Eli Manning QB NYG 21 Days

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.

Manning completed 29-of-44 passes for 283 yards, with one touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 38-17 loss at Seattle. He also lost a fumble late in the game.

Manning did a nice job finding rookie Odell Beckham and Preston Paker, as the two young wideouts combined to catch 14-of-15 targets for 187 yards and a touchdown. In the three games since Victor Cruz (knee) was lost for the season, Manning has been strong from a statistical standpoint, mainly due to garbage-time production, but the offense has struggled on the whole. Not that Cruz was having an amazing season, and the Giants' funk started the same week he got hurt at Philadelphia, but Manning has looked out of sorts lately, including most of the second half in Sunday's loss. On a positive note, he's done a good job protecting the ball this season, with just two interceptions in the last seven games. Rashad Jennings (knee) is expected back soon, possibly in Week 11, which could boost the Giants' offense a bit, while taking some pressure off of the veteran QB. Next up for Manning are the 49ers, who have been generally been tough against the pass this season.

Manning completed 27-of-52 passes for 359 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Monday's 40-24 loss to the Colts.

Though he didn't turn the ball over, Manning also didn't do much of note before the fourth quarter, when he tacked on a good chunk of his yards and both touchdown passes in garbage time. The huge fourth quarter was a delightful surprise for owners, and it likely flipped quite a few matchups, but it doesn't change the reality of the Giants' offensive struggles. The receivers and offensive line were both awful for much of Monday's game, and Manning also played rather poorly until it was too late. The combination of inaccurate throws, dropped passes and missed blocks made for a disastrous first half, one in which the Giants had seven punts, a lost fumble and a field goal on nine drives. The team's only touchdown drive before garbage time came in the third quarter, and it almost entirely consisted of long catch-and-run plays by Andre Williams and Odell Beckham. Further adding to Maning's woes, starting left guard Weston Richburg left the game with a leg injury that appears to be serious. Really, the only positives from the last few weeks have been Beckham's performance and a strong Week 7 showing against the Cowboys. Manning will face that same Dallas defense again in Week 12, but he must first travel to Seattle in Week 10, followed by a Week 11 home game against the 49ers.

Manning completed 21-of-33 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 31-21 loss at Dallas.

Manning's offensive line was better, after last week's six-sack debacle at Philadelphia, as he wasn't dropped for a loss Sunday. He was able to reconnect with TE Larry Donnell, hooking up with him seven times for 90 yards. Also, Manning did a good job working in the red zone with rookie Odell Beckham, who caught a pair of short touchdowns. It will be interesting to see how productive the offense will be without Victor Cruz, but for at least one week, the unit looked fine. Manning won't play next week, as the Giants have their bye, so he'll return in week 9 against Indianapolis.

Manning completed 13-of-23 passes for 151 yards in Sunday's 27-0 loss to the Eagles. He was sacked six times and did not commit any turnovers.

There wasn't a ton that Manning could have done, as his offensive line looked like the group charged with protecting him last season. One terrible showing doesn't erase all of the Giants' offensive progress, but Manning will likely have to play the rest of the season without top wide receiver Victor Cruz, who suffered a torn patellar tendon during Sunday's game. Also concerning is the lack of contribution from tight end Larry Donnell, who has just one reception for six yards on two targets over the last two games. Wide receivers Odell Beckham and Reuben Randle still offer some hope for the New York passing game, and Manning gets a manageable matchup in Dallas next week.

Manning completed 19-of-30 passes for 200 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Falcons.

The Giants trailed 20-10 with under six minutes remaining in the third quarter, but closed out the game scoring 20 unanswered points, which included a 15-yard touchdown pass from Manning to rookie Odell Beckham, who was making his NFL debut after missing the first four games with a hamstring injury. Manning completed passes to seven different receivers, but the Giants ran the ball 32 times (not counting Manning's two carries), as he was left to do little more then manage the offense. Up next is a Week 6 division game against the Eagles, who are giving up the fourth-most passing yards per game in the NFL, while allowing a league-high 13 passing touchdowns this season.

Over the Giants' last two games, Manning's gotten rid of the ball in a blistering two seconds per snap, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

According to Pro Football Focus, Manning has held the ball for less time than anyone other than his brother Peyton so far this season, and over the last two games, Eli's even faster than him. Combined with improved offensive line play, Manning's rarely been under pressure the last two games. He should have another good matchup at home this week against the Falcons.

Manning completed 28-of-39 passes for 300 yards, with four touchdowns and an interception in Thursday's 45-14 win over the Redskins. His only carry was a one-yard touchdown scramble.

Manning had the New York offense humming for a second straight week, as even the interception would have been a Big Blue touchdown, if not for a fantastic play by Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather, who used his helmet to dislodge the ball from WR Reuben Randle's hands in the end zone. While Washington's porous pass defense certainly played a part in the success, both Manning and the New York offensive line look much improved from last season. Also helping matters, tight end Larry Donnell has been a revelation, with 25 receptions and four touchdowns through four weeks. Manning is still only a middle-of-the-pack option among the 32 starting quarterbacks, but he should fare well in a Week 5 home game against the Falcons.
