Video: Eli Manning Takes Violent Hit

I’m sure everyone has seen this, but check out the video if you haven’t already.

Eli Manning makes an erroneous read on the play and opts to throw a fade to the end zone, but running back Brandon Jacobs still thinks he will be receiving the ball. Jacobs collides with Manning, loosening his chinstrap and jarring the football loose.

As Manning works quickly to recover the ball floating in the air, Calvin Pace violently hits him from his blindside. The blow knocks Manning’s helmet off and sends him into another defender, where a nasty laceration is delivered.

The three-inch cut on Manning’s forehead required twelve stitches to fix, but Manning did not suffer any other injuries.

Fortunately for the Giants, it appears as if Manning will be okay. But the video is much more dramatic; Manning looks like he could have easily suffered a concussion, a larger laceration, or worse.
