NFL Week 13: Giants vs. Packers, Game Notes

NEW YORK – The Giants faced the undefeated Green Bay Packers in another NFC battle. The Giants desperately need some wins to keep their playoff hopes alive. Unfortunately, the G-Men were not able to pull out the win after a hard fought game. They lost to the Green Bay Packers 38-35. I have to take my hat off to Big Blue because they played their hearts out but they still need some wins and soon or they will miss the playoffs for a third straight year. Unacceptable in the City of New York. The Giants and Packers each scored in every single quarter of play and I really believe it could have gone either way at the end. The G-Men fall to 6-6 with four games left in the season.

Of course, all of Giants nation is upset with the loss because the loss effects our playoff hopes. Some of the fair weather fans were really laying into the Giants last night. Instead of saying, the Giants are playing the best team in the NFL and doing very well. They say, the Giants stink in all of this angry and unhelpful venting. The picture is very clear now. The Giants need to win all of their last four games to make it back to the playoffs. They might be able to squeak in with three wins but the NFC East is so tight right now with the Cowboys that four wins would be better.

Let’s take a look at my notes from the game.

QB Eli Manning – Manning had another outstanding game. He finished with 347 yards 3 TD’s and 1 INT.

RB Brandon Jacobs – Jacobs ran hard again yesterday and finished with 59 yards and 1 TD leading all rushers.

WR Hakeem Nicks – Nicks exploded for 2 TD’s and 88 yards. He is playing on a Pro Bowl level right now.

DE Justin Tuck – Defensive captain Justin “Truck” had another good game and finished with 1 sack.

LB Chase Blackburn - Blackburn made his return to the field for Big Blue yesterday and came away with an INT. Welcome home Chase!

RB Ahmad Bradshaw – Bradshaw returned to the field after missing a few games due to injury. He was rusty but finished with 38 yards.

LB Mathias Kiwanuka – Kiwi hits hard. He had a good game and was laying out people on the field

S Antrel Rolle – Rolle is a force to be reckoned with out there and finished 3rd on the team in tackles.

TE Jake Ballard – Ballard had another productive game and contributed 47 yards. He has stepped up big time this year.

DE Jason Pierre-Paul – JPP better make it to the Pro Bowl this year. He had another solid game causing havoc.

WR Victor Cruz – Cruz should be in the Pro Bowl this year too. He had a great game finishing with 119 yards.

DT Linval Joseph - Joseph has really been playing well the past few weeks. This week, he led all tacklers on the Giants defense.

CB Aaron Ross – Ross continues to produce out there finishing 4th in tackles. He misses some plays but is doing a good job overall.

DE Dave Tollefson – Tollefson always seems to make a big play in each game he plays in. He finished with 1 sack.

LB Michael Boley – Boley returned to the field from injury and boy am I glad he is back. One of our defensive leaders returns!

TE Travis Beckum - Beckum made his one catch count, going 67 yards for the TD early in the game. Nice going Travis!

P Steve Weatherford – The Weatherman continues his great season with another solid game. You can’t deny his production.

K Lawrence Tynes – Tynes made a huge FG in the 1st quarter and finished 2/2 on FG attempts and made all 3 of his extra point attempts.

Giants Offense – The Giants offense had a great game and put up 447 yards and 35 points on the Packers defense.

Giants Defense – The Giants defense is clearly injury depleted and doing what they can out there. They finished with 2 sacks 1 INT 0 forced fumbles.

Giants Special Teams – The Giants special teams needs work but they did a good job yesterday.

What did you think about the Giants performance against the Packers?

    man,what a great game.its just a shame the g-men couldnt get it to overtime for a chance to win it.rob,do you feel that this game was like the wake-up call game against the patriots in 07 when the g-men fought and kept it close and even though they lost that game,that game seemed to wake them up for that superbowl run.do you see any similarities or do you think they gave there best and there done.i do wish they won the game,but the cowboys loss kind of eased the pain a little.do you think the g-men have it in them to run out the table or the defense will let them down like yesterday.it was like a dagger in the heart after eli put together the drive of the century and then the 2 point conversion to boot.i knew with that time on the clock it was going to be trouble,just a real heartbreaker.i just dont like that in crucial situations the giants defense cant seem to come through.i cant say the giants defense played good because rogers recievers dropped about 10 passes right at them.that actually is when i thought the game was set for the g-men to take it,but it just wasnt meant to be.i hope they could get the road win sunday night then the rest are home.man oh man,4 losses in a row,what a horrible month,its like deja vu all over a game.

      That sure was some game man. I was on the edge of my seat once again the whole game. These games can’t be good for my health lol. I really liked what I saw form the team but I’m dumbfounded by the additional injuries (Kenny Phillips). Things are going to be very interesting for the next month. Get your popcorn ready Bobby lol. I think we are going to sweep the Cowboys.
