Plenty has already been said about the effort the New York Giants put forth in Week 17 against the New England Patriots, but it's worth taking another look at the play of Giants QB Eli Manning in that game.

For the first time in a long time Manning displayed confidence in his own ability to make plays. He looked like Brett Favre at times, playing as if there was no pressure and he was having fun taking on the best team in the NFL.
