Linebacker Mychal Kendricks said the team wants to put the Packers loss behind them and is glad the next game is in front of the friendly confines of Lincoln Financial field.

But history has shown Manning and the Giants usually respond well after his big-interception games. In the follow-up contests after his first 18 three-pick outings, Manning threw no interceptions eight times, one interception six times and two picks twice. Only twice did he follow a three-interception game with another (one was a four-pick game). Manning threw five interceptions last Dec. 15 vs. Seattle and just one the following week in Detroit.

Eli Manning threw five interceptions in Big Blue’s 16-10 to the San Francisco 49ers. But what Tom Coughlin and Manning focused their attention on was the four-down sequence from San Francisco’s four-yard line late in the fourth quarter. The Giants trailed by six points when Odell Beckham Jr.’s acrobatic catch with 5:04 left put them in a position to pull out the game.
