Eli Manning(notes) was blessed with many gifts. Ambidexterity is not one of them. With the New York Giants looking to take an early lead on the visiting Tennessee Titans on Sunday afternoon, Manning threw an ill-advised ball into the end zone with his left hand. Normally that wouldn't be a problem, except that Manning is right-handed.
Manning has tried left-handed passes before, to varying success. He was intercepted on a similar throw a few years ago, but completed one in 2008 for a two-yard gain. After that, he said he practiced throwing with his non-dominant hand.

"I do sometimes. I don't know why I do it," Manning said at the time. "I throw a little bit left-handed. I'm not bad at it, but I wouldn't say I'm great at it."
Might be time to reevaluate, Eli.
The Giants lost to the Titans, 29-10.
