Eli Manning named NFC Offensive Player of the Week
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning was at his absolute best in the Giants' Week 5 30-27 win over the San Francisco 49ers and the NFL decided to recognize him for his production. Manning was named the Week 5 NFC Offensive Player of the Week.
Manning finished the game having completed 41 of 54 passes for 441 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. With 1:45 remaining, Manning led a game-winning 82-yard touchdown drive that he capped off with a 12-yard touchdown pass to tight end Larry Donnell.
Manning's 41 completions set a Giants franchise record for the most in any regular season game. He also broke an even more important record in Week 5 by locking in his 102nd career win -- the most of any quarterback in franchise history.
With 10 touchdowns and just two interceptions on the season, Manning is playing arguably the best football of his career. He will look to keep the momentum going in a difficult road matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.
