The Giants announced that they have signed QB Eli Manning to a new contract extension


Manning is beginning his 12th season as the Giants’ starting quarterback. He led the Giants to victories in Super Bowls XLII and XLVI, and was selected the most valuable player in both games. Manning is also a three-time Pro Bowl selection, most recently in 2012.

Manning is the Giants’ career leader in pass attempts (5,609), completions (2,929), passing yards (39,755), touchdown passes (259) and interceptions (185). His 63.1 completion percentage in 2014 raised his career percentage to 58.98, lifting him over Kerry Collins (58.51) and into first place on the Giants’ all-time list among quarterbacks with at least 1,000 attempts.

Manning is the first Giants quarterback to throw for more than 3,000 yards in 10 consecutive seasons, the first to have three 4,000-yard seasons (2009-11) and the first to throw at least 20 touchdown passes eight years in a row (2005-12).

He has started 167 consecutive regular-season games, the third-longest streak by a quarterback in NFL history, and the longest active streak among all NFL players, regardless of position.

Manning’s record as a starter is 91-76 (.545) in the regular season and 8-3 (.727) in the postseason. The 91 victories are the second-most by a quarterback in Giants history; Phil Simms won 95 games from 1979-93.
