The New York Giants did two things in the first quarter of their game against the Green Bay Packers that they have essentially failed to do in the first quarter of the season.

First, they got a turnover, an interception by Janoris Jenkins. The other, they got the ball to Odell Beckham Jr. after just eight targets in the first four first quarters of the season — none last week. Unfortuantely, other than a nice catch-and-run by Will Tye, Beckham was the Giants’ only receiving threat.

On defense, the Giants struggled to get pressure for most of the half. The Giants defensive ends played hard, but were largely unable to separate from blockers. Towards the end of the half, however, the Giants’ pass rush finally started to leak through the Packers’ offensive line and the pressure forced sloppy play from Aaron Rodgers. The result was Janoris Jenkins’ second interception.

Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suffered a groin injury which has had him on and off the field while Eli Apple is OUT with a groin injury.

The Giants will get the ball to start the second half, can they finally get the offense to function?

Use this as your open thread for the second half.
