Although Eli Manning might have taken a few steps back in the MVP race after the New York Giants' 27-20 Week 10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, Giants fans should still be impressed with Eli Manning's performance.
Despite no running game (once again) and some mistakes on his part, Manning still put his team in a position to at least tie the game late in the fourth quarter. With some decent play-calling and better clock management at the end of the game, the Giants could have gotten another exhilarating win.
The reality is that the Giants didn't win and suffered a tough loss, despite making it deep into Niners territory with a minute to play.
Regardless of that, Manning is showing the NFL that you can't spell "Elite" without the letters E-L-I.
