Late Manning TD Pass Stuns Patriots

Where have we seen this one before? OK, not as dramatic as winning Super Bowl XLII, but an incredible late-game performance from Eli Manning once again.

Eli Manning did it to the Patriots again.

A 1-yard touchdown pass to Jake Ballard with 15 seconds left lifted the Giants to a 24-20 victory in Foxborough, Mass., Sunday with a late rally that was reminiscent of the Super Bowl XLII victory by the Giants.

The Patriots had seemed to take control of the game on Tom Brady’s touchdown throw to Rob Gronkowski, meaning the Giants (6-2) had to come from behind yet again. They did — thanks to Manning, who was spectacular once more in the fourth quarter.

Manning finished 20 of 39 for 250 yards. And the Giants survived against Brady, who threw for 334 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He did have two interceptions, however.
