    Giants

    It's the Giants. More is being made of this game than it merits. The Giants are a borderline playoff team, maybe. We're us. Even if we lose, and I do not expect us to, all it does is possibly play around with playoff seedings.

    Our inactives include Jamie Collins (still down with a virus), Marcus Cannon, Sebastian Vollmer, Tre Jackson, and Trey Flowers.

    For the Giants, notables are Victor Cruz, Prince Amukamura, and Justin Pugh.

    We have Ed Hochuli for our ref. Ed's always been one of my fave refs. Nantz and Simms have the call. The weather is seasonal for New Jersey. 50s, sun, with limited chance of participation.

    As is typical, our O line is wrecked with injuries. But, I'm confident that we'll still find the ways to protect TB12. And the Giants are terrbile this year against slot recievers and tight ends. So, Jules and Gronk should have good days.

    Go Pats!

    Pats P1: Start at the 20. Great opening drive. We start with Blount getting two carries for 8. 3rd and 2 is coverted with an 11 yard pass to Danny. Blount gets two more touches for 6 more yards. Then we go to the air to Jules (5), LaFell (12), and Blount (10). Blount gets a 3 yard carry and Brady misses Jules to give us 3rd and 7. With no one open, Brady takes off and gets 10! A pass to Blount gets 10 more and a first and goal at the 4. The Giants are called for 12 men, moving the ball to the 2. Blount gets 1 on first down. On second, Brady finds Chandler in the back of the endzone. 7-0 Pats. 6:40 left in the first.

    Giants P1: Start at the 9 after holding on the return. Two play drive. After Jennings gets 4, Eli finds OBJ for an 87 yard TD. Well done Giants. 7-7, 5:49 left in the first.

    It was a great pass. Eli put it right between Malcom Butler and Devon McCourty, and Butler misses a tackle, and Devon slips and OBJ takes it to the house.

    Pats P1: Start at the 20. Three and out. We go all pass, it didn't work. I'm a little shocked at the playcalling, given how well Blount ran the ball the first drive.

    Slater hurt on the punt tackle. Please don't be seriously hurt Mathew.

    Giants P2: Start at the 20 after an illegal block in the back on the return. Three and out.

    Pats P3: Start at the 30. We get back to moving the ball. Blount gets 3, then Brady finds Danny for 5. On 3rd and 2, Brady finds Jules and Edelman gets 30 yards! We then go to Chander, but the pass is high and incomplete. We call timeout before the next snap. We end the quarter with two passes to Jules. Both complete, and they gain 17 yards. Jules limps off the field after the second catch.

    We don't start the second well. Blount gets two, then Brady finds Gronk for 4. On 3rd and 4, Brady gets sacked. Gostkowski nails the FG. 10-7 Pats. 12:54 left in the half.

    Good news is that Slater is back. Bad news is that Jules is heading to the locker room.

    Giants P3: Start at the 20. They move the ball. After missing Shane Vereen twice, Eli finds Harris for 10. Vereen runs for 1, then Eli finds him for 11 and Harris for 12. Vereen runs for 3, the Williams gets dropped for a 1 yard loss. On 3rd and 8, Eli finds White for 28. And then...

    Chandler Jones with a strip! Justin Coleman with the recovery! Pats Ball!!

    Jules is questionable with a left foot injury.

    Pats P4: Start at the 16. Three and out.

    Giants P4: Start at the 46. Giants keep moving the ball. Darwka led the drive off with a 3 yard run. Eli passed to Tye for 6, then Darkwa had two carries for 9. Eli found Cunningham for 12. Darkwa ran for two, and after two incomplete passes they make a 37 yard FG. 10-10. 3:42 in the half.

    Pats P5: Start at the 19. We get three plays off before the warning. Brady to Danny for 8. Blount runs for 1 and on 3rd and 1, Brady finds Gronk for 12.

    After the warning, Brady finds Danny for 7. He throws to LaFell, but Hosley makes a great play to knock the ball down. We call timeout 2 before the 3rd and 3 play. Brady goes deep to Gronk, but the ball is knocked away. We punt.

    Giants P5: Start at the 27 after holding is called on Bolden. They throw. Eli finds Randle for 31. He goes to OBJ but Butler defends the pass. Tye then has a drop. On 3rd and 10, they go to Harris for 11, then call timeout 2. Eli finds Tye for 31. He goes down inside the 1. They call the last timeout. On first down, Eli throws high and incomplete to Tye. We call our last timeout. Eli finds Harris for a 1 yard TD. 17-10 Giants. 0:13 left in the half.

    Pats P6: Start at the 22. We kneel it and go to the locker room.

    I have to say this has been a disappointing half. We had a gameplan on the first drive that worked, and then Josh bailed on it. I don't know why. Jules injury also seems to have the air out of the offense. We need to use White or Bolden like we were using Lewis, to loosen them up some. Danny or JoJo or Dobson need to make a play, too.

    It's not over by any means, we definately need to play better in the second half. But, even if we lose, it's not win or go home. We'll be fine!

    BB has it right. He told Tracy Wolfson "Everyone" when she asked who needs to step up now that Jules is hurt. Jules is out for the game.

    Giants P6: Start at the 20. This is a drive that makes me angry. It starts of run heave. Jennings for 2. Eli finds Tye for 9, then Jennings get two more carries for 8. On 3rd and 2, Eli overthrows Vereen by at least 10 yards. And then...

