The Giants Will Retire QB Eli Manning’s Jersey This Sunday At Halftime

Former New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning had one of those eras that fans will not and cannot forget.

Playing in the NFL for 16 straights and having over 200 consecutive career starts is something that is nearly impossible for many to do, especially an NFL quarterback who played in two different eras of the NFL rules when it comes to contacting the opposing QB.

During his time as a Giant, Manning helped lead the franchise to two Super Bowl championships in the 2007 and 2011 season defeating the Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in both appearances and winning the MVP twice in the process.

Manning will be welcomed to the Giants Ring of Honor and will have his No. 10 jersey retired in a commemorative halftime ceremony during Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

The first 25,000 fans in attendance at the game will also receive a special Eli Manning bobblehead.

The halftime ceremony will also be streamed on Giants.com, the Giants App and GiantsTV.

A Ring of Honor conference was held Thursday in honor of Manning and his time with the franchise.

Averaging a career total of  57,023 passing yards, 366 touchdowns & 244 interceptions with a career average of 60.3 completion percentage. There’s no question this moment for him is beyond deserving.

This is a moment that Giant fans will cherish for the rest of their lives, especially those who are 90s and 2000s babies and grew up in the Eli Manning era.
