Tracy Porter gives Eli the same treatment he gave Peyton

Eli Manning AP

The Saints put the icing on the cake of their Super Bowl XLIV victory when cornerback Tracy Porter picked off Peyton Manning and went 74 yards for a touchdown.

Sunday’s game at the Meadowlands between the Giants and Raiders doesn’t have as much at stake (and is being played by two far inferior teams), but Porter still found a way to make life miserable for the Manning family. Porter jumped a pass intended for Victory Cruz and returned it 47 yards for a touchdown to give the Raiders a 17-14 lead with 1:18 to play in the first half. It’s Manning’s 16th interception of the season, but his first since Week Six.

A third sack of Manning helped kill the Giants’ ensuing offensive drive and allowed the Raiders to take their lead into the half. It’s been a sloppy game on both sides with special teams miscues accounting for points on both sides and the Raiders finding their old penalty bug. Both teams have matched decent running attacks with passing games that have done more harm than good for the most part. Manning is 8-of-13 for 90 yards and Terrelle Pryor is 3-of-12 for 27 yards in a performance that’s seen him fail to get the ball out quickly enough time and again.

Manning’s interception was the Giants’ third turnover of the game already, a reminder that the last two wins haven’t moved the Giants too far past their six-game losing streak.

    Terrible Pryor to the rescue!

    Man, I hope he’s that crap teams franchise QB for years to come.

    Eli is an awful QB. Please stop saying he’s elite cause he isn’t. Stop using excuses. They had a 100 yard rusher and he still sucks.

    Pryor played well the first 4 weeks and since then defense coordinators have figured out how to expose his weaknesses. This team has enough talent to be above .500 at this point in the season and Pryor for the most part has failed them. This team needs a QB that will make smart decisions and progress through his reads across the entire field and not just half of it.

    The Raiders are terrible. The play calling was terrible. Pryor was terrible. The offense was terrible except for Jennings. I sat and watched the plays from my home computer and called almost every play the Giants were going to run and who was getting the ball. Why can’t the DC see this? Why and where is leadership on the defense? Geshhhhhhhhhhh…………..I really am a Raider fan and have been for many years, but this play calling and lack of a decent QB is really bad. Pryor may be a good backup but I really don’t see him as a starting QB. I’ll probably get a lot of thumbs down, but I’m sick of seeing stupid plays. I’ve been patient enough. If they can’t get a team together next year with the huge salary cap left over money, then Oakland doesn’t deserved a football team and Mark needs to sell it to someone who will take an interest and find a winner.

    As a Saints fan, I will never forget Porter and his pick 6 in the superbowl

    Your “team” is almost completely void of talent on both sides of the ball.

    You’re still looking at a complete rebuild that, with who you have at the helm, may take a full decade to accomplish. If you ever get to that point, not one single player on the current roster will still be with the team.

    It’s just that bad. You’re still a bottom 3 team in the league right now.

    The expert speaks. Your “team” has finished in the basement four out of the past five seasons, and hasn’t won a playoff game since 1994. With Smith at QB, that streak will extend to 20 straight seasons.
