[UPDATE 7:03 p.m. ET: Perhaps the Eli Manning interception-less practices streak lives! Video from the Giants practice shows that Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie didn't secure the catch when he hit the ground. So, via a technicality and the wonder of NFL catch/no-catch rules, the streak apparently lives. It is now at six.]



Here are a few notes from New York Giants practice Thursday, Day 6 of training camp. Otherwise known as the day Eli Manning's consecutive interception-less days streak died.

Eli Manning finally intercepted

Quarterback Eli Manning threw his first interception of training camp on Thursday, a deep ball picked off by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Maybe head coach Tom Coughlin and quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan jinxed him with their praise.

Here is what the pick looked like:

Sounds like Manning pretty much shrugged off the pick.

On offensive offensive line

Manning's interception wasn't helped by the fact that he was running away from massive defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis, who had burst through the sieve passing for a Giants offensive line on Thursday. The Giants were without center Weston Richburg (knee tendinitis), left tackle Ereck Flowers (hip flexor), right guard Geoff Schwartz (foot) and original starting left tackle Will Beatty (torn pectoral).

The first-team offensive line on Thursday was as follows: LT Justin Pugh, LG Adam Gettis, C Dallas Reynolds, RG John Jerry, RT Marshall Newhouse. Yikes!!!

Victor Cruz, Odell Beckham highlights
