Packers fall to 5-5 with 27-13 loss

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ–The Packers’ losing streak reached three games with a 27-13 loss to the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, but the Packers lost no ground in the NFC North title race, thanks to Detroit’s loss in Pittsburgh.

The Packers cut the Giants’ lead to seven points, 20-13, when Eddie Lacy capped an 83-yard drive with a 4-yard touchdown run. The big play in the drive was a 52-yard pass completion from Scott Tolzien to Jarrett Boykin.

After the Packers defense pitched a three-and-out at the Giants offense, the Packers had the ball at their 30-yard line and with momentum on their side. That momentum quickly switched sides, however, when Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who’s had big games against the Packers in recent years, intercepted a Tolzien pass and returned it 24 yards for a touchdown that gave the Giants a 14-point lead with 10:55 to play in the game. Pierre-Paul’s play would be the game-clincher for the Giants.

Green Bay’s record falls to 5-5, a game behind Detroit and Chicago, each 6-4. Chicago defeated visiting Baltimore in overtime.

Tolzien, in his first pro start, completed 24 of 34 passes for 339 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions. Eli Manning threw for 279 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
