With rookie quarterback Daniel Jones out with an ankle injury for the second straight week, Eli Manning got the start in what could be his final game for the Giants.
He led the Giants to their first win since Week 4, beating the Miami Dolphins 36-20.
Manning finished the day 20-for-28 passing with 283 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions. He now has 366 career touchdown passes and a 117-117 record as a starter.
He found veteran receiver Golden Tate for a 51-yard touchdown to tie the game at 7-7 with 8:01 remaining in the second quarter. It's the second 50-plus-yard touchdown pass Manning has thrown since returning as the starter... he connected with Darius Slayton for a 55-yard score last week against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Right before halftime, Manning glued his eyes to wide receiver Sterling Shepard -- however, Dolphins linebacker Vince Biegel made the easy interception as Manning threw the ball directly to him.
The Dolphins took advantage of great field positioning, and went up 10-7 after making a field goal. The Giants tried to get some points before the half, but Manning ended up throwing another interception on a deep pass down the sideline.
Manning finished the first half 8-for-14 passing with 116 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions.
On the team's first drive of the second half, Manning connected with Slayton for a 26-yard gain and a couple plays later found the rookie receiver wide open in the back of the endzone for a 5-yard score to give the Giants a 14-10 lead.
After two Saquon Barkley runs, Manning was intercepted by linebacker Jerome Baker on third and short while looking for Cody Latimer running across the field.
The Giants started to pull away towards the end of the third quarter, as cornerback Sam Beal recorded a safety and Barkley ran in for scores on back-to-back drives. Despite not throwing any touchdowns, Manning had a strong second half, completing 12 of 14 passes for 167 yards.
With 1:50 left in the game and the Giants up 36-20, Manning was given a standing ovation by the crowd as backup quarterback Alex Tanney came into the game. It was the perfect gesture by head coach Pat Shurmur, knowing this could be the last time Manning played in front of the home crowd.
