Shatter The Backboard:
There were many outstanding performances in Week 2, some were even record-breaking. Some with names that you probably don’t even have on your roster. And then there were those that disappointed the owners who drafted them so soon (and in most cases so high) on draft day. Here is a list of both studs and duds that stood out last week:
Eli Manning-QB-Giants- Against a pretty good defense that had given up only 10 points to Cam Newton and the Panthers a week earlier, Eli and the Giants teed off for quadruple that amount on Sunday at Met Life Stadium.… Ream more

Giants coach Tom Coughlin yelled at first-year Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano after the Giants' 41-34 victory on Sunday because he didn't like that Schiano told his players to knock Giants quarterback Eli Manning down when Manning was taking a knee to run out the final seconds, ESPNNewYork.com reported. "I don't think you do that," Coughlin said after the game...
Following the Giants 41-34 comeback win over the Buccanneers, we got ourselves a flashback to the Harbaugh-Schwartz kerfuffle from last season when Tom Coughlin confronted Bucs rookie head coach Greg Schiano during the post-game handshake.
Coughlin was upset that the Bucs defensive line shoved Eli Manning backward during the Giants kneel down attempt at the...
Eli Manning passed for 510 yards Sunday as the New York Giants completed their 41-34 comeback victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He becomes the 13th player to surpass that statistical marvel.
Manning tied Drew Brees for the ninth best single-game total in NFL history. The Lions' Matthew Stafford was the last to do it, throwing for 520 yards in Week 17 of the 2011 season...
There has been a lot of discussion about the Bucs going after Giants quarterback Eli Manning when he took a knee in the waning moments of the Giants win.
Bucs coach Greg Schiano was unapologetic about it according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.
"I don't know if that's not something that's done in the National Football League," Schiano said. "...

The New York Giants got an all-time passing performance from Eli Manning to come out on top last week. With Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers up next, it's possible that the Giants will need another spectacular game from their star quarterback Thursday night.
The high-profile matchup of QBs with contrasting styles will be on display when the Giants visit the Panthers in a...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Cam Newton threw for 253 yards and ran for a career-high 71 yards as the Carolina Panthers defeated New Orleans 35-27 on Sunday to hand the Saints their first 0-2 start since 2007.
One week after tying a franchise low with 10 yards rushing in a 16-10 loss to Tampa Bay, the Panthers rediscovered their running game against a porous Saints defense. The Panthers...
Week 2 only had six comeback opportunities, but Captain Comeback Scott Kacsmar has the details on Eli Manning's big day, the "awful 2-0" Eagles, and the end of New England's clutch kicking streak.
Hero of The GameThe way the New York Giants opened up against the Tampa Bay Bucs, the last thing you would've guessed was Eli Manning having a record setting performance. I tend to think the hero of the game has a direct impact that effects the final score, therefore I had to consider a few Giants other than Manning. Though Manning played well down the stretch, Manning was unquestionably...
We escaped Monday Night with a win thanks to our Monday Night teaser special with the Broncos (+10) & Over 44. My initial gut feeling was to be all over the Falcons (-3), but there was lots of chatter of a Peyton Manning outright win, so I figured, there’s no way Peyton will lose by double digits on Monday Night, right? Well, he almost did, but we got the cover with our teaser...
New York Giants QB Eli Manning threw a perfect pass to an in stride Victor Cruz which went for 80 yards, just when the Giants needed it most against The Buccaneers. Victor Cruz followed up the TD catch with his famous ‘Salsa’ dance celebration in honor of his late grandmother. It was graceful, as always.

Eli Leads Giants Comeback over Bucs
The second game for the season started off poorly for the Giants, much like the opening night game against the Cowboys; this time around, the Giants were able to get it together and mount a successful comeback against the Buccaneers, pulling out the 41-34 win. The Giants were down 27-13 early in the...
During the final play of today’s Giants-Buccaneeers game, quarterback Eli Manning kneeled the ball to secure a Giants win. But it looks like Bucs head coach Greg Schiano told his team to keep fighting and to try to get the ball back.
Once Manning snapped the ball, the Bucs defensive front rushed through the line and knocked him down.
Giants head coach Tom Coughlin was furious...
Thursday night's matchup between the New York Giants and Carolina Panthers could very well be one of the the most exciting games of 2012, as both teams are coming off of impressive wins in week 2 and fully expect to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Wait, what? The Super Bowl?Before the season started, most analysts were in agreement that the Green Bay Packers would be world...
The Giants and others in the media are complaining about the Buccaneers’ behavior on the last play of Sunday’s game, and I’m not really sure why.
The Bucs were down 41-34 and had just given the ball to the Giants after an interception by Josh Freeman. Sure they were upset about blowing a 27-13 lead and then turning the ball over in the final minute, but the game wasn’t...
