Giants Beat Patriots 24-20, Deja Vu
The Giants have made it a habit to beat the New England Patriots at the last second. Giants win again in what was dubbed a rematch of Super Bowl XLII, 24-20.
Another game between the New York Giants and New England Patriots, and another phenomenal last second catch to give the Giants the win. Once again the G-Men have driven the dagger into the hearts of Tom Brady, his team and the Patriot faithful. Giants win 24-20.
The first half of the game was pretty uneventful, but both teams came out firing on all cylinders in the second half. That’s not all that surprising being that both teams are considered to be second half teams. Both Manning and Brady led their teams down the field in the third and fourth quarters. It got very exciting at the end, and New England went up 20-17 with just a 1:36 left in the game.
You couldn’t count out the Giants though. They made good on some big time mistakes by the Patriot defense, including a huge pass interference call which put the Giants on the Patriot 1 yard line. Eli Manning would then hook up with Jake Ballard for the big catch and game winning TD. That left just 30 seconds left, which wasn’t enough for Brady and company who had already used all their time outs. Tough loss for New England, big win for the Giants who continue to silence offseason critics.
