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.

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.

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.

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.

Eli Manning completed 12-of-16 passes for 91 yards and one interception in Saturday’s preseason dress rehearsal against the Jets.

He was also sacked twice for six yards. Antonio Cromartie anticipated Manning’s last pass of the night and took it all the way back for an easy pick-six. He was looking for James Jones on the play. It wasn’t one of Eli’s better outings, but at least he got on the same page with Odell Beckham (five catches for 31 yards) after missing him five times in last week’s win over the Jaguars. The 12-year veteran will finish the preseason 20-of-39 for 158 yards and no touchdowns.
Aug 29 - 9:37 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger reports contract talks between the Giants and Eli Manning could extend into the regular season.

"Nobody, not even those handling the negotiations, can accurately predict an end point," beat writer Jordan Raanan said. "It doesn't appear to be any time soon." A report early this week suggested a "significant gap" still exists between the two sides. Giants owner John Mara wants to extend Manning before Week 1.
Aug 21 - 5:25 PM

Eli Manning denied reports that he’s looking to become the highest-paid quarterback.

"The reports are all wrong," Manning said. "That's never been said, it's never come out of my mouth, I've never said it to my agent, I don't know where people are getting their information." The Giants want to extend Manning before the season, but there’s no real deadline between the sides. Manning reportedly could command Philip Rivers money ($65 million guaranteed).
Aug 19 - 6:43 PM

Giants owner John Mara wants to reach a deal with Eli Manning before the season begins.

"We're going to try to lock him up," Mara said. "We're still having discussions with his agent and our goal is to still try to reach a contract with him, hopefully before the regular season starts or as soon thereafter as possible." A report surfaced Monday saying Eli wants to be the NFL's highest-paid player while another suggested a "significant gap" still existed in negotiations. What this flurry of reports likely means is a deal is close. It would be surprise if the two sides do not reach an agreement before the season.
Aug 18 - 8:56 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports contract-year QB Eli Manning wants to be the NFL's highest-paid player.

He wants more than Aaron Rodgers. More than Russell Wilson. And more than Philip Rivers. Rivers, who's a month younger than Eli, just signed a deal that includes a whopping $65 million guaranteed with the Chargers. Rodgers got $54 million guaranteed back in 2013. There's still said to be a "significant gap" in contract talks between Manning and the G-Men.
