The Cardinals win, 26-7. The Giants fall to 5-8. The Cardinals are 7-6. [Full recap]
Three more for Arizona: A 30-yard Mike Nugent field goal made the score 26-7 with 2:41 to play.
Cardinals stretch lead: A 34-yard Mike Nugent field goal stretched the Arizona lead to 23-7 with 12:38 to play. The Cardinals went 34 yards in 8 plays, taking 3:01 off the clock. The Giants have reached must-score time.
Giants get on the board: The Giants answered the Cardinals with a quick-strike, 7-play, 75-yard drive to make it 20-7 with 5:43 left in the third quarter. A 39-yard pass from Daniel Jones to Golden Tate put the ball at the 1-yard line, and Dion Lewis scored on the next play.
Cardinals up 20-0: The Cardinals went 77 yards in 11 plays with the opening possession of the second half to take a 20-0 lead. Kenyon Drake finished the drive with a 1-yard dive.
Cardinals lead, 13-0, at halftime: Arizona still took a 13-0 lead to the locker room. The Giants have only 58 yards and 4 first downs. Daniel Jones is 6 of 12 for 44 yards and has fumbled twice.
13-0 Arizona: A fumbled kickoff return by Dion Lewis gave Arizona the ball at the Giants’ 21-yard line. Four plays later, Kyler Murray found a leaping Dan Arnold for a 7-yard touchdown that gave Arizona a 13-0 lead with 6:59 left in the first half.
Another Arizona field goal: A Mike Nugent 37-yard field goal stretched Arizona’s lead to 6-0 with 8:24 left in the first half. The Cardinals are 0 for 3 in the red zone, and have come away with only two field goals despite spending most of the first half in Giants territory.
Arizona takes 3-0 lead: After a 24-yard punt return by Christian Kirk gave Arizona the ball at the Giants’ 38-yard line, Arizona ended up settling for a 34-yard Mike Nugent field goal with 6:30 left in the first quarter. That’s two drives starting deep in Giants’ territory and only three point for the Cardinals.
Cardinals stopped at goal line: Former Giant Markus Golden strip-sacked Daniel Jones on the Giants’ first possession, giving Arizona first-and-goal at the Giants’ 9-yard line. The Giants’ defense held, though. On fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line, James Bradberry knocked away a pass intended for Keesean Johnson.

Still some pre-game obstacles to clear but the expectation is that Blake Martinez will be able to play Sunday vs Arizona. Martinez (back) is questionable for the contest. #Giants— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) December 13, 2020
The New York Giants (5-7) seek to extend their winning streak to five games and to maintain first place in the NFC East on Sunday when the host the 6-6 Arizona Cardinals at MetLife Stadium (1 p.m. ET, FOX). The Giants are 3-point underdogs despite being at home.
Quarterback Daniel Jones missed last week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks with a hamstring injury, but is expected to play. Two key Giants defenders are uncertain. Inside linebacker Blake Martinez left that game with a back injury is also questionable. Cornerback Darnay Holmes [knee] is considered a game-time decision. [Full injury report]
The Giants have won four straight and are coming off their biggest victory of the season, a 17-12 upset of the Seahawks. The Cardinals have lost four of their last five.
