New England Patriots
Opposing defenses are not only having a tough time stopping Eli Manning this season, they are barely touching the New York Giants quarterback,
The two-time Super Bowl MVP has been sacked a league-low five times through the first six games of the season, and he's been hit only 11 times - total.
Even more impressive heading into Sunday's game against Washington (3-3) is this: The offensive line has not allowed Manning to be sacked in the last three games.
Manning can't explain the recent run, but he is not complaining.
''They're playing great,'' Manning said. ''We're running the ball well, the pass protection has been good, and the receivers have been getting open.
''It's been pretty smooth, and hopefully, we keep it that way.''
One of the rarest sights in the past three weeks came in the first quarter of New York's 26-3 win over San Francisco Sunday. Manning dropped back to pass and was drilled by linebacker Ah...

Giants rookie running back David Wilson believes that one day, he'll be in the Hall of Fame. He also likened himself to birth control in an interesting analogy.
New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw may have
suffered a setback to his surgically repaired feet as he was held out of
practice Wednesday. The Giants didn’t specify which foot is injured, but he’s
had surgeries on both over the last few years, reports Alex Raskin

on the ground in his last two games, Giants running...
It seems obvious enough. The New York Giants must beat the Washington Redskins this Sunday in order to secure their first win within the NFC East. The coaches know it, the players know it, and the fans know it as well. This Sunday is a huge game for Big Blue, and there's no reason to think the team will disappoint. After embarrassing the San Francisco 49ers on the road in Week...
Now that David Wilson is out of the Giants’ doghouse, he’s focusing on the bigger picture. Not to gain a few more carries each week or definitively earning the coaching staff’s trust, but quite literally the biggest picture possible.
“I think at the end of my career, I’ll be in the Hall of Fame,” Wilson said, via NFL.com. “I know myself and I know (when) I have guys...
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul must feel pretty good about himself after he broke out of his funk and terrorized the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
He must also feel good about his chances of putting some heat on the Washington Redskins Robert Griffin III after watching teams such as the Atlanta Falcons lay multiple licks on him.
Today he said that he has some advice...
They entered the NFL together in the 2006 draft class and quickly became starters for their respective teams as rookies.
Barry Cofield began laying the groundwork to establish himself as one of the NFL's top defensive tackles.
Kevin Boothe got cut by Oakland the following year.
As fate would have it, they would become teammates for four seasons with the New York Giants.
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is ready to face Washington rookie phenom Robert Griffin III on Sunday. He even offfered some words of caution. "Don't bring it to my side," Pierre-Paul told the New York Daily News. "Go the other way." Pierre-Paul expects the Redskins' fleet quarterback to try to run at a Giants defense that he believes...
Robert Griffin III has apparently earned the respect of Osi Umenyiora.
The Giants defensive end didn't buy into the hype of the Redskins rookie quarterback prior to the season, and thus said he'd only refer to the Heisman Trophy winner as "Bob."
However, as the two NFC East teams get ready to battle on Sunday, Umenyiora is giving Griffin some...
The New York Giants secondary should know that Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan feels their pain.
Morgan can relate first-hand to the injuries that all four of New York's starters (cornerbacks Prince Amukamara and Corey Webster and safeties Antrel Rolle and Kenny Phillips) have battled through so far this season. Morgan told FOXSports.com that he himself is dealing...
It's a passing league - no secret to anyone. But the Broncos may have been onto something last year. While teams shift to passing offenses, the Broncos could have doubled down on being a power run team and been competitive. Defenses are being built to stop passing attacks, not the University of Nebraska rushing attack of the 80s. While I think some team will eventually...
