Eli Manning Rolls Back the Years, Will Giants Stick with Him Again?

Eli Manning

His last-second heave from the Giants' 21 went out of the end zone, but it was a throw on the previous drive that left him frustrated after the game.

The first Beckham touchdown put the Giants ahead 7-3 - providing a rare lead - as Brown did a good job blocking defensive end Cassius Marsh, providing Manning an extra second to spot Beckham working the back of the end zone. Mullens completed 27 of 39 passes for 250 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. "He played his game".

The Giants had not owned a lead in a game in more than a month - since losing to the Panthers on October 7 - and trailed early on former Giants kicker Robbie Gould's 53-yard field goal. "He's as good as it gets in terms of a dude and in terms of a guy".

"I thought he hung in there, made some really good throws and got us in the end zone, " Shurmur said. As Beckham trotted to the sideline, he tapped his fingers to his chest, as if to say, "What about me?" The first of those interceptions being a set up for a 10-yard touchdown pass from Manning to Beckham.

"It was a number of plays", coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.

On the bright side, Mullens didn't back down at the first sign of trouble.

The Niners then drove down for a late field goal to take the lead at the break as the Giants trailed at the half for the eighth time this season.

"We had multiple opportunities to end it and didn't", tight end George Kittle said. "He was great. He has a great voice". "He's a good pocket passer, so I want him to be ideal at it". "We've been in many close games so we know how to lose 'em". He's going to keep doing that. He is only the seventh quarterback in National Football League history with 350 or more touchdown passes.


There were only 53 seconds left on the clock when Manning threw to Sterling Shepard for a 3-yard touchdown to win the game.

How long he'll be able to do that for, remains to be seen.

But that doesn't mean Mullens doesn't have more to offer, nor should he be denied the chance to show it.

And not only that, he can lead his team back from a deficit to win games late, which is exactly what he did in the 27-23 win at Levi's Stadium.

"Then on game day, you put all your energy into winning, all your energy into putting a winning performance on the field, and so I sensed real joy in the locker room yesterday - a bunch of guys that put a lot into it, and we were able to overcome some adversity and win a football game".

Likewise, Mullens was focused only on the frustration of San Francisco's fifth loss in a one-possession game this season, especially another in which the Niners turned it over twice and failed to come up with any takeaways of their own. And the team needs that. He did enough against the Raiders to earn another start.

The goal now for the Giants is to try to put a couple of wins together.
