Well this is pretty unbelievable—in a game that was supposedly going to be decided by the offenses, the New York Giants and New England Patriots are tied 0-0 at halftime.
It’s been an impressive showing by both defenses, but perhaps more so by the Giants considering how explosive Tom Brady and the Patriots are.
It’s pretty incredible what the Giants are doing considering they only have one sack on Brady. If you told me this game would be scoreless at half, I would have expected the Giants to have at least five sacks.
However, a combination of inside pressure, good coverage, and the occasional dropped pass by the Patriots has kept the Giants in this game.
What is annoying about this is the fact that the Giants have not been able to get it going against the league’s worst defense.
Six of the seven quarterbacks that have faced the Patriots this season have thrown for over 300 yards, and right now Eli is a pedestrian 8/18 for 71 yards.
The main culprit has been the offensive line, who’ve provided zero protection all game. If they want any chance of winning this game it has to start up front.
Come back after the game for a full recap.
