Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs WAS (25 / 38 / 350 / 1 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Eli Manning's day was filled with plenty yardage but too many turnovers. He started the game out playing clean and efficient as the first drive resulted in a touchdown. It was initially a three and out but a muffed punt gave Eli a chance to capitalize. His accuracy was sharp as he connected with 3 receivers before taking it in for a one yard score. He then followed that up with another touchdown on the next drive connecting with rookie Sterling Shepard. Eli put the ball right on target for a skinny post route over the top of the defender. After these highlights most of Eli's day was bogged down with penalties that stalled drives. He got everyone involved throughout the day but the yardage doesn't have much to show in relation to points. Eli's two fourth quarter interceptions closed the door on any opportunity to win this game. The Giants actually had one last shot with a little less than two minutes to go but on the second throw from Eli was picked. A bad read on an underneath route allowed the linebacker to cut underneath and intercept Eli's throw. When the Giants needed Eli the most he came up empty today regardless of the massive yardage he threw this game.

2016 Week 2 vs NO (32 / 41 / 368 / 0 / 0 pass, 4 / -4 / 0 rush)

Eli Manning had an extremely efficient day passing against the Saints and was almost mistake free. Manning got excellent pass protection for most of the game though the running game was not stellar by any means. The Saints were thin at cornerback due to injuries and the Giants took full advantage of this. Manning and his receivers had their way working up and down the field for a lot of this game, taking advantage of many mismatches. Manning saw a lot of separation between his receivers and the defense which led to a lot of first downs. Manning drew several defensive pass interference calls by throwing deep to Beckham jr. and wasn't afraid to throw downfield. Manning got into the redzone early but twice was unable to score as his receivers couldn't come up with the ball when he threw it up for contention. Manning had excellent chemistry with Beckham jr. with key first downs being picked up on short routes outside. Manning also rolled out of the pocket twice and hooked up with Beckham while throwing on the run. He did turn the ball over on a questionable fumble call that was reviewed and upheld as he was sacked in the pocket. Manning and the offense struggled heavily in the redzone however and turnovers also killed many drives. Manning almost hit Cruz in the endzone for a score on an out route but the ball was tipped at the line. Despite the low score on the scoreboard, yards were not a problem for him to pick up as he fired passes over the middle into tight windows. Manning and Cruz sealed the victory on his final pass. Manning lobbed a high ball deep down the sideline and Cruz wrestled the ball away at its highest point to give the Giants the win. Not an impressive game in the stat sheet but Manning was decisive, accurate and moved the ball with ease for most of the game. Manning also should have had a touchdown pass to Beckham jr. late in the game on a perfect fade pass but the ball was dropped.

2016 Week 1 vs DAL (19 / 28 / 207 / 3 / 1 pass, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)

Eli Manning was on form on Sunday evening against Dallas and looked extremely comfortable in this offense for most of the game. Manning got great production on the ground from his rushing attack to keep defenses honest and his offensive line blocked very well for him in obvious passing situations. Manning got off to a slightly shaky start early as he failed to hit Beckham jr. over the middle and went 3 and out. Manning fired back on the next drive however and really lit up the Dallas secondary. Manning found Beckham jr deep on a fade route down the sideline, placing the ball perfectly in stride for his receiver to run after the catch. Manning then did an excellent job of seeing the field in the redzone as he spotted receiver Donnell was open almost straight away on a seam route for the score. Manning's second touchdown was a brilliant catch by rookie receiver Shepard on another fade route in the redzone. Manning's pass was slightly underthrown to the back of the endzone but his receiver made an an excellent play on the ball to secure it despite a defender in very close proximity. Manning's only turnover was a very silly interception to the outside. Manning was pressured in the pocket and rushed a throw to receiver Shepard on a curl route without properly scanning his target area. The Dallas cornerback was waiting in the receivers place and easily snagged the pick. Manning made the most out of the times he was afforded excellent pass protection by surveying the field and hitting receivers on deep in breaking patterns for first downs. Manning missed Beckham jr. on an out rout in the redzone, placing the ball too high for his receiver which allowed the defender to push him out of bounds before he could secure two feet in bounds. Manning shrugged this off however on the very next play, as he patiently waited in the pocket before spotting receiver Cruz running free in the back of the endzone on a crosser pattern for his third touchdown.
