Eli still throwing in second half

Every situation is a passing situation to the Manning brothers. And as fantasy enthusiasts, you have to appreciate that.

Because honestly, everybody holding Giants WRs Hakeem Nicks and Steve Smith are dreading the second half with the Giants holding a 35-point lead. But Giants QB Eli Manning was still threw the ball in the opening drives of the second half.

The Giants threw twice on the opening drive of the first half. And then he missed Nicks before going after Smith on third down after RB Brandon Jacobs got the Giants deep into Seahawks’ territory on the second drive. Both passes fell incomplete.

Hey, at least Manning was trying to get us some points there.

The interesting part was that Ahmad Bradshaw was on the field for those plays in red zone. Almost a reverse of the norm, as Jacobs broke a long run into the red zone before going to Bradshaw. Even though it should be noted that the Giants gave up on the run rather quickly.

UPDATE: Nicks just topped 100 yards for the day.
