NFL: New York Giants QB Eli Manning not sure about future after ‘special win’

New York Giants coach Eli Manning doesn’t know what the future holds after a “special” victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Manning, 38, threw a pair of passouts as the Giants beat the Dolphins 36-20 at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

Possibly his last start for the Giants, Manning received a steady attack after leaving the game with less than two minutes left – New York went on to kill nine games lost.

“Obviously, I don’t know what the future is, I don’t know what’s next week, let alone down the road,” said Manning, who was replaced as a freshman by freshman Daniel Jones who started Week 3. Jones gave Manning the last two games due to an ankle sprain.

“Obviously, the support and the fans, their spawning, shout my name from the first moment to the end, I appreciate that, I always appreciate them and all my teammates come to me, it’s a special day, a special victory and a I will remember.”

A two-time Super Bowl winner and MVP, Manning had his family present. “It’s special, I think it’s special that my kids come to watch some games,” he said.

“I don’t remember my dad (Archie) playing at all … He left when I was 4 years old and my brothers (Peyton and Cooper) have memories, they always talked about it, in the closet, around games, and I don’t remember.

“That’s why I’m trying to bring my kids as much as possible, to bring them to some games. I know my youngest son won’t remember anything, but at least we’ll have a picture to show him one day.”

“I tried not to go too emotional just because we still have a couple of football matches,” Manning continued. “I know I’ll be back on the field (December 29 against the Philadelphia Eagles). I don’t know if I’ll play that day, but I know I’ll spend at least one more time.

“However, excited, excited for the win and the honor, if he is the last one to play here, where I start and win, try to enjoy it and get it for a moment.”
