Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for Eli Manning and the Giants this season, disaster has struck in Chicago.
Manning threw two terrible interceptions in the first five minutes on Thursday night against the Bears, and the second one was returned by Tim Jennings for a 48-yard touchdown that got the Bears off to a 7-0 lead.
The Bears’ lead would be bigger, but after Manning’s first interception, the Bears turned the ball over on downs deep in Giants territory when Brandon Marshall dropped a fourth-down pass.
Manning has thrown at least one interception in every game this season and has now thrown multiple interceptions in four of the Giants’ six games. In the same season that Eli’s big brother Peyton Manning is on pace to break the NFL record for passing yards, passing touchdowns, completion percentage and passer rating, Eli is threatening George Blanda’s 1962 record of 42 interceptions in a season.
