The Jersey Report: Eli Behind Only Luck and RG3


This just in from our friends at “The Jersey Report”

 

I wanted to reach out with some exciting news ahead of tonight’s MNF showdown between Eli Manning’s division-leading Giants and RG3’s surging Redskins, and –  Robert Griffin III has jumped to the top spot in jersey sales across more than 500 DICK’S Sporting Goods stores in the country, based on numbers gathered from the DICK’S Sporting Goods Jersey Report. Not one to take a backseat to any QB, Eli also made a jump this weekend, passing his brother Peyton to stake claim to the #3 spot, trailing only RG3 and Andrew Luck.

 

Surprising? Unquestionably. Impossible to predict? Not quite. “The Jersey Report”, which is a first-of-its-kind experience – a dynamic ranking system that tracks sales of pro football jerseys across more than 500 DICK’S Sporting Goods locations nationwide, numbers have borne out consistently all season that jersey sales spike in the days leading up to game day, as fans clamor to get the gear of their favorite players for the big event. Updated daily throughout the football season, the Report is the only destination that provides fans with a comprehensive breakdown of how the sales of their favorite players’ jerseys are rising, falling and stacking up against the competition.

 

With their playoff hopes on the line for Washington, and an opportunity to put a nail in their coffin for New York, tonight’s game might just decide the fate of these two NFC East foes. Not even stellar performances by Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning on Sunday could stem the momentum of these two big-time quarterbacks as they prepare to face off tonight. So who will win? It’s hard to say, but one thing is for sure – fans of both teams will be donning their QB’s jerseys as they get settled in for a pivotal game on one of the biggest stages in sports.
