WATCH: Eli Manning tries scrambling, fails miserably and coughs up fumble

The New York Giants, down by 18 points in the third quarter in Dallas, had a chance to cut the lead. Then Eli Manning did something he shouldn’t have done.

Manning was on a designed roll-out to his right. Nobody was open, so he tentatively attempted to scramble. It went…poorly.

The turnover was just a huge gut punch to an offense that desperately needed points to hang around against a Cowboys team that’s been on fire in Week 1.
