Remarkably, Eli doesn't choke; Giants advance

Big Blue didn't advanced in the NFC Playoff picture today, by topping the Tampa Bay Bucs, 24-14. QB Eli Manning had a landmark day, looking every bit the investment the New York Football Giants put into Peyton's little brother.

WR Armani Toomer played a key role today, but really everyone stood up, which is notable. In general, the Giants have been a rubber stamp win, in my opinion, during the post season. What these guys have done is shut up detractors, like myself, but next week brings the vaunted Dallas Cowboys and yet another opportunity for Big Blue to disappoint.

They won today, against a strong opponent. The Bucs' offensive played a little too conservative until the closing minutes of the 4th Quarter, which is probably something that "America's Team" shouldn't do next week if they plan to advance.
