Giants quarterback Eli Manning isn’t overly concerned about the Week One loss to the Cowboys.
Manning said the Giants have had a good week of work since losing their opener on September 5, and they’re focused on having a much better performance on Sunday against the Buccaneers.
“I think guys did a good job of coming in with the attitude after the game on that Thursday saying we’ve got to play better, but everything that occurred is very correctable and it’s just going to come down to fixing it, making better plays, better decisions during the game,” Manning said. “Guys said, ‘We can fix this. We’ve got to work a little bit better this next week.’ Enjoy the weekend off. Came back to work on Monday. Had a good practice and had another good practice [on Wednesday].”
Manning’s comments echo those of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who insisted that there’s no panic and no freakout for the Packers after their Week One loss. The Giants and the Packers were generally recognized as the two best teams in the NFC before the season, and their quarterbacks haven’t lost confidence after one game.
