NEW YORK (WFAN) — Eli Manning and Damon “Snacks” Harrison appeared separately as guests on Mike Francesa’s show Monday, talking about the Giants’ thrilling 27-23 victory over the Baltimore Ravens a day earlier.
Manning said converting three fourth downs in the game was crucial.
“Obviously, Odell’s was fourth-and-1 in the fourth quarter — if you don’t get it, game over. Not only do we get it, he breaks it for a 66-yard touchdown,” the quarterback said of Odell Beckham Jr.’s game-winning score. “Guys stepped up and made some big-time plays in critical moments, and that’s what we got to do in this league.
“I thought Coach (Ben) McAdoo did a great job of calling that game, kind of figuring out what we need to do, saying we needed to play faster and get that tempo going, and it really helped,” Manning added.
Harrison discussed the challenge of the Giants staying focused after a questionable pass interference call against Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie that extended a late-fourth-quarter Ravens drive in Giants territory.
“It’s very emotional,” he said. “The stadium is reacting, all the guys on the field. You’re fighting so hard to get off the field and to help the team get a win, and to have something like that happen.
“But the game goes on. The clock doesn’t stop. There’s no timeouts being called. You have to get back down there and make another stop. So we have to get over it pretty quick.”
