The New York Giants were definitely seen as the underdogs coming into their game with the undefeated Green Bay Packers. New York didn't play like they were intimidated by the Packers' success early. The Giants first drive went 79 yards in just 1:36 for a touchdown. Sixty-seven yards of the drive was on Travis Beckum's 67-yard reception. Beckum twisted and shook his way past the last two Green Bay defenders for the touchdown:
Eli Manning made a great throw over the Packers cornerback to Beckum who did the rest of the work for the opening score of the game. Manning was 2/2 on the first drive of the game. His first pass was for 7 yards to Ahmad Bradshaw. Bradshaw also had a 5-yard run before the pass to Beckum.
