New York Giants Offense Comes Up Short Against The Green Bay Packers

Safety net Beckham makes nice for a change

Green Bay extended its lead to 14-3 on a 29-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Davante Adams.

Manning completed just 18 out of 35 passes for 199 yards and one touchdown. Lang said. "As an offense, we need to raise our level play up to match them at least consistently, because it's not really a good feeling when you go out there and our defense is holding them to nine points and you get down to the end of the game and it's still a seven-point game". Along the way, they mixed the run and pass, changed personnel groups on every play and kept the Giants defense off-balance.

Green Bay's defense was able to hold NY to just three points on those two turnovers, and despite missing both of their starting corners, held the Giants to six points in the first half. The pass rush was there. We've played some good teams the past two weeks, and we've got to take a hard look at the tape and get better from it.

On the next play, Manning was sacked by rookie Kyler Fackrell and fumbled, with rookie Kenny Clark recovering to set up Mason Crosby's 44-yard field goal to make it 17-6 at the half. "So that was a big part of our success", he added.

That theme was repeated Sunday night in the Packers' 23-16 triumph over the New York Giants.

The Packers went three-and-out on each of its first two possessions of the second half before putting together a field-goal drive to make it 20-9, then settled for another field goal with 6:39 left in the game to make it 23-9.

It was ugly. Manning had a chronic case of happy feet, then the Giants blamed it again on Cover 2, a basic defense that has been around for years.

"We didn't make enough throws or contested catches. We have to execute in the passing game as well as we're doing up front in the run game". They're now 3-1, a half-game behind the first place Cowboys.

"Smile and have fun", he said of his approach in this game, a 23-16 loss to the Packers. Their backs weren't against the wall, but they played like it, which history tells us they need to do to beat the Giants.

- Green Bay's offense was considerably quieter in the second quarter, with two drives ending in a punt and another ending with Rodgers' second interception. Coach Mike McCarthy threw different wrinkles at the Giants by using different personnel combinations on the opening drive, instead of sticking with the usual three-wide receiver combination of Nelson, Randall Cobb and Adams, with Eddie Lacy in the backfield.

NEW YORK GIANTS: Brown kicked a 41-yard field goal, 1:51.

The Packers momentarily took a 14-0 lead, but Rodgers' touchdown pass to Cobb was overturned by offsetting penalties - 12 men on the field by the Giants and an illegal shift on thePackers that left Rodgers fuming.

Cobb appeared to be OK on the sideline after taking a hit to the back of his head or neck on a 13-yard catch on third-and-10 with about 2 minutes left. But the way he was running, his second consecutive 100-yard game seemed like a forgone conclusion.

Beckham finished with five catches for 56 yards and a late touchdown but wasn't a major factor even though the Giants tried to force the ball to him all night.

Little did the Packers - and Randall - know at the time they'd be trying to slay that monster Sunday night without their two top cornerbacks.

Rodgers' unique ability to escape pressure, buy time and throw flawless balls on the run is a huge asset for the Packers, but an offense can't run exclusively on scramble drills. Playing from behind most of the game, the Giants relied heavily on Eli Manning, who was sacked three times, and struggled throughout.
