The Detroit Lions figured to get at least one interception vs. the New York Giants, being that Eli Manning was playing. He led the NFL in interceptions last year, and with a new offense and several new receives, he was bound to throw one eventually vs. Detroit.
That said, Manning can't be faulted for the one he threw to linebacker DeAndre Levy in the third quarter of their Monday Night Football matchup. Levy made what will go down as one of, if not the interception of the year.

Levy, the Lions’ Pro Bowl outside linebacker, had a breakout campaign in his fifth year in 2013. A former third-round draft pick out of Wisconsin, Levy set career highs in total tackles (119), solo tackles (85), passes defended (15) and interceptions (six) last season.
Oh, and he easily led all linebackers in interceptions, and is already off to a good start in that department again.
None of this makes Eli Manning feel any better.
