Giants hold 31-10 lead at halftime

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on November 25, 2012 – 9:01 pm

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers under pressure

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.–The Packers trail the Giants at halftime of tonight’s game at MetLife Stadium, 31-10.

Each team scored quickly, the Giants first on a 74-yard touchdown drive, the big play of which was a 59-yard screen pass to running back Ahmad Bradshaw. The Packers countered immediately with a 61-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson.

The Giants then seized control of the game, mixing run and pass expertly. Eli Manning pitched a 16-yard touchdown pass to Rueben Randle, capping a 55-yard drive, and then Manning capped a 61-yard drive with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Victor Cruz in the second quarter that staked the Giants to a commanding 24-7 lead.

Needing to score points and buy time for its defense to rest and regroup, the Packers offense went on a six-minute drive that culminated in a 28-yard field goal by Mason Crosby, who had missed from 55 yards earlier, his eighth miss in his last 14 field goal attempts.

Rodgers was under a heavy rush and was sacked three times, the third sack resulting in a fumble the Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul recovered in scoring territory with 1:03 to play in the half. Rodgers was intercepted by Corey Webster earlier in the half.

Following Pierre-Paul’s recovery, the Giants quickly moved into the red zone with a pass from Manning to Randle, who broke tackles and carried to the 13-yard line. On the next play, Bradshaw roared up the middle and scored standing up.

    Holy smokes, just when we need both Lines to step it up, we’ve given up 31 points in 30 minutes. This is hard to watch. 30 minutes left guys. Anybody going to step up? Anybody? Hello?

    What is up with the offensive line, the Pac should start running screens to the strong side. Then fallow up with an outside option, or a sweep. Something, cause this is not the same team I watches last week…

    Packer fan but this team is not very good, offense has sucked since Philbin left, no offensive line, defense you could drive a tractor thru without being touched, way to coach em up Capers. Not even worth going to the playoffs w/ this team that spends more time on the injured list than on the field. If we did 9ers will kick our ass so bad we will have to stop watching at halftime.For 2 years this defense can’t tackle, can’t cover and can’t stop the run hopefully next year they get better but this game shows this is as good as it gets.

    Not just poor in all phases…. But I think coaching staff should notice they are making a habit of getting outcoached by the Giants. One step behind. Reactionary. No real answers on either side of the ball… McCarthy started the bad momentum when he elected to have Crosby try the 55 yard field goal. Gave the Giants the ball and field position. Really? what were Crosby’s chances on that one? Playing from behind since that mistake….

  15. By Steve Kakacek on Nov 25, 2012 | Reply

    New look mustache….same stupid play calling. Run for no yardage and then try to pass into coverage on a long 3rd. The strength of the Packers is the throwing game…..capitalize on that. The Packers just seem to be the nonchalant, spoiled kid expecting the game to be handed to them. Some lessons could also be learned from Oregon as far as no-huddle offense. The Packers will be lucky to make the playoffs.

    This is just sad no line play on offense or defense . Too much hurt, this team is deep but it seems to have reached it’s limit .

  18. By True Pack Attack on Nov 25, 2012 | Reply

    Where do I start………ah, ya whole team sucks and offensive line for the Pack really sucks. Defense never showed up for the game (Hello where R U? ). This team is not going anywhere this year and if U think otherwise good luck to U. Good team shows up every week and finds a ways to win, but this team can’t do that because they SUCK. I think some players should focus more on playing football than doing commercials. Just saying…

    Keep dreaming TheDickA… Bears will go nowhere in the playoffs. Bears O-Line sucks too. Just look forward to playing San Fran again (if the Bears even get there), and you will relapse into PTSD from the 49ers complete and total destruction beatdown they put on the Bears last week (that was every bit as bad as this one the Packers are experiencing, and then some, since the Bears defense was thought to be good before they were exposed in that game).

    Loose the ridiculous looking stache, both of you, and concentrate on football. 4th and inches and you kick a field goal, give me a break. I gotta represent these guys tomorrow, I will, but with a heavy heart.

    I am soooo disappointed in our team. The play calling was so conservative I thought I was looking at my Grandmother’s 401k. We are not a playoff team; our offense is not in rhythm and hampered by conservative play calling. Our defense, which looked good last week, had no clue this game. I own part of this team and this is very embarrassing. A game back of the Bears, oh my!

    As a HUGE packers fan this is a hard game to watch… but everyone has a bad game, and i think playing the vikings at home next week we will have to be better at the start of the game to the end of the game. The packers still can make the playoffs yet!! They just need to play like they are going to make the play offs!! NO GIVING UP!!!

  30. By Scott 1956 on Nov 25, 2012 | Reply

    The Offensive line proved once again that they suck! 5 more sacks! Rodgers has been sacked and hit so much, that if this line doesn’t get better, he may not finish the season! Either Campen is com[pletely stupid, or Thompson can’t draft Offensive linemen. Newhouse is a complete stiff! Actually the whole line was terrible tonight. I should say the line has been terrible ALL YEAR!

