Giants Season Review

As much as we might want to bask in the glow of the Super Bowl win, unfortunately, we can’t. The NFL has moved on and is already focusing on free agency and the draft. So we’ll do the same.

I do, of course, want to start by looking back. How did this crazy, incredible season unfold? What happened? We’ll go game by game, and provide a brief description. Enjoy


Giants At Redskins

This game started the season off awfully. The 28-14 loss made Rex Grossman look like a star (that would become a theme for the Giants, unfortunately). It started off a theme of the Giants sort of playing down to competition. An awful start.


Rams at Giants

This was more like it. The score (28-16) didn’t reflect the game; the Giants thoroughly outplayed the Rams. This game was the first in which Michael Boley really made his importance to the defense known.


Giants at Eagles

This was another incredible win. The Eagles entered the season as the favorites, and the Giants just dismantled them. Victor Cruz was huge, and this was his coming out party. Mike Vick did not have time at all; the pressure was terrific. A great performance.


Giants at Cardinals

The first of many comeback wins. Hakeem Nicks had a big game, and Eli was clutch.


Seahawks at Giants

This wasn’t as good. Despite a great game from Victor Cruz, the Giants let the Seahawks dictate the tempo. Their no huddle offense really did a number on the Giants, and the Seahawks, who really weren’t that great, made the Giants look silly.


Bills at Giants

Another comeback win for the Giants. But this one should have been a blowout. The Giants made games against lesser teams too difficult.




Dolphins at Giants

Another sloppy game; they almost lost to the then-unbeaten Dolphins. Eli Manning was terrific, throwing for 349 yards.


Giants at Patriots

This was a terrific game, as the Giants had to come back, hitting Jake Ballard for the game winning touchdown on the road. They won without Nicks and Bradshaw; I’m sure this game gave them plenty of confidence heading into the Super Bowl.

WEEK 10:

Giants at 49ers

A failed comeback, but a close game. Michael Boley was hurt, which was a huge blow. Their comeback came just short.

WEEK 11:

Eagles at Giants

The Giants let Vince Young look like the Vince Young from Texas in this game, as he drove the Eagles down the field in close win for them. The Giants looked flat as all get out in this game.

WEEK 12:

Giants at New Orleans

This was just awful. Saints had a field day, winning 49-24. The defense was just pitiful.

WEEK 13:

Packers at Giants

This game was a terrific one. Close to the end, until the Pack led a last minute drive to win. This was the start, I think, of starting to turn things around.

WEEK 14:

Giants at Cowboys

The JPP game. Pierre-Paul blocked a field goal that would have tied the game, and kept a lead that was earned from a furious comeback by Eli Manning. An awesome game.

WEEK 15:

Redskins at Giants

Yeesh. After all the momentum from the Cowboys game, the Giants laid an egg, and once again, made Rex Grossman look like a star. Things were looking bleak.

WEEK 16:

Giants at Jets

The Battle of NY went to the Giants, as a 99 yard touchdown by Victor Cruz propelled them to victory, and I think, the playoff run.

WEEK 17:

Cowboys at Giants

Win and in. The Giants did just that, playing great on both sides; most dominant performance to that point.



Falcons at Giants

This was the most dominant performance of the year. On offense and defense. Defense pitched a shutout and the offense was moving at will. Terrific game, fun atmosphere.


Giants at Packers

The Hail Mary game. The Giants came in as heavy dogs, and methodically stopped Rodgers, and moved down the field with ease. The Hail Mary to Nicks was good too.


Giants at 49ers

A topsy turvy game that was won on a overtime field goal. Cruz was terrific. Devin Thomas was the hero, with two fumble recoveries.


Giants Patriots

We all know how this went. Eli did his thing, and the Giants came out as champs.
