The New York Giants have decided to no longer delay the inevitable.
After a 0-2 start to the season and pressure due to a good showing from top pick Daniel Jones in preseason, the New York Giants are benching longtime QB Eli Manning in favor for the rookie.

The Giants received heavy criticism for drafting Jones with the No. 6 pick in a QB rich draft last April, but most Giants fans have been clamoring for the move after seeing flashes from Jones prior to the season.
Though it’s not likely the Giants will trade Manning, the possibility is there with the shortage of quarterbacks due to a plethora of injuries just two weeks into the new season.
Eli’s career record with the Giants stands at 116-116 and gets paid $17 million for two weeks of work.
