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.
By the way, you might get a kick out of this note. New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez scored a pitiful 0.6 QBR Sunday, the worst of any quarterback in the league.
