Giants increase lead to 20-6 after three quarters

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on November 17, 2013 – 5:27 pm


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.

    This team cannot get out of its own way. Defense bends, then breaks. Offense horribly inconsistent. I fear this season is lost. 5-2 with AR; 0-3 without him. We are what our record says we are: Not a good football team.

    First pick-six against the Packers in a very long time.. Very bad timing.

    Sorry, life is tough enough without getting frustrated watching the Packers lose. Had to switch channels to watch another game. I still don’t understand how opponents’ receivers can be so wide open…..they’re not even in the same camera shot. Maddening that these guys are making big bucks to do this.

    I dunno Canadian Bill, I think alot of fans are just fed up with bad defense. Our defense was a big reason we got put out of the Playoffs the previous two seasons. Of course, we’ll be lucky to even get into the Playoffs this season.

    Already taken my Bart Starr jersey off…can’t believe they’re still running the ball…ridiculous!

    I agree Steve…very difficult to watch the Packers these days.

    Capers, Ted, mike, Aaron, who cares , this team is going to lose again. No toughness , goodbye playoffs

    Their play reminds me of when I first became a fan in the late ’80s. I could have done without being reminded of those days.

    I’m not even sure the Pack can beat the Vikings at Lambeau without Rodgers. We very well could be going into Detroit at 5-6 on Thanksgiving. Would have been nice to see the team win at least a game without Rodgers…but yeah, that looks like wishful thinking at this point.

    Defense hasn’t stopped anyone in a long time. This is a reflection of leadership, period.
    Our secondary covers each other. I read alot of these comments and would welcome some sort of explaination on how this is alright, week in and week out.

    Who wants to be a Viking fan. We are still not out of it. Have to make the playoffs and we can just have to win some games when Rodgers gets back. Remember 2010 We were 10 and 6

    When ARod went down it was on the defense…what a putrid response! We could’ve won at least one game!

    And that’s a wrap-now to improve on the draft position and find a capable back-up QB.

    Tolzien just cost the Packer that game Flynn should start the game against Vikings simply due to Tolzien 3 game changing INTs

    defense was strong that 4th quarter bit the QB folded

    Find a capable backup QB? You’re looking at him. He made some mistakes, but he looks more than capable of being a great backup.

    And how can so many people write the Packers out of the playoffs? We’ll get Aaron back soon. If we win the three division games we’ll have a great shot at winning the division. Just a game back right now.

    1 game out of division lead with 2 division games up next the Pack Can do this HOPE IS NOT LOST YET

    All I have to say is how dare you call yourselves GB fans? I am upset about this to but don’t be saying GB sucks. We just have to rally when Rodgers comes back. I do agree we need a good backup but Flynn could be it. If not the GB from Clemson looks really good. We should not give up on our team just yet.GO PACK GO.

    TYLER, why are you so satisfied to have a team play so horrible and HOPE they win the division? I rather see Detroit or Chicago win the division, they have a better chance of winning a game in the playoffs!!! You play the game not just win your division, but win the SUPERBOWL!!! And Green Bay can’t even BEAT TEAMS UNDER 500.PCT WINS !!! COME ON MAN, LETS NOT BE BEGGERS!!

    1st half MM with no faith in Tolkien. Giants weakness is secondary and run with 8 in box every series. Finally tried and gosh it worked. Even tried a screen and it worked. We need a def coordinator and offense coordinator. MM I coach and let someone else call the plays. Def scheme is awful. Every qb we play has record game.

    We’re still only one game back, but it seems so much worse the way the team is playing.. When is Arod supposed to be back?
    That defense is so bad that the Packers only chance to win is by putting up at least 30 points. Bring on Matt Flynn. It’s not that Tolzien was that bad, but he turns the ball over at the worst possible times. Maybe Flynn has one more good game left in him. Yea and maybe our Db’s can cover somebody!! If not it’s wait until next year!

    If Flynn plays the next 3 games I feel we have a chance with Rodgers coming back for the Cowboys game. Flynn can win those 3 games with his experience and knowledge in the system. Tolzien is ok but just not ready to control this team through these rough times. Our best bet is with Flynn taking over. We can win the next three games if we do that.

    Also….can Leroy Butler suit up again and take over for that sorry excuse of a safety named Morgan Burnett?

  42. By Scott on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply


    Tolzien needs to learn to look off the secondary/LBs and not stare down receivers! He needs some more seasoning before playing. Flynn next week please!

    Don’t give up on the packers we can do this. Just get some touchdowns and the defense will step up remember in the giants game when Green Bay finnaly got a touch down the defense got to sacks against the giants the next drive for the giants so don’t give up just get touchdowns we can do this GO PACK GO
