Eli Manning: Right Arm Has To Carry New York Giants’ Offense

+Read full article

Robert Deutsche — USA Today Sports

The New York Giants won their game against the Oakland Raiders despite quarterback Eli Manning only throwing for 140 yards with one touchdown and one interception. For the Giants to be able to continue winning games, Manning has to play bigger and better.

The Giants have the Green Bay Packers at home next week, so it’s figuring to be another easy win. The Packers will go with Scott Tolzien, who took over for Seneca Wallace when he hurt his groin this past Sunday. The Packers also signed Matt Flynn, who was with the Packers before and had two strong performances filling in for Aaron Rodgers.

However, after their game against the Packers, the Giants will encounter difficult games. They’ll finish their three-game homestand against the rival Dallas Cowboys. After the game against the Cowboys, the Giants will play the Washington Redskins and San Diego Chargers on back-to-back weeks on the road.

Both of those games are games the Giants can win, as well, but they’ll need Manning to limit the mistakes. His interception that was returned for a touchdown by the Raiders’ Tracy Porter forced the coaches to run the ball more in order to avoid another mistake. The Giants only won by four because they were very conservative, and felt they had no other choice but to do so.

The Giants will not able to get conservative against the teams they having coming up, so if Manning can’t limit the interceptions, the Giants will be out of the playoffs for sure. However, if he can make plays like he has done in the past, the Giants can make a surprise bid for the division crown.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
