The New York Giants trail the Cardinals 17-14 at halftime.

The Giants won the opening coin toss and, of course, elected to defer and give the Cardinals the ball to start the game.

The game got off to about as poor a start for the Giants as was possible. The Giants’ defense proved unable to slow down Arizona’s defense leading to a methodical 75-yard drive for a touchdown to start the game. The Cardinals’ defense then got their first interception of the year to end the Giants’ opening drive, which lead to a quick second touchdown for Arizona.

The Giants were able to finally get some traction in the second quarter, thanks to some good play by Saquon Barkley and Golden Tate, not to mention a great touchdown throw from Daniel Jones. The Giants’ special teams came through after a sloppy possession by the Cardinals’ offense to block a punt and recover for a touchdown to bring them within one score. Michael Thomas blocked an Andy Lee punt in the end zone and Elijhaa Penny recovered for the score.
