Eli Manning has had a season to forget.
He's thrown 20 interceptions to only 16 touchdowns, and his poor play is a big reason why the 5-8 Giants find themselves eliminated from playoff contention with three games still to play.
On Sunday, the Giants welcome in the 11-2 Seahawks and their "Legion of Boom" secondary, led by cornerback Richard Sherman. He is surely salivating over Manning's hot-potato routine with the football.
Manning told Conor Orr of The Star-Ledger, "He (Sherman) plays the ball very well in the air and on the go routes. He’s a good player, but I think we’ll have some routes and some different things to try to take advantage of his style of play."
You know what else Sherman does well, Eli? Dominate opposing receivers. Intercept the football. Make quarterbacks who are careless with the ball look silly.
Sherman will intercept a Manning pass and take it to the house as Seattle crushes New York and moves closer to securing home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.
And if the Seahawks do claim home-field advantage, this won't be the last game they play at MetLife Stadium this season.
