Too Deep Zone: Full Circle

The Too Deep Zone season ends as it began: with an analysis of Eli Manning. Eli has grown up in recent weeks, but tape study shows that when it comes to the Giants passing game, simplicity is bliss. Plus, a breakdown of the Patriots run defense and a quibble with a Sporting News play diagram.
