Eli Manning’s nightmare of a season has a fitting finish
Eli Manning was in a walking boot and needed crutches after Sunday’s 20-6 win against the Redskins.
Manning threw his league-leading 27th interception and sprained his ankle on the same play in the first half. He never returned to action.
Manning completed 10 of 24 passes for 152 yards including a 24-yard strike to Jerrel Jernigan for a touchdown.
It’s an ugly way to end Manning’s nightmare of a season. Manning posted a career low in touchdowns (17) and his completion percentage (58.3%) and total yards (3,666) were his worst over the last five years.
