New York Giants quarterback, and two-time Super Bowl MVP, Eli Manning had a rough start to the 2013 NFL season, committing a league-high 13 turnovers in the first five games. Well, it seems that nothing has changed. In the Giants’ first two drives against the Chicago Bears, Eli Manning threw for two picks, one of them returned for a 48-yard touchdown.

A very Eli Manning face ensued.

Manning now has 15 turnovers in six games; 14 interceptions and one fumble. Last season, Manning threw 15 picks for the whole season. It’s not looking good for Eli Manning and the Giants.
