The New York Giants have made a switch at quarterback. Eli Manning has been benched.

Rookie signal-caller Daniel Jones will start Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This will be the first NFL start for Jones, who was taken with the sixth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

This news came one day after Giants Head Coach Pat Shurmur was noncommittal on Manning. The future Hall of Famer has been the face of the franchise for the past 15-years.

But in recent years, he has struggled. In the first two games of the season, it cost the Giants $17 million by playing Manning.

Jones looked impressive in the preseason. The quarterback — who many Giants fans did not like the pick — will have to prove that he can handle it in the regular season against top defenses. 

The 38-year-old New Orleans, Louisiana native has guided the Giants to an 0-2 record this season in two starts. He has gone 56 of 89 for 556 yards. He has also thrown two touchdown passes and had two interceptions.

He has not had a winning record as the Giants starting quarterback since the 2016 season when he guided the team to an 11-5 record. In the past three seasons, Manning as a 8-25 record in 33 starts with a 788 of 1,236 competion rate for 8,323 yards. He has also thrown 42 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.

According to ESPN, Manning has the most losses from a quarterback since winning Super Bowl XLVI during the 2011 season. He also has the most interceptions with 112 and the most turnovers with 137.
