New York Giants Bench Eli Manning for Daniel Jones

Brad Penner - USA Today Sports

It’s over.

Mercifully, the Eli Manning era has come to an end in New York  New Jersey:

It had to happen.

Unfortunately, the Eagles won’t get to face Eli twice this year, barring an injury to Jones. The Birds are 16-4 against Manning over the last 20 meetings, which equates to a win percentage of 80. Jones looked pretty smooth in preseason action, so we’ll see what he’s got in week three, when the G-Men travel to Tampa Bay for a matchup with the 1-1 Bucs before returning home to host the 0-2 Redskins. Golden Tate comes off suspension in week five, so Jones will have a bit more to work with sooner rather than later.

RIP to the Eli Manning era. What an era it was.

  1. Still was QB on two Super Bowl winning teams. Was a hack besides that but still, gotta give it to him.

    1. True statement. Loved seeing him get beat up during games, but still he lasted through how many coaches and endured how many prima donna receivers, plus won two SB’s. Have to respect that
