Eli Manning and Tom Brady are ready for the season, and so is Rhett Bomar .
Haven't heard of him? Well, he just might be the New York Giants ' backup quarterback.

Bomar probably nailed down the job, throwing a 60-yard scoring pass to Duke Calhoun with 1:49 to play as the Giants rallied for a 20-17 victory over the New England Patriots on Thursday night.

"It felt great," said Bomar, who completed 11 of 24 passes for 171 and one interception. "You always want to end the preseason on a good note. It was good to end it like that."

The 25-year-old Bomar assumed the backup job this week when veteran Jim Sorgi was placed on injured reserve with a shoulder problem. However, the Giants' concern was that the second-year pro has never played in a regular-season game, which might work against him if the team decides it wants a veteran to back up Manning.

Fantasy Impact: 

Both teams involved their Tight Ends in the red zone. Possible sign of things to come.
