However if you are not a sports betting person you can always try your luck at

Elisha Nelson Manning or “Eli” Manning as he is nick named is the star quarterback for the New York Giants. The NY Giants is a professional football team that competes in the National Football League as a member of the NFC, East division. They play all their home games at the MetLife Stadium located in New Jersey. The 35 year old quarterback was drafted as the first overall pick in the 2004 Draft by the San Diego Chargers. He was immediately traded to the NY Giants, a mistake the chargers still talk about behind closed doors. He was traded for two players; such was his worth even before he started his career in the NFL.

Manning has been the quarterback for the Giants ever since, the current being his 13th season on the trot. He holds the Giants record for the most passing yards, completed passes and touchdown passes in a career. He also holds the record of fourth most successful touchdown passes by a quarterback in one season. He has led the Giants to two Super Bowl victories. He was named MVP (most valuable player) in both the Super Bowls, a feat only done by five players in the history of NFL.

He has thrown more than 4900 yards in one season including a Super Bowl win this has never been done by anyone in the history of NFL. The stats keep on rolling telling about the greatness of this player and the value he has for the Giants. One more such stat is that he is one of the four quarterbacks in NFL history with at least 44,000 career yards, 290 touchdowns, four Pro Bowl appearances and two Super Bowl championships.

The Giants are on a 3 game losing streak and Manning has come out saying that he needs to do more if they have to change the record drastically. The first challenge he face for doing so is the Sunday’s game against the Ravens who possess a fearsome pass rush which has promised to make the quarterback’s life miserable. Manning said in an interview “I have to make some more throws [and make] better decisions, [and I] can’t turn the ball over. But we will improve.” For a successful Giants season, turnaround in the fortunes of Manning is absolutely necessary. Will him able to pull it off, only time will tell.
