Eli Manning completed 24-of-44 passes for 361 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants' 27-26, Week 10 loss to the Patriots.
Manning threw for 251 yards and both of his touchdowns in the first half, staking the Giants to a 17-10 lead. Manning hooked up with Odell Beckham from 87 yards away to kick the scoring off for the Giants in the first quarter. Beckham roasted Malcolm Butler on the play, and then FS Devin McCourty took a bad angle, letting Beckham run all the way to the end zone. Manning's second score was a perfect toss to the back left corner of the end zone to Dwayne Harris from one yard out. The Giants head into their bye before traveling to Washington for Week 12. Manning is a borderline QB1/2. Nov 15 - 8:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 26-of-40 passes for 213 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions and ran the ball once for -1 yard in the Giants' Week 9 win over the Buccaneers.

Manning didn’t bring his A-game this week but you could hardly blame him with the awful weather conditions he had to play through in rainy Tampa Bay. His success was mostly limited to short and intermediate passes. Until the fourth quarter, Manning didn’t have a completion longer than 16 yards. His chemistry with Odell Beckham was especially hit or miss with the duo connecting just nine times on 17 passes. The last two weeks have really been a microcosm of Manning’s season. Some weeks he’s unbeatable and other times he looks like a below average quarterback. Fantasy owners get to roll the dice with Eli again next week against New England.

Eli Manning completed 30-of-41 passes for 350 yards and six touchdowns in New York's 52-49, Week 8 loss to the Saints.

Tossing six touchdowns in a loss feels like a uniquely-Eli achievement. The 101 combined points were the third most in NFL history. Aside from a fumble that the Giants recovered, Eli was basically perfect, routinely flaming the Saints' woeful secondary, Brandon Browner in particular. One of Manning's touchdowns was a total luck job that he threw across his body and the field on fourth down, but Rueben Randle also failed to make a play on what might (emphasis on might) have been TD No. 7 late. Booming and busting this season, Manning has a juicy Week 9 matchup in the Bucs.
Nov 1 - 4:49 PM

Eli Manning completed 13-of-24 passes for 170 yards, zero touchdowns and zero turnovers in New York's 27-20, Week 7 win over the Cowboys.

It was a strange game for the Giants, who got out-possessed 38:04-21:56, and mostly just sat back and watched as the Cowboys made mistakes. Eli had to do very little to help secure the win. The scoreless performance was his first since Week 1, where the Giants also played the Cowboys. Manning has had an up-and-down year, but he'll be an intriguing QB1 on the road against the Saints in Week 8.
Oct 25 - 7:29 PM

Eli Manning completed 23-of-37 passes for 200 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Giants' Week 6 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

Manning completed his first 10 passes of the night, which included a 5-of-5 for 59 yards and 13-yard touchdown pass to Odell Beckham on the opening drive of the game in which the Giants went right down the field and looked to be well on their way to posting a big number. However, that was all she wrote for the G-Men, as they didn't score again. Manning was picked off on the next possession when Larry Donnell weakly lost a fight for the ball to ILB DeMeco Ryans. Manning also threw a pick-six to CB Nolan Carroll on a telegraphed throw in the first half. Manning will be a back-end QB1 next week at home against Dallas.
Oct 19 - 11:47 PM

Eli Manning completed 41-of-54 passes for 441 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception in the Giants' Sunday night Week 5 win over the 49ers.

Manning led the Giants on a game-winning eight play, 82-yard scoring drive with a touchdown to Larry Donnell, but the narrative would have been different had an interception to 49ers CB Tramaine Brock not been overturned. He also threw touchdowns to Odell Beckham and Shane Vereen in the red-zone. Manning was forced to play without Beckham and Rueben Randle for most of the fourth quarter. It was easily his best game, but Manning’s Week 6 outlook should be downgraded with his top receivers dealing with injuries. Manning has 1,417 yards and a 10:2 TD/INT ratio through five weeks.
Oct 12 - 12:07 AM

Eli Manning completed 20-of-35 passes for 212 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Giants' 24-10, Week 4 win over the Bills.

