Giants Vs. Packers Halftime Score: Giants Trail, 21-17

The New York Giants trail the unbeaten Green Bay Packers, 21-17, at halftime of their game Sunday at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

The Giants 10-7 lead after the first quarter was quickly erased when Eli Manning was pressured and made a bad decision to force the ball to his running back on a checkdown. Clay Matthews anticipated the throw and broke on it and returned the interception 38 yards for a touchdown to give the Packers a 14-10 lead to begin the second quarter.


Chase Blackburn who was just re-signed by the Giants earlier this week intercepted Aaron Rodgers to spark the Giants quick 12-yard touchdown drive to retake the lead 17-14. After the Blackburn interception, Manning found Hakeem Nicks for 11 yards before Brandon Jacobs pounded the ball in from 1 yard out.

The Packers responded with a time consuming 80-yard touchdown drive to retake the lead 21-17. Aaron Rodgers finished it off by finding a wide open Donald Driver for a 13-yard touchdown pass.

The Giants were driving at the end of the half until Clay Matthews hit Manning while he attempted a throw. After a review, the play was confirmed to be a sack and a forced fumble which was recovered by the Packers. Green Bay was unable to turn the fumble into points when their field goal attempt was missed right before halftime.
