Week 9: vs Indianapolis Colts

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Eli Manning bounced back from his 0-27 nightmare in Philadelphia (13/23 for 151 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions and six sacks taken for -32 yards) to post a solid effort at Dallas two weeks ago (21/33 for 248 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions with zero sacks taken). During the good game, he hit Larry Donnell for 7/90/0 out of seven targets to put Donnell in the lead spot as a receiver that week. The TDs went to Odell Beckham Jr. (seven for 4/34/2) and Daniel Fells (one for 1/27/1). Rueben Randle moved the sicks with nine targets for 6/74/0 at second place in receiving yards during Week 7. The Giants' passing attack got on track in Dallas despite the 10-point loss. The Colts' pass D was utterly destroyed by Ben Roethlisberger last week, who posted an awe-inspiring 40/49 for 522 yards passing, six TDs and zero interceptions or sacks taken vs. the Colts. Two games ago the Bengals had the opposite experience, with 18/38 for 103 net yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions thrown, and four sacks taken for -23 yards. Indianapolis' secondary has swung between extremes of late. Manning and company should have a decent level of productivity at home in MetLife Stadium on Monday Night Football against the reeling Colts.

Recent Game Summaries

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.
