Crosby’s 57-yarder cuts deficit to 10-6 at half

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 17, 2013 – 4:43 pm

131117-in-game-updates-2b-300EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — K Mason Crosby ended the first half with a 57-yard FG to pull the Packers within 10-6 at intermission.

The Packers took over on their own 37-yard line with 43 seconds left in the half. Passes of 9 yards to WR Jarrett Boykin and 15 yards to WR Jordy Nelson, followed by a spike with 5 seconds left, set up the kick for Crosby.

It’s the longest outdoor field goal in club history and the second longest overall, one yard shy of Crosby’s 58-yarder at the Metrodome in 2011.

The Giants began the quarter by getting a 40-yard field goal from Josh Brown to make it 10-0. A 30-yard pass to WR Victor Cruz on third-and-7 got the drive going. New York then converted a fourth-and-inches at the Green Bay 36 on a run by RB Brandon Jacobs. On the next series, the Giants faced fourth-and-short again, but elected to kick.

The Packers answered with a field goal of their own. QB Scott Tolzien hit passes of 25 yards to Nelson and 45 yards to WR James Jones to get the ball in the red zone, but the drive stalled there. Crosby kicked a 24-yard FG.

That red-zone failure made the Packers just 1-of-7 in scoring TDs in the red zone since QB Aaron Rodgers’ injury.

The Packers defense thwarted the Giants next drive after a 74-yard march. Another fourth-and-short conversion by Jacobs got New York into scoring range. But on third-and-11 from the 15, CB Tramon Williams made a diving interception of a pass that was thrown behind WR Louis Murphy Jr., and the Packers remained within seven points.

    Nice one Crosby! Hopefully they can get a score to start the second half.

    Yeah, get rid of Crosby, fire Capers, put in Matt Flynn, McCarthy has to go. The Packers will win this game dammit!

    I don’t understand how everyone on defense is so good the coach is the greatest, but as a whole they can’t play a whole game.

    well at least CHI/BAL going to OT

    well, this game is another loss… I’m going to leave it on as background noise while I catch up with my literature.

    Antidote for a struggling offense; play the Packers.

    two defenders covering each other while Nix is wide open!!! If anything, this is comical

    So how good of a coach is McCarthy without Rodgers playing.

    JUST LIKE THAT MCCARTHY. another game that Flynn would of won . I said at the beginning of week get your heart off your sleeve don’t play the local boy . This is another game that Flynn would of won or at least got the ball in the end zone .

    MM likes to talk about “cleaning things up” after a loss. He needs to start Monday in his own office. … Clean it out!

    Piss me off . they need a quarterback that score 30+ with this Defense it has always been like this …. Maybe next year it will be a priority to have a backup quarterback .because we don’t have to worry about seeing the post season this year !!!!!!!!!

    Waited too long to sign Flynn…using a QB on training wheels and uninspired defensive play. Spend an entire draft on defensive personnel and I must tolerate Capers keeping his job. He must have pics of Ted in women’s clothing. Frustrated Packer fan living in NY watching this poor excuse of a defense collapse again

    Way to go Capers….let them run the clock out!

    The defense did look absolutely terrible at times. But they actually made some plays today. Each phase of the game had its’ moments – good and bad.

    I am sorry, but Ed Donatell was canned following 4 th and 26. How many chances does Capers get? Can’t get a 3 and out….pathetic on 3rd and long…give up too many big plays….no turnovers…no emotion!!!

    How depressing!

    You so called fans are lol

  23. By Frank on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    You know I am a fan when I can reference 4 th and 26…I suffered through the Bart Starr and Forrest Gregg coaching era’s….Randy Wright as a QB….not easy to follow the Pack in NY pre internet and Directv. Thompson is a great GM…McCarthy is a solid head coach….Rodgers a great QB…. A lot of talent on this team, but Capers sucks and he has to go!!!

    Crosby is a keeper, 57 yards is pretty incredible.
