Giants running short on cornerbacks after one makes a play

The Giants finally made a play on defense. Then they started running out of guys with which to make them.

The Giants actually slowed Green Bay’s offensive roll in the first quarter, with a Janoris Jenkins interception in the red zone, keeping the margin at 7-0.

It was actually the first turnover created by the Giants this season, since they spent $200 million in free agency funds to improve a defense that needed it.

But then, two key parts, cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Eli Apple left the game with groin injuries, and the team has said they were out.

That’s going to be tricky the rest of the night, as the Packers looked polished on offense early on.
