Eli Manning and his New York Giants fell to the Atlanta Falcons 34 -0. Manning and his Giants have not been playing good football at all lately. Manning had a poor game, the Falcons defense gave Eli and company more than they could handle shutting out the defending super bowl champions. Eli threw 2 interceptions in the game, he only had 13 completions for 161 yards and it isn’t that often you see a Manning play this poorly no matter which Manning we are talking about. The New York Giants are having a terrible season, at 8-6 and in a tie with the Washington Redskins they are in danger of missing post season play. The Giants have to find a way to get wins in their last 2 games. Getting shut out by the Falcons is not what the team nor the fans expected. The Giants didn’t play like the Giants we have come to know. Manning has to find a way to get his team focused for their last 2 games. The Giants have to face the Baltimore Ravens next and they finish the regular season against the Eagles.  We know the Ravens will be looking for blood after they to the other Manning yesterday. Eli certainly is going to have his work cut out for him.
