If you’ve been living under a rock than you are probably unaware that the New York Giants are struggling. They’re 0-5 and quarterback Eli Manning has been a bit of a turnover machine. On the season, Manning is completing 53.7% of his passes for 1,482 yards 8 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

And he has only gotten worse with each game.

Game 1: 64.3% completions, 450 yards, 4 TDs and 3 INTs

Game 2: 57.1% completions, 362 yards, 1 TD and 4 INTs

Game 3: 52.3% completions, 119 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT

Game 4: 48.6% completions, 217 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT

Game 5: 46.2% completions, 334 yards and 2 TDs and 3 INTs

For the most part, his interceptions have outnumbered his touchdowns. It is his completion percentage that is the real concern, it is getting worse ever game he plays.  The Giants play the Chicago Bears on Thursday, ESPN ranks their pass defense 24th in the league with an average of 278.4 yards per game.

The Bears can get turnovers though. Cornerback Charles Tillman and safety Major Wright are tied for fifth in the league with 2 interceptions so far this season. The defense as a whole has 6 interceptions on the year.
