The Weekly Recap


Boss of the week:


Eli Manning


After a poor first half including three interceptions against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the defending Super Bowl MVP regrouped from a 14-point deficit to lead the Giants to a 41-34 victory, despite a slew of injuries. For the Giants to begin the season 0-2 at home, facing the NFL’s hardest schedule would have made the defending champion’s repeat aspirations even more difficult than it should have been.

But Manning showed why he refers to himself as an elite quarterback with yet another fourth quarter comeback. He exemplifies the term grace under pressure. On Sunday, he threw for 510 yards, a career high, and three touchdowns.



Quote of the Week:


“This is the weakest roster we’ve ever had in September in the history of baseball.”


-Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine



Goat of the Week


Stephen Gostkowski

Kicker for the New England Patriots


With an opportunity to win the game for the Patriots, Gostkowski missed a 42-yard field goal attempt with six seconds left in the game. The Patriots lost to the Arizona Cardinals 20-18, making it their first home opener loss in 11 years.
