Manning, Jacobs anchor Giants offense

Special Contribution by NFL Gridiron Gab Featured Author Adrian Mojia

The Giants came out testing the Pats secondary and it would ultimately lead to two touchdowns in the final three minutes of the game. This was the first scoreless game at half all season, but Manning’s persistence paid off when it mattered most, finishing with the game winning score behind 250 yards with 2 touchdowns and a pick for the day.

His burden was helped along by Brandon Jacobs 72 yard effort and a touchdown which came off a Brady turnover. Jacobs did suffer an injury in the 4th and did not return so that will need monitoring should Bradshaw not be ready next week.

Overall, equal credit has to be given to the Giants defense which never allowed Brady to get comfortable, taking a page out of the Steelers game and running man packages more often than not. With the Giants finally getting healthy on defense, we are seeing what we all expected at end of last season. They are another team which hasn’t received the hype despite their 6-2 record but should garner a flurry of attention after beating Brady in his house.

    The game was close on the scoreboard but, the giants
    clearly outplayed the pats. If not for the special team blunders
    and mannings pick this game should not have been close. As we all
    have said find some plays for scott.

      yeah if it wasnt for Gilbride losing his mind and not calling 1 run play from the 3 yard line that lead to Eli’s pick the game would’ve been 17-3 instead of 10-10.

    I want to give credit to some guys that normally don’t get any like Michael freaking Coe! Incredible play by that man right there. If we can get Prince up to par we can really have some really good secondary play.All these rookies are doing a great job.Coach Quinn had these guys ready and playing great(those drops are not his fault).

      That play was a true veteran type and saved a big gain. Those kinds of plays are instinctive, you can teach them but to do them the player has to have good instincts as a football player and positional player.

    Great effort by Jake Ballard. At one point with the score still 0-0 Ballard caught one up the middle and landed on a defensive player and never touched the ground. Ballard pushed him self off the player and headed down field but the reefs blew the whistle. What’s the deal?

    The Giants are looking more and more like 1986 Giants. Had Ballard kept running it may have looked like a Mark Bavaro style run or perhaps we would have scored.

    The Giants outplayed NE the whole game and it was a good win. Lets see how they do playing a real defense this week in SF. This game should be a doozy.
