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.
