked to everybody, man, just let them know, whoever is concerned.”

Apple returned from a groin injury Sunday to play in his team’s 17-10 win over the Rams in London.

Derrick Rose returned to Knicks practice Saturday after being found not liable in his weeks-long rape trial.

Rose said it felt “like heaven” to be back on the basketball court and said he “just wants to hoop.”

“I got through my little situation, but I’m happy to be focusing on nothing but basketball,” Rose said.

And he has returned ready to get back into his craft.

“I’m very confident, man,’’ he said. “I really believe that’s why I’m here — to hoop. I still have a lot of confidence in my ability.”

Though he missed basketball, the only thing he regrets missing during his trial was his son’s birthday.

“Out of all this, the only thing that hurt me was missing my son’s birthday party and birthday,” he said. “Those were the two things I was worried about the most — not being there with my family.”

Rose likely will start in the Knicks’ season opener in Cleveland on Tuesday.

— For the first time since 2014, an NFL game ended in a tie.

When the Cardinals and the Seahawks went to overtime Sunday night tied, 6-6, Arizona’s kicker Chandler Catanzaro only needed a 24-yard field goal to secure the win. He missed when his kick hit off the left upright.

Then Seattle kicker Stephen Hauschka needed to make a 27-yard field goal for the win. He missed with a kick that went wide to the left.

The last time an NFL game ended in a tie was two years ago when the Panthers and the Bengals tied, 37-37.

The two missed field goals came on the same day Colts kicker (and former Patriot) Adam Vinatieri broke the NFL record for consecutive field goals with his 43rd.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Right now, I stink.” — Stephen Gostkowski, after missing an extra point for the second week in a row
