New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur told reporters Friday that the team is not considering benching quarterback Eli Manning. "No," Shurmur said firmly when asked if a change at quarterback is on the table. "We believe in Eli." Manning, 37, threw an interception on the second play from scrimmage in Thursday night's 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and finished 24 of 43 for 281 yards.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning knows he can play better as the veteran's struggles continued against the Philadelphia Eagles. Manning was 24-of-43 passing for 281 yards with an interception in New York's 34-13 defeat to NFL Super Bowl champions the Eagles on Thursday. Discussing his woes and the Giants' struggles are falling to a 1-5 this term, Manning said: "I know I can play better.

New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur voiced support for quarterback Eli Manning on Friday, a day after a 34-13 loss to Philadelphia dropped the NFL team to 1-5. "We believe in Eli," Shurmur said. Two-time Super Bowl winner Manning has come in for heavy criticism as the team has floundered in the first six weeks of the NFL season.

Despite mounting losses and a first season quickly turning into a mess, Pat Shurmur is sticking with Eli Manning as the New York Giants quarterback. Shurmur acknowledged Manning made some mistakes in the loss Thursday night at MetLife Stadium, but so did a lot of other players. Statistically, Manning has played well.

The New York Giants fell to 1-5 on Thursday night after a 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, and the chorus of criticism for longtime Giants quarterback Eli Manning is growing louder. The play of the 37-year-old Manning has fallen sharply (ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan provides a deeper look, including statistical proof), and after changing and adding so much – the Giants are on their third head coach since 2015, have a new general manager, have invested in a new left tackle, have an impressive roster of skill players and spent the No. 2 pick in this year’s draft on Saquon Barkley – they’re still not winning or scoring points. Geno Smith, who spent last year with the Giants, thinks former coach Ben McAdoo is owed an apology.

Breathe a little easier Philadelphia and surrounding areas. The Eagles are back and looking super. Just goes to show you what a little urgency, some big plays — and a timely game against the New York Giants can do for the defending Super Bowl champions.

Odell Beckham Jr. couldn’t even wait until halftime. Instead, the New York Giants star chose to do what so many at MetLife Stadium wish they could have. The sight of Beckham fleeing the sideline with two seconds left on the clock in the second quarter — and his offense still on the field against the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night — seemed to signal the fraying of his last nerve and his patience with this pathetic football team.

Another season appears to be quickly spiraling out of control for the New York Giants after a thorough beating handed down by the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday night in New Jersey. The Giants mustered just one offensive touchdown in a 34-13 loss to the Eagles that dropped New York to 1-5 on the season for a second straight year. Manning has come under more scrutiny this season than ever before as the Giants offense continues to struggle despite having capable offensive weapons in Odell Beckham Jr., Saquon Barkley and Sterling Shepard on the roster.

Breathe a little easier Philadelphia and surrounding areas. The Eagles are back and looking super. Just goes to show you what a little urgency, some big plays - and a timely game against the New York Giants can do for the defending Super Bowl champions.
