Giants Vs. Packers Halftime Score: New York Leads 20-10

The New York Giants lead the Green Bay Packers 20-10 after the first half of play at Lambeau Field.

After the Jennings non-fumble ruling from the first quarter was not overturned, the Packers scored a touchdown quickly in the second quarter on an Aaron Rodgers' pass to John Kuhn. Green Bay then tried an onside kick but the Giants recovered it.

The Giants then didn't exploit the short field. After their drive stalled, Lawrence Tynes' 40-yard field goal was blocked by Green Bay linebacker Brad Jones.

The teams traded possessions after the blocked field goal. Green Bay punted after reaching New York's half of the field. The Giants moved to the Green Bay 34-yard line before Eli Manning was intercepted at the 13-yard line. The Packers were driving again after the interception before John Kuhn fumbled it away. This one was a clear fumble that was correctly given to the Giants:


After that turnover, the Giants drove into the redzone but the rushing game's issues showed up again. New York couldn't punch the ball in on the ground and threw an incomplete pass before settling for a field goal to retake the lead, 13-10.

The Giants extended their lead following a long run play as the half was winding down. On the final play of the half, Eli Manning's hail mary pass was caught in the endzone by Hakeem Nicks.


The Lambeau Field crowd sat in stunned silence after the score. We'll be back after halftime.
