Giants 10, Jets 7: Second-half open thread

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Giants-Jets second-half open thread.

The New York Giants lead the New York Jets, 10-7, at halftime of Saturday's MetLife Bowl at Metlife Stadium.

It's been an ugly half for the Giants on offense. They went 1-for-7 on third down and 0-for-1 on fourth down, failing to turn a first-and-goal at the Jets' 4-yard line into points late in the first half.

The Giants opened the scoring on their first play from scrimmage, with running back David Wilson exploding off left tackle for an 84-yard run.

The Jets responded with an eight-play, 86-yard drive aided by Giants' penalties on four consecutive plays. Geno Smith hit Ben Obumano for a 22-yard score with 9:08 remaining in the first quarter to cap the drive.

Giants' safety Stevie Brown was injured late in the first quarter when he intercepted a Geno Smith pass. He collapsed during the return and went down holding his left knee. Cronerback Jayron Hosley was also injured, suffering a sprained ankle.

After Brown's injury the Giants took over the ball at the Jets' 23-yard line. Their struggling offense went only one yard in four plays before Josh Brown hit a 40-yard field goal to give the Giants a 10-7 lead with 14:50 left in the half.

Brown missed a 53-yard field goal attempt later in the quarter, an effort that was wide left and possibly a touch short.

Eli Manning went only 8-for-20 for 83 yards. David Wilson ran five times for 92 yards, 84 on his touchdown run.

The Giants intercepted Jets' rookie quarterback Geno Smith three times in the first half.
