Giants Now: Eli Manning delivers Super Bowl MVP convertible as part of ALL IN Challenge


Eli Manning delivers Super Bowl MVP convertible as part of the ALL IN Challenge

Earlier in the year, athletes and celebrities across the country donated items and experiences as part of the ALL IN Challenge, an effort to raise money in order to feed those in need.

As it states on the ALL IN Challenge website, "The ALL IN Challenge aims to be the world's largest digital fundraiser in history by raising tens of millions of dollars to feed those in need. Food insecurity is a mounting issue but never more important than during COVID-19 and the unprecedented shortage of food resources our nation is facing. Among those most in need: students who rely on currently closed schools for several of their meals each week; the newly unemployed who are facing uncertain circumstances; and a vulnerable elderly population sequestered in their homes without access to food."

Legendary Giants quarterback Eli Manning got involved in the challenge when he decided to offer up his 2011 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible, the same one he was awarded after winning the MVP award at Super Bowl XLVI.

Thanks to a plethora of bids, Manning's convertible ended up being sold for an impressive $140,000, with the proceeds going directly to organizations such as Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry, America's Food Fund, World Central Kitchen and Feeding America.

Below is the video of the two-time Super Bowl MVP delivering the Corvette to the winner of the auction.

Daniel Jones, Jason Garrett on track to return

Daniel Jones and Jason Garrett are each on track to return to the Giants Sunday in Baltimore. If they do, perhaps the offense they command will be right behind them.

After missing two of the last three games, Jones is healthier than he was when he was inactive last week for the game against Cleveland and barring a setback with either his hamstring or ankle will start at quarterback against the Ravens.

"I thought he had a good day yesterday," coach Joe Judge said on a Zoom call with reporters before practice today. "He went out there, we put him through everything. Today will be a more intensive day. Today will be a higher volume day for him. It will be interesting to see how he responds. We'll see him out there moving around throughout all the team periods. He'll jump right into his normal role and go forward with it. The intention is if he's able to play, we intend to play him."

Moments later, Judge was asked a follow-up question about his level of optimism regarding Jones' potential return.

"I was encouraged with how he moved yesterday," Judge said. "I was really encouraged. I think some of the moves we made last week with him, although it was kind of hard for him to kind of sit out on it with the double injuries, but I think that helped resolved some of those issues. All the feedback we've gotten medically is that he's continued to improve and he's at lesser risk of being injured, and that's really the things we're looking for right there as far as positive news. But he moved around nice yesterday. We'll put him through more today. I can't give you a percentage or any kind of a gauge on that. But I would say we came through yesterday's practice feeling like we're on the right track."

Garrett, the offensive coordinator who calls plays for Jones and the offense, wasn't in MetLife Stadium when the Giants faced the Browns because he was quarantining after a test revealed he had contracted COVID-19. Tight ends coach Freddie Kitchens assumed the play-calling duties.

This week, Garrett has participated in meetings remotely. And while Kitchens stepped in today when the coordinators had their weekly media availability, the Giants' expectation is Garrett will assume his duties in Baltimore.

"From everything we understand, he'll be available at the game to call plays like he has before," Judge said. "There's really more of that timetable from the league of ... We're still waiting on a couple points of clarity, but we are expecting to have him at the game calling plays and being on the sideline."
