Video: Eli Manning, Daniel Jones played drinking game together at bar after win
Eli Manning once again took a back seat to rookie Daniel Jones for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins, but the two New York Giants quarterbacks seemed to really enjoy the overtime victory together.
After the Giants pulled off a thrilling 41-35 OT win in Washington, Manning and Jones returned home and celebrated at the Green Rock Tap & Grill in Hoboken, New Jersey. They made it rain with napkins and played some flip cup together, and Manning seemed awfully proud of the man who took his job.
Never thought I'll see Eli Manning and Daniel Jones partying… but here we are.

If that’s not being a mentor, we don’t know what is.
Manning has managed to say all the right things about a difficult situation this year, and it’s safe to assume he holds no ill will toward the rookie if he’s out partying with him after games. We don’t know how much Manning has helped Jones in the film room, but the flip cup advice is invaluable.
