Eli Manning is fumbling footballs again - the NFL must be (nearly) back

The first pre-season game took place last night in Ohio.

ELI MANNING ONLY touched the ball seven times in the first pre-season game of the fledgling NFL campaign but he still managed to fumble the football despite such limited opportunities.

Look away Giants fans:

For the record, the G-Men still won the game 17-14 thanks to this impressive 73-yard pass from Ryan Nassib to Corey Washington:
