Giants win surprisingly low scoring game

I’m elated that the Giants beat the Packers, but this game reminded me of the Redskins game in that the offense should have put more points on the board. The defense did a marvelous job holding Farve and the Packers scoreless in the first half:

Neither team did much offensively in a scoreless first half, the first time since Oct. 6, 1980, that the teams had gone into their locker rooms at Lambeau Field without any points.

Once again the Giants were able to move the ball but unable to score touchdowns. In addition, Steve Christie was unable to kicka fieeld goal, going 0-3. They don’t talk about all the mistakes on Giants.com’s game review but it seems clear enough:

Neither team scored in the first half, which was particularly frustrating to the Giants, who had better chances to get into the end zone and outplayed the Packers, enjoying advantages of 147-98 in total yards and 10-5 in first downs.

The Packers turned the ball over three times, but like in the Redskins game the Giants offense seemed unable to take adavntage. The Giants defense kept coming up big, stopping Green Bay repeatedly, then knocking Farve out of the game (William Joseph hit). Farve cam back in and threw a TD, but then sat out the rest of the game (something he really didn’t want to do) and Green Bay was done scoring.
