The Giants took a 7-0 lead on a 26-yard pass from Eli Manning to Rueben Randall with 5:34 to play in the first quarter. It capped a five-play, 42-yard drive. One of the big plays in the drive was a third-and-five run by Andre Brown that gained 10 yards and a first down at the Packers 27-yard line. Micah Hyde was in coverage on the Manning-to-Randall touchdown play.
On the Giants’ next possession, Manning completed a 30-yard pass to Victor Cruz to move the Giants to the Packers 45-yard line. The Giants faced a fourth-and-inches at the Packers 36 and Brandon Jacobs burst through a big hole over left guard for a first down at the 31. That’s where the ball was when the quarter ended.
Packers fans got good news shortly after kickoff: Pittsburgh rallied to beat the Lions, who are now 6-4. With a win, the Packers would move into a first-place tie.
