Eli Manning, Giants struggling early against Falcons

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Eli Manning has thrown two early interceptions that have helped the Falcons take a 17-0 lead.

Eli Manning and the Giants have struggled badly early in Atlanta against the Falcons as they have fallen behind by a score of 17-0 early in the second quarter. This is the third time that the Giants have found themselves down by at least 14 points this early in a game this season and the only game they came back to win was against the Cleveland Browns in Week 5.

Manning has thrown two early interceptions, which the Falcons capitalized on, scoring 10 points. If things continue to go this way for the Giants today, not only would it mark the first time that the Falcons would beat the Giants since the 2004 season (the Giants have won four straight), which was Manning's rookie year, but it would put the Redskins and Cowboys in much better position when it comes to getting into the playoffs should they win their games today.

If the Giants want to come back and at least make this a game, they need to start the comeback now before things get too far out of hand, as if they're not already.
