New England Patriots

By Matt McCarthy,

It appears to be the end of an era Meadowlands.

The New York Giants announced Tuesday that quarterback Eli Manning has been benched in favor of rookie first round draft pick Daniel Jones. Manning had been the starter in New York for nearly 15 years.

This now means that Jones could get the nod in Week 6 when the Patriots host the Giants.

Manning’s contract with the Giants comes to a conclusion at the end of the 2019 season. He is set to make $17 million this year.

Manning amassed a 116-116 record over 232 starts for the Giants. He won two Super Bowls, beating the Patriots is Super Bowl XLII and XLVI.
