I appreciate them always and all my teammates coming up to me. It’s a special day, a special win and one I’ll remember.””No better feeling”#GiantsPride | @Pepsi— New York Giants (@Giants) December 15, 2019A two-time Super Bowl winner and MVP, Manning had his family in attendance. “It’s special. I think it’s special that my kids get to come and watch some games,” he said.”I don’t remember my dad (Archie) playing at all. He retired when I was 4 years old. My brothers (Peyton and Cooper) have memories. They always kind of talked about it, in the locker room, around games, and I don’t remember. “So, I try to bring my kids around as much as possible, bring them to some games. I know my youngest son won’t remember any of it, but we’ll at least have a picture to show him one day.”What a moment for Eli #GiantsPride | #MIAvsNYG— New York Giants (@Giants) December 15, 2019″I tried not to get too emotional just because we still have a couple football games left,” Manning continued. “I know I’ll still be back in the stadium (Dec. 29 vs. the Philadelphia Eagles). I don’t know if I’ll play that day, but I know I’ll get to run out one more time at least.”But still excited. Excited for the win and an honor if it is the last one playing here where I’m starting and getting a win. Try to enjoy it and take it in for a moment.” New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning does not know what the future holds following a “special” win over the Miami Dolphins.Manning, 38, threw a pair of touchdown passes as the Giants beat the Dolphins 36-20 at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.last_img
