How Many Championship Rings Does Eli Manning Have?

After getting drafted No. 1 overall by the San Diego Chargers, Eli Manning forced his way out of town and was traded to the New York Giants for Philip Rivers where he would go on to win two Super Bowl rings. 

The young brother of Peyton Manning, Eli went to Ole Miss and played for the Giants throughout his entire career from 2004 to 2019. 

While Manning had some success during the postseason, he has his fair share of naysayers due to many aspects of his game. One of his attributes was his turnovers. Besides his rookie and final season, he threw double-digit interceptions every year, including three with 20 or more (27 in 2013).

Still, we can’t remove Manning’s postseason accomplishments, which we’ll explore below. 

Eli Manning NFL Championship Rings

2007-08: New York Giants

Going up against the 16-0 regular season New England Patriots, the Giants were easily considered the underdog. The Patriots were 12-point favorites. 

Down 7-3 in the fourth quarter, the Giants rallied, starting with the infamous David Tyree catch off the top of his helmet, which has since been dubbed the “Helmet Catch.”

In that same quarter, Tyree caught one of Manning’s two passing touchdowns, a five-yard catch. 

Down 14-10 with less than a minute to go, Manning found his No. 1 option, Plaxico Burress, for a 13-yard score to go up 17-14, which was the nail in the coffin that got the undefeated Patriots. 

This spoiled their undefeated season, and Manning got his first ring and Super Bowl MVP title. 

2011-12: New York Giants

Patriots and Giants. Here we go again. 

In Manning’s second Super Bowl appearance, he matched up with the Patriots again. He beat Tom Brady and them again, this time 21-17. 

The game started with a safety due to intentional grounding from Brady, followed by a touchdown from Manning to wide receiver Victor Cruz.

After the first quarter, the Giants led 9-0 before the Patriots scored ten unanswered, leading 10-9 at halftime. 

In the third quarter, the Giants had two field goals to one Brady to Aaron Hernandez touchdown. After three, the Patriots led 17-15. 

The Patriots didn’t score in the fourth, but the Giants did on an Ahmad Bradshaw rushing score with less than a minute to go. 

Manning finished the game, completing 30-of-40 passes for 296 yards and one touchdown.

Not only did he win another Super Bowl, but he got another Super Bowl MVP. 

Comparing Manning’s Rings to the Winningest Players in NFL History

Manning is 2-0 in Super Bowl appearances, but as you’ll see from the list below, plenty of players have secured more Super Bowl rings than him.

That said, if we compare him to his brother, they both have two a piece, so at least they can’t one-up each other on that front, even if Manning won one with two separate teams. 

In all, Manning had three touchdowns and one interception through two Super Bowls, and his two MVPs are certainly something to add to a potential Hall of Fame resume.

NFL Conference Championship Appearances Compared to NFL Legends

Just like the Super Bowls, Manning has only appeared in two NFC Championship Games, winning both en route to his two big game wins.

In these wins, he threw for 567 yards and two touchdowns. 

Still, as you’ll see below, his two appearances are far less than many, including his brother Peyton.
