Here is your second-half open thread with Giants leading, 10-6.

The New York Giants lead the Green Bay Packers, 10-6, at halftime. Here is your second-half open thread.

The Giants took a 7-0 lead with 5:34 left in the first quarter on a 26-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Rueben Randle. Randle set up the 5-play, 42-yard drive with a career-long 32-yard punt return.

The Giants stretched the lead to 10-0 on a 40-yard field goal by Josh Brown with 14:03 left in the second quarter. The field goal capped an 11-play, 56-yard drive that took 4:56.

Green Bay got on the board with 10:21 left in the half on a 24-yard Mason Crosby field goal. The field goal was set up by a 42-yard pass from Scott Tolzien to James Jones that put the ball at the New York 12-yard line.

The Giants missed an opportunity to widen their lead with 3:45 left in the half when Manning was intercepted on a pass intended for Louis Murphy. The wide receiver cut inside while Manning threw the ball outside and Tramon Williams intercepted. Manning and offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride were clearly irritated with Murphy.

Green Bay's Mason Crosby kicked a 57-yard field goal on the final play of the first half to make the score 10-6. The kick was the longest ever against the Giants.

Manning completed 15-of-23 passes for 161 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the first half.

Green Bay's Tolzien completed 7-of-11 for 131 yards.
