It’s a day of milestones for New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.
On the day of his 200th-consecutive start, Manning tossed his 300th career touchdown pass on a 36-yard touchdown pass to rookie Sterling Shepard. Manning is now tied for seventh all-time with Broncos legend John Elway in career passing touchdowns.
With this TD pass, Eli now ranks T-7th all time for career passing TDs with 300.

Manning is 42 touchdowns away from tying Fran Tarkenton for sixth on the all-time list. His milestone might have taken some of the attention away from New York’s general struggles offensively. Manning has thrown for only 107 yards, one touchdown and one interception as the Giants trail 10-7 to the Baltimore Ravens entering halftime.
The Giants have struggled offensively for most of the season. New York entered Sunday averaging 266 passing yards per game and Manning has only six touchdowns on the season after tossing a career-high 35 touchdowns last season.
