The New York Giants played well against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, but the outcome of the game resulted in another loss for the New York Giants as they cling to faint playoff hopes. Despite the loss, which moves the Giants to a 6-6 overall record, New York didn’t lose any ground in the playoff hunt with Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta and Detroit all recording losses...
A fourth straight loss did little to dampen Antrel Rolleâs belief in the Giants. In fact, it may have made it stronger.

Grade the Giants' performance against the Packers
Although the New York Giants fell short of a victory against the Green Bay Packers, Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks pulled off an impressive one-handed catch against Charles Woodson.
The catch was so impressive that Woodson gave Nicks a little dap after it:
- Lawrence Tynes knocked through a 50-yard field goal with room to spare to get the Giants to within one point. Jake Ballard had a key catch along the sideline to keep the drive alive on a perfectly thrown pass from Manning. Brandon Jacobs had some tough runs early in the drive.
- Charles Woodson has left the game after a helmet-to-helmet collision with Ahmad Bradshaw.
New York Giants offensive lineman Stacy Andrews' season is over due to pulmonary embolisms in both of his lungs.

He’s completing 62 percent of his passes and has his team sitting at second place in the NFC East. He’s ranks eighth among active players in career passing touchdowns and beat the 2007 Patriots on a heroic comeback drive on the game’s biggest stage.
Pretty impressive resume...
The Giants responded to the challenge given to them by everyone infuriated by the way they played against the Saints on Monday night and showed buckets of fight against the Packers.
Unfortunately, fight alone isn't enough to beat a team as good as Green Bay is this season. The Giants were in the game until the final minutes, but they couldn't find a way to avoid a 38-35...
The Giants had to reshuffle their offensive line just hours before kickoff of yesterday’s 38-35 loss to the still-unbeaten Packers and the new look produced solid results.
The defeat was no fault of Kevin Boothe, who learned two hours before the game he would start at center, or Mitch...
