Giants 37, Packers 20: Pro Football Focus Weekly Review

New, comments

Let's take a quick look at the Pro Football Focus numbers from the New York Giants' 37-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers Sunday in an NFC Divisional Round playoff game.

OFFENSE

Eli Manning (+6.3)
Hakeem Nicks (+3.2)
Victor Cruz (+2.3)
Ahmad Bradshaw (+1.9)
Mario Manningham (+1.8)
Chris Snee (-1.5)
Kareem McKenzie (-2.1)
Bear Pascoe (-2.5)
David Diehl (-3.1)
Kevin Boothe (-6.0)

Valentine's View: It's a miracle that the Giants do what they do on offense with an offensive line this porous. David Baas was -1.0, giving all of the linemen negative grades. Manning makes this line look at least decent with the way he slides around, and the way he constantly gets the Giants into running plays that have a chance.

DEFENSE

Linval Joseph (+2.1)
Chase Blackburn (+1.6)
Michael Boley (+1.5)
Justin Tuck (+1.2)
Osi Umenyiora (+1.1)
Kenny Phillips (-1.1)
Corey Webster (-1.2)
Chris Canty (-1.4)
Dave Tollefson (-1.5)
Mathias Kiwanuka (-2.5)

Valentine's View: Tuck played better than his single tackle would indicate. Kiwanuka was barely on the field, playing only 22 snaps as the Giants went with more three-safety looks and with Jacquian Williams for pass coverage.
