The New York Giants Proved They’re Better Than New England

Is it safe to say, Eli Manning and the New York Giants are better than the New England Patriots?

By Matt Noonan 

Sunday’s matchup between the New England Patriots and New York Giants was déjà vu all over again. It was Super Bowl XLII – part two, and once again, quarterback Eli Manning outplayed the talented Tom Brady, as the Giants ousted the Patriots, 24-20.

“Well, not much to say there. This was a tough game,” said Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, via the team’s website. “We had our chances; we just came up a little short.”

Indeed, it wasn’t an ordinary game, but instead, a contest that featured two scoreless quarters, and one 15-minute period of complete chaos.

Brady, somehow managed to drive his team down the field late in the fourth quarter and give the Patriots a four-point lead before Manning replayed Super Bowl images in every New Englanders mind by connecting with not Plaxico Burress, but instead, tight end Jake Ballard with 15-seconds remaining in the end zone to give New York the lead for good.

“You always want to get the win if possible, but fortunately enough, we made some big plays, we got into a situation where we could be aggressive and go for the touchdown,” said Manning, via the team’s website.

This win stinks, especially if you’re a Patriots fan, but for those Big Blue supporters, once again, it proves that New York was probably the better team four-years ago. However, we’ll never know if Super Bowl XLII was a fluke or if the Giants truly did have a better game plan than the Patriots, but at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, Tom Coughlin’s bunch looked a lot better than Belichick’s crew, who snapped a 20-game home winning streak, as well as lost their first two back-to-back contest since the ’09 season.

“We won a game under difficult circumstances and that’s all I am concerned about. No comparisons,” said Coughlin, via the team’s website. “As I said, we have a long road ahead of us, but if we can come together and play like this. You know, help and support each other, and stay away from the turnovers and we get ourselves in a position where we are, to some extent, stopping the run. I don’t know what the numbers are again, but I thought we did a little better of a job at that [on Sunday].”

All in all, this particular win should certainly propel the Giants going forward, who’ll be facing the league’s top NFC dogs over the course of the next five weeks, and with at least three of four wins against Dallas, Green Bay, New Orleans and San Francisco, it might help boost the team’s moral, and give them some momentum heading into late December and January.

New York is a talented team, both one offense and defense, so again, if they can take Sunday’s momentum and use it going forward, then it’s possible that we might see a repeat of their epic ’07 playoff run.

NFL Week Seven – Afternoon Scoreboard

By Brian Willwerth 

JETS 27, CHARGERS 21 – My Game of the Day comes from the Meadowlands.  Trailing by eleven points at halftime, the home team scored 17 unanswered points in the second half to rally past San Diego. Plaxico Burress was the go-to guy. He only caught four passes all day, but three of them were for touchdowns, including the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter. The Jets are a perfect [4-0] at home, [4-3] overall, and the Chargers are now [4-2].

BROWNS 6, SEAHAWKS 3 – Here’s a candidate for most boring game of the season so far. But Cleveland will take it. Phil Dawson kicked two field goals of over 50 yards for the Browns’ only points. He had two other kicks blocked, but in the end it didn’t matter.  Cleveland is back to [.500].

FALCONS 23, LIONS 16 – What a huge win for Atlanta. Michael Turner ran for 122 yards at Ford Field. Matt Ryan threw for 218 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. He was knocked out of the game briefly in the second half, but did return. Detroit has lost two in a row after winning its first five games.

TEXANS 41, TITANS 7 – This was blowout city in Nashville. It was the Arian Foster show. He accounted for 234 yards of total offense and three touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving) and now Houston is back in first place in the AFC South.

BRONCOS 18, DOLPHINS 15 (OT) Tim Tebow did nothing for the first 55 minutes of this game in Miami. Then everything changed on a dime. Trailing 15-0, he threw a touchdown pass to put Denver on the board. Then after the Broncos recovered an onside kick, Tebow marched his team down the field for another score, plus the game-tying two-point conversion with 17-seconds to play. In overtime, the winless Dolphins fumbled it away, and Matt Prater kicked a 52-yard field goal to win it.

BEARS 24, BUCCANEERS 18 – In London, Matt Forte ran wild for 145 yards and a touchdown for Chicago. The Bears held off a late rally by Tampa Bay in the fourth quarter. Bucs’ quarterback Josh Freeman was intercepted four times. After traveling overseas, both teams will have their byes next week.

PANTHERS 33, REDSKINS 20 – If we’re talking about a Carolina victory, we must be talking about Cam Newton. In Charlotte, Newton threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score against Washington. ‘Skins quarterback John Beck threw for 279 yards and a touchdown.

PACKERS 33, VIKINGS 27 – This was one of the better games of the day, and a lot closer than a lot of people expected. Aaron Rodgers threw for 335 yards and three touchdowns, which helped Green Bay remain unbeaten. Minnesota rookie quarterback Christian Ponder threw two touchdown passes in his first career start, but was also picked off twice.

COWBOYS 37, RAMS 7 – It was a record-setting performance for Dallas rookie running back DeMarco Murray. He ran for a franchise-record 253 yards, including a 91-yard touchdown run, as the Cowboys won easily at home. St. Louis remains winless on the season.

STEELERS 32, CARDINALS 20 – This was a rematch of the 2009 Super Bowl, but Pittsburgh did not need a last-second score to pull this one out. Ben Roethlisberger threw three touchdown passes as the Steelers rolled before a crowd full of Terrible Towel-waving fans in Glendale, Arizona. The Cardinals have lost five in a row.

CHIEFS 28, RAIDERS 0 – In Oakland, Kendrick Lewis and Brandon Flowers each returned interceptions for touchdowns as the defending AFC West champs got back to the .500 mark. New Raiders’ quarterback Carson Palmer did not start, but did see action, yet it didn’t matter.
