- Two Giants are injured on the Aaron Rodgers scramble play; Kenny Phillips and JPP are slow to get up. Phillips seems to be down with a right leg injury, which should be cause for concern given his long list of leg issues.
- Chase Blackburn stays stride for stride with Finley and knocks down Rodgers’ 4th down attempt. The Giants offense scoring touchdowns has afforded the defense to play its style of football.
- The Giants take up over 5 minutes on this latest drive and baring a miracle these last 4 minutes the Giants will move to 7-4.
- The Giants opt to go for it on 4th and goal from the 4 yard line and come up short after Eli’s pass is tipped.
- Graham Harrell is in the game for the Packers with 4 minutes left in the game. Both teams will clear their benches and look ahead to next weeks match ups.
- The Giants open up the second half with another sack and they force an early Green Bay punt.
- The Giants offense are moving the ball slowly but surely down the field.The running game has picked up where they left off in the first half and they will need to close out this game for the Giants.
- The running game is stopped around midfield though and Weatherford puts the Packers on their 9 yard line.
- The Giants offense seems to be gaining its first half momentum and Eli Manning hits Hakeem Nicks for a 30 yard gain.
- Packers defense is uncharacteristically committing unforced errors tonight. They aren’t the best defense in the league by any means but they usually don’t beat themselves.
- Hakeem Nicks lands on top of the defender and extends the ball over the goal line. Tom Coughlin has challenged the play as they look to take a commanding 28 point lead at Met Life.
- The Giants win the challenge and Eli Manning tosses his 3rd touchdown of the night, this one to Hakeem Nicks.
- Eli finds Nicks for the first down but his arm strength still seems to be lacking. He missed Nicks on a deep pass with a duck and that pass to Nicks floated in softly. Maybe indecision is effecting his arm as much as fatigue.
- Bradshaw running angry and Hynoski is winning almost every battle against these Packers inside linebackers.
- Victor Cruz shows up right on time and Eli finds him on an in route against double coverage. Cruz has been quiet the past few games but he is still amongst the league leaders in most receiving categories and is now the best red zone option for Eli Manning.
- Kenny Phillips loses track of John Kuhn on 3rd down and the Packers pick up 30 yards on the play. The Giants still giving up long plays and making mistakes defensively. Corey Webster is guilty of the latter on that 3rd down.
- Phillips is playing very well at safety today and makes a nice stop on 3rd and short. The Giants stop that long Packers drive and have an opportunity to add some points of their own before the half ends.
- Packers elect to kick the field goal instead of going for the 4th and short, making this a two possession game.
- The Giants chose to take the check down on 3rd and 4 instead of taking a shot down the middle of the field. The Packers will get the ball back with 2 timeouts and the 2 minute warning. Aaron Rodgers can do a lot with this final possession and the Pack receiving to begin the 2nd half. This can easily be a tied game before the Giants offense returns to the field.
- Umenyiora forces the fumble with a beautiful strip sack and JPP scoops the ball and returns it to the 20 yard line. The 3 safety look comes up big once again for this Giants squad.
- Reuben Randle is becoming comfortable in this Giants offense and Eli Manning has been the beneficiary of that thus far tonight.
- Ahmad Bradshaw adds the exclamation point to this drive with his strong run on the Shotgun counter play.
- The Giants look sharp on the first drive of the game mixing in the run and the pass.
- Bradshaw starting the game with a nice delay is just what he needs to regain his confidence. He has needed fumbles in the past few games to light a fire inside of him but early runs should give him the same results.
- Eli misses a wide open Hynoski for the Touchdown and Andre Brown finishes the job from a yard away. The Giants continue to struggle with timing routes.
- The Packers respond with an easy Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson TD pass. Corey Webster has looked horrible the past few weeks; Webster is in a tight race with the Eagles’ Asomugha for worst CB in the NFC East.
- Eli Manning looks lost on this second drive and the Gmen are forced to punt. Eli Manning can’t wait for the calendar to turn over into December.
- The Giants defense is using more of their 3 safety look tonight with the addition of a healthy Kenny Phillips. The pass rush should have time to get to Rodgers with all of the congestion this scheme causes in the middle of the field.
- Packers miss a long field goal and the Giants go back to work.
- Ahmad Bradshaw carrying this Giants offense in this first quarter. The best of Ahmad is always seen early in the season and the few weeks following the bye week.
- Eli gives Williams the shoulder on a 13 yard scramble and this may be what gets him pumped up.
- Eli throws his first TD pass since Week 7 to the rookie Reuben Randle. Randle beats the Packers best cover corner and the Giants don’t have to settle for a field goal. Great pass by Eli Manning but the strong running game has been the reason for these early Giants touchdowns in Met Life Stadium.
- Corey Webster takes a gamble on jumping the slot receiver in cover 2 and picks off Aaron Rodgers. Webster has struggled on passes deeper than 10 yards but he is still capable of defending these short passes. Huge takeaway for this Giants defense and a huge momentum gainer for the entire squad.
- The ball is moved back to the 33 yard line and the Giants will need to earn this touchdown on offense.
- The Giants are unable to pick up the 1st down on 3rd and 1. The interception nets the Giants only 3 points and with this Packers offense a 10 point lead isn’t safe for long.
- Chase Blackburn ends the first quarter with a huge sack on Aaron Rodgers. The play calling from Perry Fewell has changed now that the defense has become healthier. The aggressive style of Giants football is back and it is only a matter of time until the defensive line begins to wreak havoc.
