Giants Rewind Tomorrow Night at 7pm on MSG PLUS with Carl Banks & Bob Papa



We’ve got an all-new episode of “Giants Rewind” at 7:00 p.m. with Carl Banks and Bob Papa. Every Wednesday the duo looks back at the previous week’s game and dissects the team’s play. This week they will examine the Giants’ 31-27 comeback victory over the Arizona Cardinals, including Eli’s extraordinary fourth quarter performance.

Here are some of Banks’ thoughts on the game: “I was confident they would be 3-1 after four weeks, even with the injuries, but they still have some work to do – they need to get the run game tuned up and they need to stop the run a little bit better. But the pass offense has been very good and will always keep them in a game. Last week we saw vintage Eli with the late-game heroics.”

Looking ahead Sunday’s 1:00 p.m. game against the Seahawks, Banks suggests paying close attention to Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch: “The Giants can’t take Seattle for granted this week. Marshawn Lynch is a good running back and the Giants have to do a better job of stopping the run.” Banks said. 

For more from Banks and Papa on the win over the Cardinals, tune in tomorrow night and every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. on MSG Plus. And check out “Giants Opening Drive LIVE” every Sunday morning at 10:00am on MSG Network for a live, hour-long preview of that day’s game.

Eli Manning may not be Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers, but NY Giants' quarterback is matching elite QBs

Remember when Eli Manning said he was in Tom Brady's league? Well, through the first four weeks of the season the Giants quarterback is playing like the two-time MVP.
