Fans call for Eli Manning benching after brutal first half

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants’ defense did everything possible to help them win against a first-place Chicago Bears team on Sunday. That included an early pick-six from linebacker Alec Ogletree.

Unfortunately, veteran quarterback Eli Manning was not up to the task. The struggling former Super Bowl winner was absolutely atrocious in the first half against Chicago, completing 7-of-17 passes for 73 yards with zero touchdowns and this horrible interception into the hands of Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller.

Needless to say, football fans and writers the world over were quick to blast Eli for another ugly performance.

In fact, some are calling for Manning to be benched.

Others weren’t as kind.
