EAST RUTHERFORD - A few very lucky contest winners got to be on the receiving end of a pass thrown by Giants quarterback Eli Manning Tuesday.

The group of 10 Big Blue fans were winners of the "Dunkin' Donuts- Eli's Way to Pay" contest.

Manning spent nearly two hours with the fans, discussing his Super Bowl wins, posing for pictures, and tossing the pigskin at the Giants practice facility in East Rutherford.

Glen Davis, of Brick, says he couldn't believe he scored the honor. "To come here and to be in here where many people don't get to come," he says. "And to meet Eli Manning and seeing some of the other Giants in the hallway while we were walking through is the experience of a lifetime."

The 10 winners were chosen out of 170,000 hopefuls after texting a special code to a Dunkin' Donuts number earlier this year.
