Many wondered how the Giants would respond after a shaky performance in the Giants home opener last week. Eli Manning responded by having a career day. Because of that, Manning was named this weeks NFC Offensive Player of the Week. The Giants QB led them to a 26-19 road victory of the “dream team,” the Philadelphia Eagles. Manning threw for four touchdowns, no interceptions and 254 yards.
His passer rating was 145.7, his highest ever in a game in which he threw more than 10 passes. It was the fifth-highest passer rating in Giants history. Manning also registered his 15th comeback victory. What’s more impressive is that Manning is 5-2 in Philadelphia as a starter.
