Big Giants Boom:
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 helped fuel the embarrassing collapse in 2009, but we beat them narrowly in 2008, the year they went on to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.Sunday's game was no exception. After being dominated for the first three quarters and trailing by ten points at two different times in the 4th, the Giants rallied to stun the Arizona Cardinals 31-27 behind two touchdown passes in fifty-eight seconds by Captain Comeback, Easy Eli Manning. You can find the official recap on www.giants.com, but suffice it to say it wasn't easy. Manning overcame two bad turnovers (both fumbles, one by himself and one by Bradsha...

There was no doubt Giants quar terback Eli Manning was going to dramatically decrease his interception total this season after last year's career-worst 25 picks. No doubt at all.
It didn't sit well with Manning that he threw more interceptions than any other NFL quarterback. A bunch of...
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.
