Eli Manning QB NYG 7 Days
Manning (back) completed 23-of-34 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's win over Washington.
Manning connected with eight different receivers, but rookie Odell Beckham was by far his favorite option, catching 12 passes on 15 targets for 143 yards and all three of Manning's scores. It'll be much tougher in Week 16 against the Rams, who have allowed the third-fewest passing touchdowns this season, including zero in the last three games, and two in their last five.

Manning (back) is active for Sunday's game versus Washington, Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record reports.
Manning's status wasn't really in peril this week, as he was listed as limited following practice both Wednesday and Thursday but wasn't restricted, according to coach Tom Coughlin and the quarterback himself. Meanwhile, Manning will face a Washington defense that doesn't put up much of a fight on a weekly basis, which has continued in four contests since their Week 10 bye (281.8 passing yards per game and 10 touchdown throws surrendered).

Manning (back) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Washington, the New York Daily News' Ralph Vacchiano reports.
Manning's back injury is not a significant concern, and he gets a good matchup against a Washington pass defense that is ranked 12th in the league in passing yards allowed but gives up a lot of touchdowns (28). He should be safe to use this week.

Manning (back) was listed as limited in Thursday's practice, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports. After drills, coach Tom Coughlin said, "Eli [Manning] practiced well. He did everything. There weren't any real restrictions on him."
Coughlin's comments seem to contradict Manning's eventual listing on the practice participation report, but in any case, his availability for Sunday's game against Washington isn't really in question. Manning will be a sneaky play against a defense that has allowed 281.8 yards per game and 10 passing touchdowns in the last four contests.

Manning (back) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.
Although he was listed as limited, Manning himself didn't feel that way during drills and appears poised to be under center, as usual, Sunday against Washington. With an average of 41 pass attempts over the past five games, he should produce against a defense that has surrendered a ridiculous 11.2 yards per pass attempt and 10 touchdown throws in the last four outings.

Manning was listed on Wednesday's pre-practice injury report with a back injury, Newsfay's Tom Rock reports.
The extent of Manning's setback is uncertain, and it is not clear how much he will be able to participate in Wednesday's practice, but expect an update on his status sometime later Wednesday.

Manning completed 26-of-42 passes for 260 yards, with one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 36-7 win over the Titans.
Manning continues to rely heavily on rookie wideout Odell Beckham, who caught 11 passes on 15 targets for 130 yards and a touchdown. However, he may have to start spreading the ball around more, as he's failed to throw multiple touchdowns passes in four of the last five games, turning the ball over 11 times in that span. Up next is a Week 15 matchup against a Redskins defense that has allowed the third-most passing touchdowns this season, including four to Manning back in Week 4.

Manning had a tough game in Sunday's 25-24 defeat at Jacksonville, losing a pair of key fumbles that contributed to the loss. He finished with 247 yards passing and one touchdown.
Manning's initial fumble was recovered in the end zone, to give the Jaguars their first touchdown of the game, while also giving them some life at 21-10. Through a series of other miscues in the second half, most notably on a Larry Donnell fumble that was returned for a touchdown, Jacksonville made a big rally. With the Giants needing a field goal in the final minute, Manning lost the ball on a sack, ending the game. The veteran QB looked good earlier in the contest, routinely hooking up with rookie Odell Beckham, while also throwing a nice three-yard touchdown to Preston Parker. It all fell apart for Manning and the Giants in the second half, although it wasn't all his fault. He'll have a juicy matchup in Week 14, facing a suspect Titans' defense.

Manning completed 29-of-40 passes for 339 yards, with three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Cowboys.
Manning mostly played a good game, even though his lone interception was an ugly one in the red zone, which mimicked his issues from last week. He often looked in the direction of rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham, who finished with 10 catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns on 12 targets, topping 90 yards for a fourth consecutive game. Beckham's emergence has largely made up for the loss of Victor Cruz (knee), but both Manning and the offensive line have been highly inconsistent this season. Manning gets another favorable matchup in Week 13, with the Giants traveling to Jacksonville.

Manning completed 22 of 45 passes for 280 yards and one touchdown, but he was sacked twice and threw five interceptions in a home loss to the 49ers on Sunday.
Manning connected with six different receivers, throwing 28 of his 45 passes to starting wideouts Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham, while tight end Larry Donnell caught the lone touchdown pass. After turning the ball over five times in the first seven games of the season, Manning has lost the ball eight times in the last three games, as issue he hopes to pull away from in Week 12 against a Cowboys defense that he threaded for 248 yards and three touchdowns in Week 7.
