While the New York Giants were busy losing their ninth game of the season on Thanksgiving, quarterback Eli Manning notched his 100th career loss.

This marks an NFL record. And while creating records is typically a good thing, this one is not. With the loss, Manning became the first quarterback in NFL history to lose 100 starts for one team, per Elias Sports Bureau (h/t ESPN).
While making history, Manning was simply dreadful on Thursday night playing at the home of the Washington Redskins. He completed just 13-of-27 passes for 113 yards and one interception. This earned him a lowly quarterback rating of 44.2.
Manning’s ill performances so far this season are enough that the Giants really must prepare for life beyond him in 2018 — something they’ve already acknowledged is on the front burner.
Somewhat in Manning’s defense, the Giants are without several key playmakers including Odell Beckham Jr. Sadly, this shows every week as New York fails to put up points.
For now, Manning and the G-Men must attempt to pick themselves up and prepare for a Week 13 road trip to Oakland, Ca.
