There's no question that Giants quarterback Eli Manning took a beating and made big plays in Sunday's win, but did the Giants quarterback play that well? According to Total QBR, the answer is no.
As you can read about here, the Giants quarterback had a QBR of 30.9, which would be his fifth-worst game of the season. In fact, QBR had him barely above San Francisco's Alex Smith, who registered a 30.5 for the game.
Total QBR rates quarterbacks from 0-100 with 50 being an average game. Manning lost points for being sacked six times, struggling on third downs in the second half and not being part of the four plays that helped the Giants' win probability the most, among other reasons.
