Sunday's performance by New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning felt like a decidedly middle of the road, ho-hum, effort. Nothing great, but nothing horrible either.
ESPN's new Quarterback Rating agrees. On a QBR scale of 0-100, on which 50 is average, Manning's 18-for-32, 268-yard, one interception effort earned a 53.6. That placed Manning 16th out of the 33 quarterbacks who were graded.
