From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Manning answered the questions of how he and his offense would bounce back after a devastating loss at Philadelphia. Victor Cruz is gone, but Odell Beckham appears ready for prime time, and Manning should continue to be at least a great matchup play in the NFC East, if not a low QB1 from here on out after his bye this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs ATL (19 / 30 / 200 / 2 / 0 pass, 2 / -3 / 0 rush)

Eli Manning played a solid game on Sunday against the Falcons and was very efficient throwing the ball. Manning was turnover free and sustained long drives when given the opportunity which helped ensure the win. Manning was patient in the pocket and did not force or risk a bad throw when nobody was open down the field. He threw a wide variety of patterns to his receivers and kept Atlanta guessing defensively. Manning was slightly off target on a few deep throws however. Manning was slightly off target on a deep streak pattern to Parker who was wide open down field. Parker managed to secure the pass but tripped over himself as he turned around to catch the ball. Manning hit Randle in the back of the endzone on a high ball but Randle just stepped out of bounds despite being completely open. Fortunately, Manning was able to find Randle again on a comeback route in the endzone and the Giants scored regardless. Manning mis fired again however, as he completely overthrew rookie receiver Beckham who had broken free from the secondary on a go route. Manning looked to hit Beckham again deep but Atlanta defender fouled Beckham and pass interference was called instead. Manning almost found Cruz on a fade route but an excellent break up by the secondary caused it to fall incomplete. Manning looked on fire as the game progressed and found open receivers with accurate balls very often. Manning's second touchdown came on a high pass deep to Beckham. Beckham was wide open and went up to easily snag the football from Manning, who placed it high and away from the defender. Manning did not manage gaudy statistics but still played extremely well and was mistake free for the most part. He was excellent in the pre snap and decisive where he wanted to go with the football.

2014 Week 6 vs PHI (13 / 23 / 151 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 3 / 0 rush)

Eli Manning accomplished very little offensively on Sunday night and failed to lift his teammates during a bad performance. The entire offense functioned poorly and Manning looked helpless in the pocket at times. Manning was under a heavy pass rush often in obvious passing situations and the Giants offensive line did not provide adequate protection. As a result, Manning was forced to rush a lot of his throws which was the cause of many incomplete passes. Manning and the Giants failed to adjust to the Eagles pass rush and gave up many sacks on third down. Manning fumbled the ball in the first quarter due to a blindsided hit as he held onto the ball too long in the pocket but he was fortunate that Justin Pugh managed to recover the ball. Manning had a few nice throws on the run to the outside and hit Fells perfectly for a big third down conversion via a seam route but the drives often fell short of the redzone and the Giants couldn't maintain possession. The pocket collapsed very quickly on Manning throughout the game and he quickly had to throw wobbly balls to his check down options to escape the pressure. Manning had passes batted down and was hit in the pocket as he threw on numerous occasions. Manning did manage to connect with Donnell with a one handed grab over the middle in the redzone but a holding penalty negated the touchdown. Manning almost scored again as he hit Cruz in the hands on a fade route but Cruz got injured on the play and the pass fell incomplete.

2014 Week 7 vs DAL (21 / 33 / 248 / 3 / 0 pass, 1 / 11 / 0 rush)

Manning was wired and decisive early against the Cowboys. He was accurate and making quick decisions. The Giants took a 14-7 lead in the second quarter after Manning threw touchdowns to Odell Beckham on an out route and found Daniel Fells open rolling to his left off play-action. Manning threw in a rare scramble to convert a third-and-long situation, a breakdown by the recently rock-solid Dallas defense. As the second half progressed, Manning and the offense was not able to match scoring drives as Dallas turned hyper-efficient. When the Giants offense was forced into catchup mode, Manning kept it competitive with a touchdown drive with five minutes to play. Odell Beckham was a clear target as Manning looked his direction at the goal line on two occasions, converting the second for the score. Manning played well, but the lack of a running back and a few situational misses led to the divisional road loss against a top opponent.

Giants | Eli Manning has quiet night (Sun Oct 12, 11:02 PM) - New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 13 of his 23 pass attempts for 151 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 6 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was lifted in the final minutes of the fourth quarter in favor backup QB Ryan Nassib.

Our View: Just when his owners thought it was safe to go back in the water. Manning in one fell swoop is back to be the shaky matchup play he was until the bottom fell out last year. Next week's game at Dallas will tell us a lot about where this offense is headed.
