Final: Packers 38 Giants 35

Lawrence Tynes knocked through a 50-yard field goal with room to spare to get the Giants to within one point. Jake Ballard had a key catch along the sideline to keep the drive alive on a perfectly thrown pass from Manning. Brandon Jacobs had some tough runs early in the drive.

– Charles Woodson has left the game after a helmet-to-helmet collision with Ahmad Bradshaw.

– The D forced a big stop, with a Tollefson sack being one of the big plays, but the offense then gave it back with a quick three and out.

– Donald Driver dragged his feet along the side of the end zone for a seven yard touchdown catch to put the Packers up by eight. The defensive line created very little pressure, leaving the secondary exposed.

– The good news for the Giants is that the Cowboys have just lost in overtime to the Cardinals, keeping them just a game above the Giants if big Blue drops this one.

– The Giants just lucked into 16 yards of field position after Henry Hynoski appeared to call for a fair catch, and then ran with the ball. It seemed as if he was just trying to signal to his teammates that he would catch the kickoff, but a raised hand usually equals a fair catch. another missed call, this time in new York’s favor.

– A two yard touchdown pass to Hakeem Nicks brought the Giants to within two points, and then DJ Ware ran in a delayed handoff from two yards out to convert on the two point attempt. You have to love the fight you’ve seen from this team today, no matter the outcome.

– Aaron Rodgers is on another level. 58 seconds was more than enough time for him to march the Packers down the field and stick them within field goal range. Mason Crosby hit a 31-yard chip shot to keep Green Bay undefeated. It was another classic game between these two franchises, and a heartbreaking fourth straight loss for the Giants.
