ELI MANNING IN WEEK 4
History suggests that quarterback Eli Manning may play one of his best games of the season this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Here’s a look at Manning’s numbers in his eight career Week 4 games compared to his season averages:
*Note: The Giants have had Week 4 byes twice in Manning’s career.
“The Kansas City Chiefs… I’ll tell you exactly what I think. They’re 3-0, as you know. They’re playing very, very well. The difference in their football team…does anybody know what it is? Thirty-seven giveaways last year and zero this year. They’re plus-nine, plus-nine after three games with no giveaways. They are a balanced team offensively. They’ve rushed the ball 90 times and thrown it 105. That’s their objective. The quarterback has made a big difference because he’s their second-leading rusher. They run the option with him. He’ll pull the ball down and bring it out. He does an outstanding job of that. They have a good offensive scheme, which obviously Alex Smith is the driver of that machine. The ball gets distributed around very well and there are a lot of playmakers on this football team. Obviously the running back (Jamaal Charles) is exceptional with 1,500 yards. They do run the ball very, very well. But again I’ll mention their second-leading rusher is the quarterback.” -Coach Tom Coughlin
