Is Manning's value more than Colts bargained for?

A Super Bowl title, four MVP awards and playoff appearances in every season save one during the last decade, speak volumes about how much Peyton Manning means to the Indianapolis Colts.

Nothing comes easy for Eli on sloppy afternoon

Eli Manning threw for a career-high 420 yards yesterday, piling up yards and first downs. But the Giants quarterback also committed four turnovers, by far the most costly an interception returned 94 yards with just over a minute left to play that all but sealed a crushing 36-25 loss to...

Giants insider: Eli's career day wasted

Eli Manning was all set up for a remarkable, Tom Brady-like day. He had his career high in passing yards, three touchdowns and a chance to finish off a fourth-quarter comeback for the 18th time in his career.

Is Manning's value more than Colts bargained for?

A Super Bowl title, four MVP awards and playoff appearances in every season save one during the last decade, speak volumes about how much Peyton Manning means to the Indianapolis Colts.

Tom Brady, Peyton Manning Scheduled to Renew Rivalry at Gillette Stadium in 2012

The Patriots can now begin looking into travel arrangements for the 2012 regular season. The Patriots will host the Bills, Dolphins, Jets, Colts, Texans, 49ers, Cardinals and an AFC West team in 2012. The AFC West team will be based on alignment in the standings. For instance, if the Patriots win the division, they'll play the AFC West winner. The Patriots will visit the Bills...

Colts still trying to dig out of winless hole

The Indianapolis Colts are accustomed to fast starts, not winless ones. This year, they're in uncharted territory. Peyton Manning still hasn't played a down, the injuries are mounting and the Colts head into a three-game road trip as the league's only 0-5 team. Each successive loss draws the ire of fans who are calling for changes on defense. And the calls grow to...

Jacobs: 'No question' Giants' Manning outshines Romo

Be true to your quarterback. That's the mindset of Giants running back Brandon Jacobs, who didn't hold back when comparing Eli Manning to Tony Romo.

Smith: These ain't your daddy's Giants

The Giants tradition is all out of whack now. You know the Big Blue creed about being able to run the football and being able to stop the run. It's more myth than reality, at least the way the Giants have been playing football the last few weeks. In a game the Giants could have and should have won, Eli Manning threw for 420 yards and the Giants rushed for 69 yards on 25 carries.

NFL experiencing record run of 400-yard passing games

NFL fans may some day be able to tell their children and grandchildren about a time when the 400-yard passing game was something truly special. The year 2011 may go down as the season when that time ended. The 400-yard passing game has become the norm, just another ho-hum passing number. With Eli Manning going…

Bengals Quoting Jim Mora? Playoffs?

Uh oh, you’re being sucked in. That’s all right, so am I. We know deep-down the Bengals are going to blow it at some point, but right now it’s damn fun being 3-2 after a lot of people predicted the Bengals would finish 3-13. The latest win for “The Dalton Gang” came Sunday in Jacksonville when Cincinnati prevailed 30-20 in comeback fashion. And now with the 0-5 Indianapolis...

MMQB: Seahawks play ringmaster in New York with Circus win

Brandon Choate breaks down the week 5 matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants in his Seahawks Monday morning quarterback. The Seahawks came away with a huge win on the east coast. Despite giving up career days to Eli Manning and Victor Cruz, the Seahawks held their ground and came up victorious. Charlie Whitehurst, Chris Clemons, Brandon Browner, and Doug Baldwin...

Grading the Giants

OFFENSED There were certainly some electrifying plays, including amazing catches by Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks and two pile-pushing catches and runs by Jake Ballard. But even though Eli Manning threw for 420 yards and three touchdowns, he was sloppy with the ball. He had three interceptions and fumbled twice, losing one of them. The Giants just can't seem to run the ball as...

The Same Old Giants Song

There's almost always a theme to the public comments of an NFL team leading up to Sunday.  For the Giants this week, the theme is ball security. Everybody associated with the team is talking up the way the Bills force turnovers and stressing the need for the Giants to avoid them if they are going to come away with a win this weekend. On the surface, the talk makes sense. The...
