- Jake Ballard caught a pass from the opposite side of the field from Eli Manning and was tackled at the one yard line. It was originally ruled a touchdown, but the officials correctly placed the ball at the one yard line, and Brandon Jacobs punched it in on the next play.
- Kolb lobbed a deep ball to Larry Fitzgerald that was picked off by former Cardinal Antrel Rolle who leapt in front of the all pro receiver and gave the ball back to the offense in great field position at their own 42.

Adam Carman, BGB Assistant EditorGiants-Cardinals games have always had dramatic finishes. Going all the way back to when Arizona/Phoenix was bewilderingly part of the NFC East (makes as much sense as Dallas, I guess) and played them twice a year, it never mattered how good the Giants were or how bad the Cardinals were, the games were close, hard-fought and dramatic. The Cardinals...

Really shaky early, positively electrifying late. Eli Manning (27 of 40, 321 yards) was 14 of 17 for 180 yards and 2 TDs in the fourth quarter. Hakeem Nicks (10-162, 1 TD) dominated and Victor Cruz (6-98) was clutch. Running game (54 yards) wasn’t there. B+

After Sunday’s win over the Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium — capped by another crazy play followed promptly by the game-winning touchdown pass, just like Super Bowl XLII — Giants quarterback Eli Manning seemed to think the Giants had gotten away with one, thanks to the ruling that kept the ball in New York’s…
Eli Manning isn't perfect, still not quite Tom Brady. There are wayward passes and there was a devastating fumble against the Cards. But he's distributing the ball nicely to his receivers despite the lack of a real running game. He managed two comeback drives and delivered on that 29-yard fade to Hakeem Nicks for the winner.
Maybe there is a little Tom Brady in Eli Manning after all. Lost in the drama of Victor Cruz's did-he-or-didn't-he fumble on the Giants' final scoring drive Sunday was this fact: Manning suddenly has emerged as one of the league's hottest quarterbacks.
