Don’t look now, but after starting their season with six straight losses, the New York Football Giants have won four games in a row. Big Blue’s latest victory, 27-13 over the Green Bay Packers, may have been their most complete game of the season and sets up an important clash with the Dallas Cowboys next week.
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul scored on a spectacular, leaping 24-yard fourth-quarter interception return and the resurgent New York Giants won their fourth game in a row with a 27-13 victory over the slumping and injured-riddled Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Both the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers have had their fair share of injuries this season. But in week 11 of the NFL regular season, that is to be expected. And while some key performers for both teams may not suit up on Sunday, one name stands out prominently on the injury list, quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers were in great shape a couple of weeks ago and it looked like Aaron Rodgers would put them in a position to challenge Seattle, San Francisco and Carolina in the NFC.
Two teams going in opposite directions. That would be the best way to summarize this week’s battle between the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers. The Giants started out the season with six straight losses, while the Packers won five of their first six games. Since then New York has reeled off three straight wins, and Green Bay has dropped two in a row. Will both streaks continue this week?
It certainly was not pretty, but at this point in the season, style points do not matter. The New York Giants played rope-a-dope with the Oakland Raiders, and running back Andre Brown delivered the knockout punch in New York’s 24-20 victory over the Silver and Black on Sunday in a windy MetLife Stadium.
Terrell Thomas returned an interception 65 yards to set up a go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run by fellow comebacker Andre Brown, and the New York Giants won their third straight game, 24-20 Sunday over Oakland.
A disappointing 2013 season came to a premature end for New York Giants halfback David Wilson yesterday. The second year player from Virginia Tech was placed on season-ending injured reserve by the G-men, who activated running back Andre Brown from the injured list as well. Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden sat out practice with a pulled hamstring and looks unlikely to play on Sunday.
Fresh off their bye week, the New York Giants play host to the visiting Oakland Raiders at the Meadowlands this week. New York, winners of two straight games, was off this past Sunday, but lost ground in the division standings, since all of the other NFC East teams won their games.
BYE-BYE, BYE-BYE, BABY, BYE-BYE That old joke about “bye” weeks got quite a workout in local football circles over the weekend. The New York Giants drew the bye, the bye was favored by seven. The […]
