If you watched the game Sunday, you know that New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning was brilliant in the final 5:20 of Sunday's 31-27 come-from-behind victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Manning was seven-for-eight for 126 yards and two TDs in the that stretch, and overall 27-of-40 for 321 yards. Using ESPN's new QBR system, Eli scored a 79.2 -- eighth-best in the league on Sunday.
To be honest, I'm not sure how much better Manning could have played. Aside from the one fumble I don't know how much more he could have done. Using traditional passer ratings, Manning had a 108.4 rating on Sunday.
For the season, Manning is eighth in the league overall with a QBR of 68.9.
Slice it any way you want, since halftime of the St. Louis game game (the second of the season) Manning has been tremendous.
