Very nice game by the Giants yesterday. Everyone considered it a must-win. It was to be a “statement game”, if the Giants wanted any real chance at making the playoffs, and that’s exactly what it was. The game wasn’t a blowout by any means, but the Giants played pretty well on all three sides of the ball, highlighted by the two longest plays for the Giants all year. As seen in the pictures above, the first RB Brandon Jacobs taking a screen pass in the third quarter from Eli Manning 74 yards for a touchdown. I loved seeing that truck of a man barreling down the field all the way in for the score. The other huge play was Domenik Hixon’s 79-yard punt return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, the score that was the nail-in-the-coffin, providing the Giants with a vital win.

The win puts the Giants just one game back from the Cowboys and Eagles (Giants 7-5 v. Cowboys/Eagles 8-4). It’s a whole new division now. Six more catches for Steve Smith, giving him second place in WR catches this year. It was great to see Mathius Kiwanuka knock the ball loose and see Osi Umenyiora scoop it up, especially after Osi had all the bad press this past week.

Seeing those guys celebrate just warms the cockles of my heart.