    I think the boys did what they could do with as much injuries as they have…really, is anyone surprised? Once I heard Clay was out, Bulaga, Jennings, and the rest of the O line is hurt but playing, like Kuhn and Nelson, it was just a matter of time till the injuries caught up. We took it in the teeth this time…be better next time. Go Pack Go

  32. By Nick on Nov 25, 2012 | Reply

    You guys, i think its time for change. We need to fire tt. I am sick and tired of this. We need to bring in key free agents on d and fire capers. We need to cut our entire o line besides sitton and bulaga. And i love mike but the play calling tonite was terrible. Arod has to be GOD for us to win each and every game. We have no TALENT at running back. If we dont make the playoffs or win a playoff game this season, our coaching staff needs to be fired. Bring in some new ppl with a defensive mind and let arod be arod. If not, we will be losing to teams like the niners and giants every year.

    Should have concentrated more on preparing for the game than growing mustaches! Is Cobb the ONLY guy on the field now? Jones 0 passes even thrown to him, Nelson 3 passes, tight ends what…. 5 total? FORGET THE RUNNING GAME!!! You do not have a blocking O-Line for a 100 yd rusher (nor a 100 yd rusher for that matter). The O-Line can’t stop a nose bleed nor can the Defense. Our season is OVER. People saying it’s just like 2010, BS!! This team has NO HEART. Well…. times run out Packers lost. WHAT will be the excuse tonight? Mike M., “we didn’t execute” REALLY MIKE, NO $H!T. WHY is A Rod holding on to the ball and just standing there in one place with happy feet AGAIN! He was doing that at the beginning of the season, GET THE BALL OUT OF HIS HANDS and to SOMEBODY OTHER THAN COBB!!!

    The Giants played good. And, with our offense line not in the best shape right now. We did pretty good. I still say common we could’ve done better. But, I also have to say good work guys, it’s not easy playing a tough game.

    reading everyone’s comments and i totally agree that the players went into this game on a five game winning high and think that they will roll over the giants. but look what happen the giants are better then the packers again!!! McCarthy needs to give up the play calling to a better offensive coordinator and we need a better defensive coordinator cause Capers just doesn’t have it anymore NONE!!!! i cant believe they played like this they had a chance to get revenge on the giants for last season but no they give a win…. go pack go yeah right more like stop pack stop!!!

    Winning & losing is not the most important thing but the way GB give up after they re down 38-10 in the 3Q. These guys have no heart !!! They re not even trying , they just run every play & want to kill the clock & leave !!! I’m very very disappointed with the way they played today and with those millionare players give up the game just like that…….why would I pay so much money to watch their game ? College football is way better than this.

    Look, the fact of the matter is yes, they will make the playoffs, but no, they won’t make it far once they get there. Horrible defense, like always, no offensive line, like always. Play 2 deep safety, pin your ears back n beat the crap out of Aaron Rodgers, that what good teams do, have done, and will continue to do. I’m sorry but Lang and Newhouse won’t get you far, Saturday has been getting pushed around all year, and what’s gonna happen if just one more guy on that o line goes down, ugh…….Oh, and B.J who ? This guy has a run of 5 or so good games 2 years ago and all of the sudden he is a top priority, gimme a break, if they let Jennings go n give Rajiv big money they are morons !

    This was an embarrassment. Can we draft players that are physical next year since we don’t trade or sign any? There is no one to stop the run (Gilbert Brown), Mathews when healthy is not Reggie White when it goes to pass rush either. They need some REAL offensive linemen, not ones they think they can develop & a REAL RB too!

    want to know why our team is always injured, I watch the 49ers here in SF and they have had 2 guys go down for 1 game a piece, same w/ last year makes you wonder if the team trainer needs to GO!!! worst part is they even hit harder and know how to tackle a moving target, we try to knock them down w/ our shoulders and they just run right thru our attempts. Lousy preparation for such a big game, kinda hope they don’t make the playoffs so they don’t get embarassed like this again. PATHETIC, WISH i DIDN’T WATCH IT

    oh! and bye the way the Dolphins won again w/ no talent makes you wonder who the brains on the offense was the last few years, Philbin is getting alot more out of alot less talent MM & TT, nice playcalling Mike have you ever heard of a quick slant over the middle Favre used to run those all the time for big yards

    Long time Packers fan and coming up on a year as Shareholder. My Girlfriend bought me tickets to this game as an early X-Mas gift. Never been to a game before and was so thrilled to see the Packers play. It was so disappointing to see the Pack get whacked like that and have to sit there with a bunch of arrogant and cocky NYG fans. I was also embarrassed to see Packers fans start leaving by halftime just because we were getting our asses handed to us. You sit there and you watch your team that you love no matter what the score is. I sat there and stayed. If they have to be out there to play in that game, then I am out there watching them play.
