PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - DECEMBER 09: Quarterback Eli Manning #10 of the New York Giants is tackled by defensive end Josh Sweat #94 of the Philadelphia Eagles during the game at Lincoln Financial Field on December 09, 2019 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Eli Manning Passes Ben Roethlisberger For 7th On TD List, But Giants Lose To Eagles 23-17 In OT [VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS]

Eli Manning earned a big title on Monday night in his return to the New York Giants, but it wasn’t enough, as the team fell to the Eagles 23-17 in overtime in Philadelphia.

Manning threw two touchdown passes to rookie wide receiver Darius Slayton to pass Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethilsberger for seventh on the NFL’s all-time list. The veteran Giants signal-caller passed Roethlisberger after logging his 363rd and 364th career TD passes in the first half.

Passes like this one to Slayton — which put New York up 17-3 just seconds before halftime — prove Manning still has some gas left in the tank:

Despite the two-touchdown lead the Giants held at the half, Carson Wentz helped propel the Eagles to the come-from-behind victory, which Philadelphia secured with a 2-yard touchdown pass from Wentz to Zach Ertz with 5:10 left in overtime. This followed Wentz’ 5-yard throw to Ertz that tied it up at 17 just after the two-minute warning in regulation. Wentz finished with 325 passing yards and two touchdowns.

The heavily struggling Giants (2-11) had been hoping Manning — who finished 15-of-30 for 203 yards on Monday — would help rescue them after rookie QB Daniel Jones was ruled out last week with an ankle sprain. However, the Eagles are now 6-7 and one step closer to securing a playoff spot. Philadelphia holds the same record as the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys.

Giants fans will surely be upset if this turned out to be Manning’s last game. One would have hoped for a better sendoff for the two-time Super Bowl MVP and Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award winner but alas, it seems like Manning’s time with the G-Men is over.
