The Giants offense is back….and the defense ain’t too bad either! With the benefit of two Packers turnovers, and Aaron Rodgers being limited to 8/13 passing for 131 yards, the Giants offense has come alive again. With 96 yards rushing on 16 carries for 2 TD’s, while Eli was 9/16 for 136 and had two TD’s himself the Giants seem to be back in rhythm.
The game started well with the Giants faking an end around to Victor Cruz and throwing a screen pass to Ahmad Bradshaw that went for 59 yards. Andre Brown scored from the two to make it 7-0. The game then looked like it would turn into a shoot-out as Jordy Nelson beat Corey Webster for 61 yards and a TD. The Giants D settled in after that forcing the two turnovers while collecting 3 sacks.
The Offense really looked balanced as Eli spread the ball around to Nicks, Bennett, Cruz and Randle…the last two with TD catches.
The Packers are in a bit of trouble now as they will need to throw the ball to get back into the game, and the offensive line of the Packers is struggling at best to contain a new look Giants D with Antrel Rolle playing close to the line of scrimmage, and Justin Tuck walking around picking his spots to rush the passer.
