When people try to doubt why Eli Manning is an elite quarterback, they should look back at the tape of this game.
The Giants were down 14-0 at one point in this game, and it looked like it would be a long afternoon for the home team.
But did Eli Manning panic? Nope, not for one second. Manning just kept playing like his usual self, repeatedly marching the Giants into scoring position.
For the game, Manning took the Giants on five touchdown drives and two field-goal opportunities. After trailing 17-7 in the second quarter, the Manning-led offense scored 27 unanswered points.
Manning was able to get the ball to seven different receivers on Sunday despite being without two of his receivers, Hakeem Nicks and Ramses Barden. Yet, he still had another 300-yard passing game.
His offensive line gave him time to throw the football and find his receivers downfield, especially Victor Cruz who hauled in three of Manning's passes for touchdowns.
Manning doesn't get scared when his team is down or trailing. I think he thrives in those situations, knowing that he can put the team on his shoulders and lead them.
His brother did it for so many years and now he's earned the reputation as a clutch quarterback.
Sunday's game was just more ammunition for those who believe that Manning is one of the NFL's elite quarterbacks.
