5. Protect Eli Manning
Quarterback Eli Manning has been sacked (27) one more time than he has thrown a touchdown pass (26) through 14 games. This is simply unacceptable. The most frustrating part is that Ben McAdoo’s offense relies on quick passes with quick releases. This puts less pressure on the offensive line and they are still struggling to protect Manning.
The offensive line is still very much a work in progress. If the Giants want to win this is one of their biggest problems to address. The more time Manning gets to execute plays gives the Giants a much higher percentage to leave games victorious.