The yards are nothing to write home about, but Manning was advantageous and controlled the game at the line of scrimmage, barking out pre-snap orders. Manning found slot man Dwayne Harris from 21 yards out for his first touchdown. Later, Manning hit Rueben Randle for an 11-yard touchdown on a slant before dumping one off to Rashad Jennings, who broke two tackles on the way to the end zone for a game-sealing 51-yard score. Manning tosses his first interception of the season late at the goal line, going for his fourth touchdown. Through four games, Manning is on pace for a 28:4 TD:INT ratio. Manning will be on the QB1 radar next week when the Giant host the 49ers' awful pass defense.
Oct 4 - 4:26 PM

Eli Manning completed 23-of-32 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns in New York's 32-21, Week 3 win over the Redskins.

For the third straight game, Manning avoided throwing a pick, but his second touchdown was a stroke of luck that helped seal the game. Rueben Randle was enveloped by Bashaud Breeland's coverage down the right sideline, but caught a lucky bounce off his own shoulder for a 41-yard touchdown. Manning's first score was a perfectly-executed post to Odell Beckham, who skied and ripped the ball out of the air for a 30-yard grab in the end zone. Manning has received mostly horrendous play from his non-ODB pass catchers thus far this season, but is expected to get Victor Cruz back for next week's road trip to Buffalo. Manning will be a low-end QB1 in that contest.
Sep 24 - 11:49 PM

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he was "frustrated" with Eli Manning's erratic play.

"I mean there are times when it’s tremendous," Coughlin said, "and then other times when it’s not." Manning played well for three quarters in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Falcons, but he and the Giants fell apart late in the game. Eli was stripped inside the 10-yard line to end a drive which could have put the Giants up by 17 late in the third quarter, and he then took a delay of game penalty on a crucial third down late in the game. New York's offense gained just 43 yards in the fourth quarter. Manning still looked good on the stat sheet with 292 yards and two touchdowns, and he will be in the QB1 conversation next week against the Redskins.
Sep 21 - 8:48 AM

Eli Manning completed 27-of-40 passes for 292 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions in New York's 24-20, Week 2 loss to the Falcons.

Eli added two rushes for 23 yards, but also fumbled twice, losing one. Manning's cough up came at the Falcons' eight-yard line, and was a ball he should have gotten rid of before getting stripped. Manning's biggest play of the day came in the second quarter, where Odell Beckham turned an ordinary post into a 67-yard score. Manning was hurt dearly by drops, but also sailed some critical throws late. He'll be on the QB1 borderline for next week's game against the Redskins.
Sep 20 - 4:40 PM

Eli Manning completed 20-of-36 passes for 193 yards in Sunday night's Week 1 loss to the Cowboys.

The Cowboys dominated time of possession, leaving Manning with just seven completions in the first half. Manning couldn't get anything going with Odell Beckham, forcing him to target Preston Parker six times. He didn't take any deep shots, with the majority of his yards coming on check downs to Shane Vereen. Manning will have a chance to bounce back against the Falcons secondary in Week 2.

Giants signed QB Eli Manning to a four-year, $84 million extension through 2019.

It also comes with a no-trade clause and $65 million guaranteed. We've seen a flurry of extensions signed this week. It's no surprise that deadlines spur action. Manning will be under the Giants' control through his age-38 season and probably spend his entire career with the team. His $21 million average falls in line with other established QBs like Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers.
Sep 11 - 11:14 AM's Ian Rapoport reports the Giants are "finalizing" a four-year, $84 million extension with contract-year QB Eli Manning.

Per Rapsheet, there are a "few details to hammer out," but that Manning could sign on the dotted line as early as Friday. Manning is making $17 million in 2015, and would be getting a $4 million annual raise. That's in line with most every other established starter in the league.
Sep 10 - 5:05 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger reports Eli Manning and the Giants could reach a contract extension before the season begins Sunday.

Owner John Mara has always stated he wants to reach a deal before the season begins, but the two sides are running out of time. For his part, Manning has said there has been progress in talks, but the quarterback insists his focus is on "getting ready for Dallas." Whether they get a deal done this week, during the season or after the Super Bowl, the one thing certain is Manning will not reach free agency next spring.
Sep 8 - 9:23 AM

Eli Manning and the rest of the Giants' starters are expected to play in the fourth preseason game.

Most coaches give their starters the game off with the regular season barely more than a week away, but Tom Coughlin is not most coaches. Even if the starters suit up, they are unlikely to see more than a series or two.
