Giants Hold On, Win 27-24

That’s not a win you want to scream about, but hey, a win’s a win, as the Giants beat the Bills 27-24.

Giants started off the scoring on a 1 yard Ahmad Bradshaw touchdown run. Just six seconds later, the Bills tied it on a 80 yard touchdown run by Fred Jackson. The Bills followed that up with a 60 yard touchdown pass to Naaman Roosevelt. Lawrnece Tynes hit a field goal to make it 14-10. Ahmad Bradshaw added another one yard TD run to make it 17-14. As the half ended, the Bills added a field goal to tie it up at 17.

Ahmad Bradshaw started the third off with another one yard touchdown, his third of the day. Stevie Johnson tied the game in the 4th on a nine yard touchdown catch. Giants added a field goal late to take the lead

Other than the two big plays, the Giants defense was pretty good. Good pressure. Both interceptions  by Webster were  huge. They had trouble with Fred Jackson, but then again, who hasn’t. I love the effort to play tighter defense. Shows some of the heart that has been lacking.

I think this might have been the best the offense has played all year. Eli Manning was fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. Jake Ballard stepped up and was great. Ahmad Bradshaw had 3 touchdowns. They were methodical, they moved the ball down the field really well, kept the Bills, for the most part, off the field.

It wasn’t pretty, but they pulled it off. Nice win heading into the bye.
