Giants QB Eli Manning, who turns 27 tomorrow and has played in just four NFL seasons, still has plenty of time. But with a fan base (and, to an extent, an organization) that has grown increasingly impatient with his erratic play, the pressure will be on him to finally deliver his first postseason victory when he faces the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday in the NFC wild-card round. "I think it is something you want to try to accomplish," Manning said. "We have been to the playoffs before, but after you have been there (the goal) is to make it past the first round and win a playoff game and kind of extend your goals to the next level. As a team, that's what we're trying to do." -- NY Daily News
