Packers lead 17-6 at half, with Giants missing opportunities

The Giants, or at least Janoris Jenkins, were doing pretty well for a minute.

But given a chance to draw closer, the Giants watched it slip away.

Moments after Giants quarterback Eli Manning couldn’t connect with a wide open fullback Will Tye for what would have been a walk-in touchdown, a sack-fumble gave the Packers the ball back quickly, and made the Giants pay.

The subsequent field goal by Mason Crosby as the half expired gave the Packers a 17-6 lead at the break.

It actually could have been a lot worse, but for a pair of Jenkins interceptions of Aaron Rodgers. It’s the first time Rodgers has thrown multiple picks in a game in nearly a year, but the Giants couldn’t take advantage. They have just three points off those two turnovers, and when they keep giving the Packers chances, that’s a dangerous equation.

    OMG! Somebody text the refs to start calling pass interference on Jenkins! They must have forgot!

    Solid first half by the Packers, but could have been an even bigger lead. Mistake free ball and continued dose of sweaty Eddie should be the recipe for a win…..that and keeping the Giants receivers/TE in front of DBs.

    Rodgers has to play better. Patchwork secondary and he is missing throws or they are dropping them. Sloppy half coming off a bye.

    Giants will soon take over this game, Rodgers is declining, panicking, missing throws here and there and throwing picks. Lol

    Still LOLing at precious Aaron getting run over while trying to make a tackle after his first INT and it somehow being a personal foul.

    You notice how the comments section on the stories about tonight’s game is absolutely full of Viking trolls? Watching every minute of it aren’t you guys? Funny cause I didn’t watch a second of the Viking game. But get a good look at the league’s best run defense and offensive line. Get a good look, cause we’re coming for you.

    Giants LT Ereck Flowers is as bad as I’ve ever seen. He doesn’t even look fit for the practice squad

    Best run defense in the NFL thus far.

    1.8 ypc and 42 ypg.
