Eli Manning’s nightmarish year ended in symbolic fashion — with his NFL-leading 27th interception the play after he suffered a sprained left ankle — on a dreary day in front of a sparse crowd to end the Giants’ underwhelming season.

Late in the second quarter of the Giants’ 20-6 victory over the Redskins, Washington defensive lineman Chris Baker hit Manning low and the quarterback came up hobbling. He stayed in for the next play, but didn’t put any pressure on his left leg when he was picked off on a deflection by Josh Wilson.

He didn’t return. Manning completed 10 of 24 passes for 152 yards and a 24-yard scoring strike to Jerrel Jernigan.
