All eyes were on Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick in today’s NFC Easy slugfest with the New York Giants, but so far it’s Giants WR Mario Manningham who’s lighting up the box score. He has 84 yards and two touchdowns already, the latter a season high and the former darn near one.
QB Eli Manning threw scores of 33 and 35 yards to Manningham, along with a pair of other completions. Manningham has seven targets already, so it looks like New York’s game plan was to get him heavily involved early, and it’s paying off.
Vick is four of eight with 22 yards and what we’d like to call a rare interception, except that he’s thrown four picks in four straight games after a turnover-free start. He’s also added 14 yards on the ground.
