Eli Manning Passess Phil Simms as New York Giants' All-Time Completions Leader

While Eli Manning and the New York Giantswere being humiliated by Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon, Manning took one small record books step forward by passing Phil Simms as the Giants all-time completions leader.

Simms' 2,576 completions now looks up at Manning's 2,585, although Eli still has 2,293 yards to go before he tops Simms' mark in that category.

This small bit of record-keeping will perhaps get lost after Sunday's 34-0 loss to the Falcons, but it's nice to keep in perspective the kind of franchise quarterback Manning has become.
