Giants hold 31-10 lead at halftime

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.
