Eli Manning's QBR Rating for this week tells a story not really just for Manning, but for the New York Giants offense in Sunday's 36-25 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Manning's QBR for the week was just an 18.0, 23rd in the league out of 26 quarterbacks rated prior to this week's Monday Night Football game.
This despite passing for 420 yards and three touchdowns. His traditional quarterback rating, by the way, was an excellent 91.8 despite the three interceptions he was charged with.
Eli took a big hit this week (-5.1) in 'sack EPA', which gives him negative points for the number of times he was sacked or fumbled. Considering that the pitiful running game and poor pass protection he often got were not his fault, those numbers are on the offensive unit, not Manning himself.
Eli's grade for the season is a 52.2, 17th in the league. That is affected largely by a -13.9 sack EPA, third-worst overall in the league. That tells you what kind of pressure he has been under thanks to the poor play up front.
