Takeaways: The Giants used their three-safety look the entire game, with Ryan Mundy, Will Hill and Antrel Rolle all playng every snap. As a result, Terrell Thomas was on the field for just one play. Interesting that Jacquian Williams (44 snaps) and Spencer Paysinger (51) played but Keith Rivers never took the field on defense. To be honest, I've been looking for that all season, and you wonder if it's a sign the Giants will move on without Rivers in 2014. Damontre Moore got 16 snaps, right in line with what he has been getting in recent weeks.
