It was not a lack of preparation and it was not all the handiwork of his offensive line. Eli Manning was sacked six times in Sunday night’s 20-13 loss to the Cowboys and insists everyone had a hand in the protection breakdowns.
“Combination of stuff,’’ Manning said Monday. “There was nothing that we didn’t have an answer for. Enough things might mess up a little bit, it’s a combination of everybody, it’s not just the offensive line. When sacks are happening obviously the offensive line gets blamed most of the time but that’s not necessarily the case. You got running backs, you got quarterbacks, you got receivers, everybody plays a part in that.’’
