EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ–The Packers were down by 14 points, 20-6, heading into the fourth quarter of Sunday night’s game against the Giants at MetLife Stadium.

Scott Tolzien’s 29-yard pass to Jordy Nelson on the Packers’ first drive of the second half put the Packers across midfield, but two plays later Tolzien was intercepted by linebacker Jon Beason and the Giants were in business at the 50-yard line.

Immediately, Eli Manning connected with Hakeem Nicks on a 35-yard pass. The drive stalled, however, and the Giants had to settle for a 28-yard field goal that gave them a 13-6 lead with 10:06 to play in the third quarter.

Mike McCarthy, in another bold special teams move, ordered a fake punt on fourth-and-seven at the Giants 43-yard line. The Packers came up a yard shy of the first down at the Giants 37-yard line with 6:32 to play in the third quarter.

Manning found Victor Cruz down the right sideline for 25 yards to the Packers 32-yard line. Micah Hyde was in coverage. Two plays later, Manning hit Cruz over the middle for 14 yards to the 16.

On third-and-five, Manning pitched a strike to Brandon Myers for a first down at the 3-yard line. Two plays later, Brandon Jacobs scored from a yard out.
