In light of Thursday night’s matchup, here are the five best Eli Manning performances anytime his New York Giants took on the Philadelphia Eagles.
In his storied 15-year career, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has obviously faced the division rival-Philadelphia Eagles more than enough times. Through good games and bad, Eli has seen it all with this NFC East battle.
Therefore, in light of their matchup this Thursday night, here are five of Manning’s best performances vs Philadelphia:
5. 2009 Week 14 45-38 Loss
Manning and Big Blue dominated the air attack all night long. The Giants quarterback finished with 391 yards on 27-28 passing. He also had thrown for three touchdown passes and zero interceptions that game as well. Known for throwing many interceptions throughout his long career, Eli was more than careful with the ball and read the Philadelphia secondary perfectly all game.
However, the Giants defense was horrific that year. Led by former defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan, the Giants defense was toyed by Vick and the Eagles offense all game. Thus, they allowed 45 points in their own stadium. Any team that puts up 38 points should be able to win the football game. However, that just wasn’t the case with the G-Men here.
