Geno Smith To Become First Black Starting QB In Giants History
The New York Giants have been a professional football organization in the NFL since 1925. Throughout their 92-year tenure in the sport, they have never once had an African-American quarterback to start a game. Not a single one. In 92 years.

That will change on Sunday because there is another fist taking place at the exact same time. The Giants have benched quarterback Eli Manning for the first time in 14 seasons in which he started 210 consecutive games.
A white man had to fall so that a Black man could rise. Quite a lot to unpack there.
Ninety. Two. Years.
