Excerpt: "In arguably the most thrilling game of the young 2012 NFL season, the New York Giants (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york-giants/) dug themselves out of a huge halftime hole led by Eli Manning (http://www.giants101.com/tag/eli-manning/)and improved to 1-1 with a 41-34 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (http://www.giants101.com/2012/09/16/new-york-giants-defeat-tampa-bay-buccaneers-41-34-in-thriller/). Eli Manning (http://www.giants101.com/tag/eli-manning/) threw for an eye popping 510 yards after throwing three first half interceptions. In classic Eli Manning (http://www.giants101.com/tag/eli-manning/) fashion, he once again shook off a rough start and absolutely dismantled the Tampa Bay secondary in the second half, capping the game with a four play, 80 yard touchdown drive to put the Giants ahead for good.

It's as simple as that. Even after the pick six Eli Manning (http://www.giants101.com/tag/eli-manning/) threw right before the half, there was a sense, a feeling that the game just was not over. Not with Eli Manning (http://www.giants101.com/tag/eli-manning/) at quarterback, not when the Giants are playing. Tom Coughlin has instilled fight to the finish with this football (http://www.giants101.com/tag/football/) team, and you just knew Eli Manning (http://www.giants101.com/tag/eli-manning/) was going to make some kind of run down the stretch. And the run the Giants made overwhelmed Tampa Bay. Good response from the defense, and an even better one by Manning and the Giants passing attack. Also credit Andre Brown (http://www.giants101.com/tag/andre-brown/) who made some big runs to get the Giants offense going in that second half. " Read more...
