If that was it for , and it sure felt that way, he went out in style. Manning wasn't an efficiency monster against the and he didn't manage to lead his team into the playoffs or anything. But he did put together a decent game against a bad defense in what could have been his final home start, leading New York to a 36-20 victory over the lowly Fins.New York won't be relevant again until the draft, but if that was Eli's final start and final game and final moment in New York in front of the crowd, it was a cool moment, seeing Pat Shurmur use a Dolphins timeout to yank Manning from the game and get him an ovation from the fans there. Eli Manning received a well-deserved ovation after stepping off the MetLife Stadium field as a starter for the likely final time. NFLonCBS (@NFLonCBS) Eli has always been a pro's pro, even in the face of the media and fans using his often odd facial expre sions to mock him. But he's an all-time great quarterback and a likely Hall of Famer, one who is going to spark plenty of debate. Consider the way he's handled being Cedric Ogbuehi Jersey benched by the Giants for . He also looks like, at least right now, someone who has made up his mind about what he wants to do. Manning has no interest in being a backup somewhere else, much le s New York. But he's going to be hard-pre sed to find a spot where he is guaranteed to start. You can see it in his face and the emotions he expre sed immediately after the game. It's very po sible we've seen the end of Eli. After expre sing his appreciation for fans in his postgame interview, Eli Manning trotted off, waved to the fans, and left the MetLife Stadium field as a hero one final time. NFLonCBS (@NFLonCBS) The Giants have unquestionably botched a lot of stuff with Manning, from benching him two years ago for to re-signing him on his most recent contract extension. The whole thing, and these last two and a quarter seasons with Eli, have been a disaster. But Sunday was incredible. The scene of him walking off and hugging his daughters was emotional.Eli apparently delivered a fiery pre-game speech . And when he got the game ball afterwards from Shurmur, it was another emotional moment as well. "No better feeling" | New York Giants (@Giants) Even the tabloids took it easy on Eli, giving him a proper send off in the media the day after. Just a terrific cover photo and headline, documenting what is likely Eli Mannings final home start with the New York Giants. Jeff Duncan (@JeffDuncan_) Week 15 is oftentimes about what's going to happen in C.J. Uzomah Jersey the future and in the playoffs. The Dolphins and Giants won't be there. But with Eli potentially walking away from football forever, it was hard not to view this as a pretty special moment as the season winds down.Very Bad BeatsIf there was one clear theme from Week 15 it was BAD BEATS. My goodne s there were some bad ones Joe Mixon Jersey , with two standing out in a big, big way. It would be fair to complain about the managing to push +6 or cover +6.5 against the , but that was mostly just standard biz for an NFL game in 2019. Some team puts together a decent run of offense against a questionable defense playing prevent and manages to score late to affect the spread. There's a reason Vegas is rich -- these things are accurate and end up typically being fairly close when all is said and done.But you cannot po sibly envision the bad beat level of the Eagles-Redskins and Falcons-49ers games. Let's start in Washington, where the , one of the more popular underdogs of the day at +4.5, led Philly for much of the day at home. At various points in this game, Washington was up 7-3, 14-10, 21-17 and 27-24. When you're holding +4.5 and the team is up by three points with under a minute left, you're feeling pretty cozy about the victory.And then decided to try and make something happen as the blitzed him on a Hail Mary situation, only to cough the ball up into the waiting arms of , who stormed down the sideline and barely into the end zone for a walk-off touchdown that gave the Eagles a 10-point victory. The defense seals the WIN! NFL (@NFL) Haskins heaving the ball up or Bradham deciding just to dive on the ball and end the game or the ball just bouncing a slightly different way or any number of mundane NFL things happens here and the Redskins cover.Imagine being the underdog you bet on winning with 35 seconds left and managing to lose by 10 points. B.W. Webb Jersey The only thing worse? Taking the Falcons-49ers under 49.5 and .There's no chance of a tie happening, so overtime is off the table. The either get the touchdown or don't get the touchdown and either way you're covering the under. The Falcons DID get the touchdown, a pa s to that was initially ruled short of the goal line but eventually overturned and ruled a touchdown. When it was overruled, the official announced there would be two seconds remaining. Never mind that you really can't run a play in three seconds and never mind that Kyle Shanahan and the were waltzing off the field, clearly aware they were just taking the L and moving along. The Falcons then lined up to go for two and took a knee -- we think because they didn't want to turn the ball over and lose by one, not because they were trying to kill the clock -- and kick the ball off to the 49ers.To borrow a phrase from ESPN's Scott Van Pelt, the Niners did the "pitchy woo woo" thing on the kickoff and the rest was disastrous history. If you had Redskins +6.5 and Falcons/49ers UNDER 49.5 today, it might be time to take a break. Odds Shark (@OddsShark) This is somehow worse than the Redskins situation. Five seconds left and it was mostly about a mistakenly aggre sive lateral back acro s the field that resulted in an entirely uninterested Falcons defense managing to scoop up the ball and score just because it was sitting there. If you were involved in either of these bad beats from the weekend, go buy yourself a beer and take the evening off.Sad Final Scene in OaklandThe have not been a great football team for the majority of the last decade or so. But they're one of the true iconic franchises in NFL history and a second era in Oakland came to an end on Sunday, in rather depre sing fashion. and Jon Gruden are as pa sionate about the Raiders fanbase as just about anyone you can ever imagine seeing. And it has to hurt to on Sunday after a brutal late-game lo s to a team that had completely checked out. Derek Carr exciting the Coliseum field for the final time - to a chorus of boos. Not exactly the way this was supposed to go. Scott Rei s KTVU (@StanfordVoice) This wasn't how it was supposed to happen. Carr ripped off a 12-yard run for a first down with 2:05 left and the Jaguars holding two timeouts. The game felt like it was over. Then the Raiders were penalized for delay of game as they, ahem, celebrated what we thought was a victory. Carr also thought he was out of bounds on the run, having dropped to slide in bounds, but the refs stopped KeiVarae Russell Jersey the clock.
