Eli Manning Vs. Joe Flacco: Saturday’s Preseason ActionAugust 28th, 2010 - 7:38 pm ICT by GD

Aug 28, (THAINDIAN NEWS) With New York Giants taking on the Baltimore Ravens today, Americans all over are hoping to see some bone crunching football action in the eventful preseason. Coming into the game with an equal share of wins and losses in the preseason, the New York Giants will have a lot to play for as they take on the so far undefeated Baltimore Ravens. Star quarterback Eli Manning will return to the New York Giants side and that could be one of the biggest factors in the game considering their miserable performance in the previous clash.
For the Baltimore Giants, the momentum of the side is very high after the 23-3 win over the Washington Redskins. With an extremely strong defense display in the last game, the only concern for the Baltimore Ravens could be the passing game which seemed to struggle slightly in the last game. Joe Flacco did manage to throw a few good passes but most of them failed to produce touchdowns. He is expected to play in the first half as well as into the second half for the Baltimore Giants.
Eli Manning suffered a deep gash in his head in the first game that made him miss the second clash against Washington Redskins, though his entry into the side gives the New York Giants some edge, it is unlikely that the momentum of the Baltimore Ravens can be hindered at this point in the preseason, especially with the likes of Joe Flacco in the side. The NFL odds are also inclined towards the Baltimore Ravens at -4.
