After interceptions on their first two drives – one of which was a pick-six – the Giants were still somehow in it at the end of the game in Chicago. But there was Eli to bookend the evening with a bad pick to close out the evening. On a drive to take the lead in the waning minutes of the 4th quarter, Eli nearly threw an interception on one pass before he had a throw go off the fingertips of a leaping Brandon Myers into the hands of Tim Jennings. Brad Nessler declaimed that it wasn’t Eli’s fault as soon as it happened because that’s a reflexive statement from an announcer. After the commercial break, he walked that statement back.
Can’t blame it on a lack of running game tonight. Brandon Jacobs went over 100 yards. This one was on Eli.
