Giants Lose NFC Wild Card Game to Green Bay, 38-13
The New York Giants’ season came to an end Sunday evening as they lost to Green Bay at Lambeau Field, 38-13.
The Giants had made it to the playoffs on a wild card berth. marking the first time Big Blue had played in the postseason since 2011. Unfortunately, Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay were just too much in the second half.
New York actually played well in the first quarter. They had a 6-0 lead at one point and were able to pressure Rodgers before he came alive late in the second quarter.
Rodgers connected with Randall Cobb on a miraculous Hail Mary to put Green Bay up 14-6 at the end of the first half.
The Packers would ride this momentum into the second half.
Rodgers picked apart the Giants secondary in the second half, eventually throwing for 362 yards and four touchdowns on the day.
Odell Beckham Jr. was not a factor at all as he dropped several catches, including one potential touchdown.
For the Giants, and first year coach Ben McAdoo, it was a good season that leaves a lot of promise for the future. They finished 11-5 on the regular season.
Green Bay will face the Number #1 NFC seed Dallas in Dallas next Sunday.
