Halftime Report: 14-14

The Giants started off the game with QB Eli Manning hitting WR Hakeem Nicks for a long, deep 68-yard catch. The result of the drive was QB Eli Manning scrambling for a two-yard touchdown run. The Redskins countered with a Tim Hightower run, which, for those who asked, should have had a holding call on that play. Manning was able to hit WR Mario Manningham for two long passes, and WR Hakeem Nicks on two quick passes. Brandon Jacobs had a three solid runs along with a great block which led to a RB Ahmad Bradshaw touchdow. The Giants secondary has been shaky, though. CB Aaron Ross got burned on deep pass to Jabar Gaffney. He then lost sight of the ball and WR Anthony Armstrong snatched the ball for a 6-yard scoring pass.

Hot Players:

Brandon Jacobs/Ahmad Bradshaw – The tandem has done a solid job. They’ve accounted for 61 yards on 12 carries.

Hakeem Nicks – Is it time for Nicks to blossom into the star he can be? I think so. Nicks has 4 catches for 97 yards. Manning to Nicks has been lethal thus far when they connect.

Michael Boley – Boley has three tackles, but has kept containtment on two plays forcing errant Grossman throws. He’s been solid.

Cold Players:

Punt Coverage Unit – They made a nice play on the first Steve Weatherford punt, but lost coverage and containment again which led to a long 24-yard return.

Aaron Ross – Got turuned around and let up a deep ball, then lost track and let up a touchdown.
