Packers trail, 7-0, following one quarter at MetLife

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on November 17, 2013 – 3:58 pm

131117-in-game-updates-1-300EAST RUTERFORD, NJ–The Packers trailed the Giants, 7-0, following a quarter of action at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

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.

    Capers really doing a great job again. Can’t get the D off the field. Two three and outs in the first qt. WOW

    We will not win another football game until AR comes back. He should hold out next season for a zillion dollars — he apparently covers over the fact the rest of this team and coaching staff and just not very good.

    Great Red Zone play calling again, MM.

    What will Rodgers do for our D??????

    What is going on?

  6. By Jeff on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    I can’t watch this horrible defense anymore. As long as we have Capers this is what we’ll get

    Possession time at 17 to 7. Same old problem.

    NYG should go no matter the distance on 4th down the way defense is playing

    No Defense – No chance Can’t talk Rodgers with this level of defense What is WRONG????

    One word for our D – SOFT

    2 years now: When will the Capers fiasco be terminated??? Pitiful.

    Wow…this defense is SO sorry. And to think, this has been our defense for three seasons and it hasn’t gotten a bit better. Wow.

    Finally, an INT!

    It really hurts to watch this game today. Usually I at least have some hope, but today I just don’t feel there is any at all. I think the defense has packed it in for the season.

    Having flashbacks to 80’s Packers’ games.

    Did that actually happen?

    welcome back Tramon

    Packers bailed out by an awful throw by Eli. Very lucky not to be down 17-3.

    Nice to see a pick for a change. Hard to get excited though when the offense sucks in the red zone.

    I subscribed to players not play mentality, but now I think EVERYONE (defensive coaches and players) need to go. Derek, sorry to break your bubble, but that was all Elli

    Sal D .. “what will Rodgers do for our D??????” ….. he puts enough points on the board to cover up a defense that is lackimg. That’s what he does for our defense.

  22. By Chris on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    Bring out Flynn!!!!!

  23. By Sal D on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    O line looks great don’t they. We might need more guys to play QB with this line

  24. By Jeff on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    Please get Newhouse out of the line up – why not Sherod???

  25. By Harvester on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    Sherod is injured, I think

  26. By Chad on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    This whole team, minus Rodgers…is awful. When Rodgers went down, I remember McCarthy saying something about the rest of the team having a chance to step up, but what i’ve seen since that injury is not very uplifting. Something needs to change…I mean REALLY change with our defense after this season.

    Need to let Tolzien throw more on first and second down. Well, at least we can catch up on our Gilligan’s Island reruns during the game!

  28. By Chad on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    And when I say “minus Rodgers”, I don’t mean he’s the only good player…I mean without him in the lineup, the Packers look very mediocre.

  29. By Derek on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    well all things considered down by 4 not bad

  30. By Derek on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    time for Flacco comeback drive, I believe Packers only playoff chance is winning the division

    Pretty sure my local high school could put up 55 on the packers pathetic defense

  32. By Chris on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    Pathetic!! It takes the entire defense to take one guy down!!!

  33. By Steve on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    Nothing but BAD D Soooooo disappointing

  34. By Bill on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    Vic, sorry but I can not contain my disappointment with the defense. The line can not stop the run and the backs do not seem to shut down any receiver.

  35. By Jeff on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    This defense is pathetic!

  36. By Chris on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    Pull Tolzien NOW!!!!!!

  37. By Scott on Nov 17, 2013 | Reply

    Defense is get bulldozed by the Giants. Cant believe how the RBs are running over our whole D……takes 3-4 guys to bring down. that is just wrong. Flynn needs to play next week if we want to win. Simple as that.

    Vikings are next.
