Eli Manning said he's not worried about potentially going into the regular season without a preseason touchdown pass for the first time since his rookie year. Well, neither is Justin Tuck.

"Eli’s one of those guys, he’s harder on himself than anyone else is going to be on him and he’ll learn from this, but that’s a good defense man," Tuck said. "We drove the ball well, but the turnovers, they will kill you. He knows that better than anybody, but I’m not worried about it. I know he’s going to come to play when we kick the season off and he’s going to be one of the reasons that we have a great year."
