Giants defense paves the way to 10-6 halftime edge


Eli Manning threw his 17th interception of the season and there’s been a lot of exasperated conversations with his receivers after other incompletions, but the Giants still hold a 10-6 lead at halftime over the Packers because of their defensive efforts.

The Giants have held the Packers to no third down conversions and just four first downs overall over a first half that’s seen quarterback Scott Tolzien hit a few big plays without moving the ball consistently. It doesn’t help that the Giants have held the Packers to just 13 rushing yards on nine attempts as Green Bay needs to have the balance of the running game with Tolzien as the quarterback, but the quarterback was able to use two quick completions to set up a Mason Crosby 57-yard field goal just before the half to move the Packers a bit closer.

Manning’s interception killed a promising Giants drive and he has continued to look uncomfortable even as the Giants offense has found more success than it has at other points in their three-game winning streak. Andre Brown continues to run the ball well, something that should help the Giants run down some clock if their defense continues to keep them in front.

    Do the giant’s receivers hate Eli?

    How hard is it to run to an area, stand there and catch?

    “I’m gonna run here – then run away from where the QB is gonna throw the ball and act dumbfounded when it’s intercepted…”

    They need to go back to their effective strategy and start faking injuries. That’s the only way the Giants made it to their Superbowl runs. #dallascowboysaretakingthenfceast

    The worthless and classless Packer fans saying their 3rd string QB is better than Ponder. 6 points against the pitiful Giants.

    Oh, MN has 13 against one of the best Defenses in the league.

    Tolzien is doing great.

    Defenses aren’t scared about a Rodgers-less defense. Period.
