Hodgins, who went in motion on the play, was traveling 15.14 mph when the ball was snapped. When DeVito led go of the pass, the quarterback was traveling 15.75 mph, the 5th-fastest speed on a TD pass this season.#GBvsNYG | #NYGiants pic.twitter.com/vvQIxAUZLL
The play below helped set up the score:
Packers close the gap.
A muffed punt that hit Bobby McCain of the Giants set Green Bay up at the Giants’ 14-yard line. The Packers could only manage a field goal, though, to pull within 14-13.
Giants take 14-10 lead.
A fumbled punt by Green Bay’s Keisean Nixon was recovered by Benton Whitley of the Giants at the Packers’ 31-yard line. A 26-yard run by quarterback Tommy DeVito put the ball at the 1-yard line, and Saquon Barkley cashed in with a 1-yard run to give the Giants the lead with 11:22 left in the third quarter.
Packers take 10-7 lead right before halftime.
Giants tie the game at 7-7.
An eight-play, 75-yard drive helped the Giants knot the score. Tommy DeVito completed a 14-yard pass on third down, then ran 10 yards for a first down. Wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson had a 32-yard run, and Saquon Barkley finished the drive with a 5-yard scoring run.
Packers grab 7-0 lead.
The Giants started with the ball on Green Bay’s 32-yard line and still came up empty.
Can the 4-8 Giants upset the 6-6 Packers, who currently hold the seventh and final NFC playoff spot? If they can, the Giants would be within one game of what would still be an unlikely playoff berth.
The Giants have won two straight games with the unlikely rise of undrafted Tommy DeVito at quarterback. The Packers have won three straight.
This will be the Giants’ fifth prime time game of the season. They are 0-4 and have been outscored 113-38 in those games.
Defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence (hamstring) and tight end Daniel Bellinger (illness) will play for the Giants.
