    Giants QB Eli Manning connects on two TD passes in Week 3 win

    Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 23 of 32 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 32-21 win over the Redskins. Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham combined for a 14-195-2 receiving line on 16 targets, including Randle's 41-yard touchdown on a tipped ball. Manning didn't make any bad mistakes but also didn't have many great throws -- a trade-off the Giants were happy to take after jumping out to an early lead. Beckham has unsurprisingly been Manning's only reliable target so far, but Victor Cruz (calf) may be ready for Week 4 in Buffalo.

    Giants QB Eli Manning throws two TDs in loss to Falcons

    Giants quarterback Eli Manning was 27 of 40 for 292 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's game against the Falcons. He added 23 yards on two carries and lost a fumble in the 24-20 loss. The 34-year-old bounced back Sunday after a less-than-stellar season debut, despite the fact that Odell Beckham was the only wideout to top 17 yards receiving. Manning utilized running back Shane Vereen to the tune of eight completions for 76 yards, and will likely continue to do so until another receiver steps up. Manning and the Giants will face the Redskins at home in Week 3.

    Giants LT Ereck Flowers is trying to get ready for Week 2

    Giants left tackle Ereck Flowers, who hurt his ankle Sunday against the Cowboys, was able to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday. Although, his availability for Week 2 against the Falcons is still to be determined. "It was just like any other injury," Flowers said, per NJ.com. "You've got to play through it and get through it. "I guess we'll see. In my head, I'm looking to play." With Will Beatty on the PUP list, John Jerry would likely be tasked with protecting quarterback Eli Manning's blindside Sunday, if Flowers can't play.

    Giants' Coughlin says Eli Manning is in a 'great frame of mind'

    The 2014 season was not a banner year for the Giants, who finished 6-10 and missed the playoffs for a third straight season. Although, veteran quarterback Eli Manning did have a strong season from a statistical standpoint. He completed a career-best 63.1 percent of his passes for 4,410 yards and 30 touchdowns. The yardage and passing touchdown total were the second-best marks of his career. Manning is entering his 12th year in the NFL, and coach Tom Coughlin is expecting another strong performance from his veteran quarterback in 2015. "I think he's prepared to be better than he's ever been, to be honest with you," Coughlin said, per ESPN.com. "I thought last year, his improvement was outstanding. His conditioning, his offseason work ... even right now, his recovery cycle work and flexibility is better than I've ever seen it. Again, he's young, he's obviously very driven, and he's in a great frame of mind."

    Giants yet to initiate contract talks with QB Eli Manning

    Giants quarterback Eli Manning has won two Super Bowls. But he has apparently not earned the trust of his team to the point in which it has initiated talks to extend his contract. "No discussions yet," he told the New York Daily News. "I don't know if there will be or not." That means 2015 could be his last season with the Giants, who could be waiting to see if he picks up where he left off from a strong 2014 before offering the 34 year old a new deal. Manning completed a career-high 63.1 percent of his passes. His 4,410 yards passing topped every season since 2011 and 30 touchdowns were his most since 2010. "I think you're always proving yourself in this league," Manning said. "It's always kind of what have you done lately and you got to prove that you can still play at a high level." Manning has proven to be durable as well as productive. He has started 167 straight games, the longest current streak for a quarterback in the NFL and third-longest in league history.

    Giants QB Eli Manning is expecting best pro season next year

    Giants quarterback Eli Manning is an accomplished 11-year veteran. There isn't much for the two-time Super Bowl MVP to prove, except that he will have his best season ever as a pro next year, according to NFL.com. "I am," Manning said when asked if he was expecting his best season ever. "I like the guys we have in the locker room, I like our talent, I like how everybody's approaching this season, I'm looking forward to it." Manning will certainly have the weapons at his disposal for a fantastic season. Wide receiver Odell Beckham, the 2014 Offensive Rookie of the Year, is as talented a player there is. A healthy Victor Cruz will scare opposing defenses. And Rueben Randle has improved every season in the league. "I think he can have a dominant season," Cruz said. "I think that with the type of offense we have, and the way that we all can click come September and all that good stuff, I think it's gonna make for a very, very dominant type of offense where we could go and put up 28, 35 points at a clip, and really do some fun things this year." Manning will have to try to eclipse last season's performance, when he threw for 4,410 yards and 30 touchdowns.
