Packers 38, Giants 35: Aaron Rodgers Too Much At The End

In the end, Aaron Rodgers was just too good. The New York Giants did just about everything they could Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, but in the end Rodgers and Green Bay had the ball last, and that spelled doom for the Giants in a 38-35 loss that, really, was a tremendous football game.

The Packers are 12-0 and the Giants are now 6-6, with a four-game losing streak.

The Giants fought back from an 11-point second-half deficit to tie the game, 35-35 with 58 seconds to play. Eli Manning hit Hakeem Nicks with a two-yard touchdown pass to pull the Giants within two. The two-point conversion came on a shotgun draw run by D.J. Ware. Yes, Giants fans, a shotgun draw.

Rodgers then took only two plays to get Green Bay into field goal range. The first was a 23-yard pass to Jermichael Finley barely beyond the reach of Giants' linebacker Jacquian Williams. The second was a beautifully thrown 27-yard pass to Jordy Nelson, locked up one-on-one with Will Blackmon.

Hard, really, to be terribly upset by this game. The Giants played tremendously, but in the end the Packers showed why they are Super Bowl champions and have won 18 straight games. Oh. and the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Arizona Cardinals in overtime, 19-13.

Much more later, and in the morning.
