Eli Manning was horrible in the first half, throwing three picks. In the second half he bloomed, brushed off his shoulders and told the haters to go eff themselves. The Giants scored 25 points in the 4th quarter. First, Eli went deep to Victor Cruz, featuring Salsa.
Then he threw another touchdown to Martellus Bennett to take the lead. The Bucs answered with a bomb of their own to Mike Williams, but Eli went deep again, this time to Hakeem Nicks. That play set up Andre Brown giving himself up at the one-yard-line Ahmad Bradshaw-style before going in on the next play for his first career touchdown.
Eli’s final line? 31-51, 510 yards, 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Then he got shoved and Tom Coughlin and Greg Schiano got into it.
