The New York Giants will be playing in the Super Bowl next week, but it wasn't because they kept their quarterback healthy in the NFC Championship game. Eli Manning was sacked six times and hit on a couple of other occasions by the San Francisco 49ers, but the veteran quarterback is apparently not feeling any ill-effects heading into his match-up with the New England Patriots.
"I feel good," Manning said. "I got a good workout in. (I) will be ready to go once we start practice and (I am) excited about our opportunities."
It'll be up to Manning's offensive linemen to give him opportunities by keeping him on his feet, but the Super Bowl should be exciting if both teams enter as healthy as they sound this week.