    DPI Chung. A totally BS call. The ball was not anywhere near catchable and that is an element of PI.

    After they get bailed out by the refs. Eli goes to OBJ. Butler defends the pass. Hands to the face on Flowers gives the Giants 1st and 20. Vereen runs for 3, Eli for 10. On 3rd and 7 they go to OBJ and Butler knocks the ball down. And then...

    DPI Butler. This DPI is even less defensible than the first one. 21 more yards. A new first down.

    After the second bail out, Eli finds Shane for no gain. They get called for false start. Eli finds OBJ for 4, then misses Cunningham for a TD. They take the 38 yard FG. 20-10 Giants. 9:32 left in the third.

    I have no issues when a call is legit. I have not complained all year about calls against the Pats, but those PIs were wrong. Both of them. You can't call iffy DPIs. You can't call imaginary DPIs. They are the calls you have to be right on every single time.

    Pats P7: Start at the 20. Three and out.

    Giants P7: Start at the 44. 3 and out. We needed that. C'mon offense! Get us some points.

    Pats P8: Start at the Giants 7 after Danny Amendola has a great punt return. He slips at the very end of the run, and we had some great blocks on the return. We take advantage. Blount got 2. DRC was hurt on the play. On 2nd and goal, Brady goes to LaFell. It's incomplete. The Giants are called for DPI. I once more disagree on the call. I would have called holding.

    With the new 1st and goal from the 1, we feed Blount. It takes two plays, but he gets in! 20-17 Giants, 4:46 left in the third.

    Giants P8: Start at the 20. They extend the lead. Vereen runs for 1. Eli finds Randle for 13. Jennings gets 3. The Giants center, Richberg, is hurt on the play. The Giants are called for false start. Eli goes to White. Incomplete, DPI on Melvin for handfighting. Another miss by the refs.

    After the first down off of DPI, Jennings gets 5. Eli finds Randle for 7. Jennings gets 3. Eli misses passes to Harris and OBJ. They make a 53 yard FG to make it 23-17. :49 left in the quarter.

    4 DPIs called in the third. 3 on us, 1 on them. All four were incorrect calls.

    Pats P9: Start at the 20. We end the quarter on offense. Brady throws to Chandler on first down. Chandler is wide open and drops at least a 25 yard gain. Brady finds Gronk for 14. We end the quarter with a 4 yard run by Blount.

    The fourth starts with Brady under pressure. He fumbles, the Giants recover.

    Giants P9: Start at the Pats 31. Three and out. 13:31 left in the game.

    Pats P10: Start at the 14. We strike!!!! Brady to Danny for 6. Blount gets 4 and the first. Then GRONK!! 76 yards! TD!! 24-23 Pats!!!! 11:33 left.

    Giants P10: Start at the 20. Three and out. All three were incomplete passes to OBJ. 11:14 left.

    Pats P11: Start at the 19 after a block in the back on the return. Terrible drive. Brady finds Danny for 6. On second down, Brady fumbles, but Stork recovers. A 5 yard pass to White gets the first down. We go deep and find LaFell for 54 yards! We should have been in place to add to the lead.

    Brady finds Blount for no gain. Blount runs for 13, down to the 1. The next play, Blount goes in for the TD, but it comes back on holding on Andrews. That gaves us 1st and goal at the 11. JPP sacked Brady on the play, but the Giants were called for hand to the face. So, we had first and goal at the 6. Blount runs for 1, and then Brady is picked off at the 1.

    Giants P11: Start at the 3. They move the ball down the field. Jennings gets 3. Eli goes back to him for 6, then to OBJ for 9. Vereen runs for 8. Eli misses OBJ. Vereen gets 2 and the first down. Eli finds Jennings for 6, misses Jennings, finds Harris for 29. We call TO 1. Jennings runs for 5. We call TO2. Eli finds Harris for 18. They take TO 1 with first and goal at the 5.

    On the first down play, OBJ had a TD pass broken up by Butler. On second, Eli misses Harris. Two minute warning.

    3rd and goal after the warning. Manning goes down on his own at the 11. We call TO 3. They line up for the FG attempt. The 29 yard try is good. 26-24 Giants. 1:47 left in the game. We'll get the ball, needing just 3.

    Pats P12: Start at the 20.
    1st and 10: Brady throws deep to LaFell. It's almost intercepted by Landon Collins. Collins hurt on the play. 1:39 left.
    2nd and 10: Brady to LaFell, inc. 1:34 left.
    3rd and 10: Brady to LaFell, inc. 1:28 left.

    Why are we throwing deep. Move it down the field in smaller chunks. Here's the game.

    4th and 10: Brady to Danny, 12. 1:15 left.
    1st and 10: Brady to Gronk, 7
    2nd and 3: Brady to Dobson, 6. :42 left.
    1st and 10: Brady to Dobson, inc. :36
    2nd and 10: Brady to Danny, 10
    1st and 10: Brady to Dobson, inc. :19.
    2nd and 10: Brady to Danny, 9.
    3rd and 1: Spike
    4th and 1: 54 yard FG try.

    It's GOOD!!!

    27-26 PATS! 1 SECOND LEFT!!!

    And after a crazy kickoff, we win!!

    Wow. What can I say? Brady was careless, we lost Jules, we had a few defensive breakdowns. Ed saved them a few times. But, too many passes on thier last possession, and Dobson! and Danny and Steven coming up big at the end save us!

    Go PATS!
