Giants Vs. Redskins: Eli Manning, Mario Manningham Connect For 92-Yard Scoring Strike

The New York Giants have emphatically re-claimed serious momentum in their quest for the NFL playoffs.

Holding a slim lead over the Washington Redskins in the third quarter, Eli Manning found Mario Manningham for a thrilling 92-yard scoring strike, extending New York's lead to 17-7 with 12:19 remaining in the third quarter.

Manningham absolutely torched Pro Bowl cornerback DeAngelo Hall on the play, running by Hall as if the he were standing still. The 92-yard strike is simultaneously the longest play of Manningham's career, and the longest passing play of Manning's slightly longer career.

The Giants, sitting at 9-6, need a win and a Green Bay Packers loss to secure a spot in the NFL playoffs. At time of publishing, the Packers trail the Chicago Bears 3-0 in the third quarter at Lambeau Field, with the Bears threatening to add to their lead.

The Manning-to-Manningham touchdown deals a serious blow to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' playoff hopes. The 10-6 Bucs need losses from both the Giants and Packers to sneak into the NFL playoffs.
