In Eli Manning’s 14 seasons with the New York Giants, he’s defeated every NFL team at least once, except the Colts and the Chargers.
With a matchup between the Giants and Colts slated for the 2018 season and the next meeting with Los Angeles not on the schedule until 2021, there’s a good chance the Chargers could end up being the only team undefeated against Manning.
The Giants fell, 27-22, to the Chargers on Sunday. It was the fourth time Manning has faced the Chargers. In losses in 2005, 2009 and 2013, he combined for five touchdowns and two interceptions, but the Giants’ defense has struggled to slow the Chargers.
On Sunday, Elli finished with 225 passing yards, two touchdowns, one pick, and one fumble and he lost four receivers to injury, including Odell Beckham Jr.
It’s an odd statistic that Manning is 0-4 against the team. After all, Manning, the first pick in the 2004 NFL draft, began his time in the NFL by demanding a trade from the Chargers.
He, too, released a statement via the team’s website. He announced his resignation, and accepted full responsibility for his actions, confirming it was him in the video:
I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions. I want to apologize to the organization and my sole focus is on getting the help that I need with the support of my family and medical professionals.
This is the second time the Dolphins have had an offensive line coach exit due to controversy. In 2014, they fired Jim Turner after the Jonathan Martin bullying scandal.
