Poll: New York Giants QB Eli Manning is over-rated

As the arguments play out over the veteran New York Giants quarterback, it’s sometimes difficult to separate fact from fiction. For example, according to Pro Football Reference, in 2018, Eli Manning had the highest completion percentage (66 percent) of his career.

For good measure, we also know that Manning threw for more than 4,000 yards (4,299 yards) for the seventh time in his career. Sure, he threw the second lowest number of interceptions in his career (11), but he also had only 21 touchdown passes to his credit.

To put his touchdown pass total in perspective, Manning ranked 17th in the NFL, and he had the same number of touchdown passes as Carson Wentz.
