Did Eli Manning Audible "Trump"?

During yesterday's football game between the New York Giants and the Los Angeles Rams, played in London, NY quarterback Eli Manning calls an audible which sounds like the name of the GOP nominee.  His brother and fellow quarterback Peyton Manning, now retired, was noted for his frequent use of "Omaha" in his audibles.  For the record, Eli denies saying "Trump".

Two observations culled from the links below:

1. Maybe he was telling his offensive line "to build a wall and make the Rams pay for it".

2. To give equal time, Eli needs to call a "Clinton" audible.

Read more at Deadspin, the Daily News, USA Today, The Washington Post and Sports Illustrated.  Some of these include a video (with audio) of the audible, so you can decide for yourself.
