Ravens 24, Giants 7: Second-half open thread

New, comments

Well, it looks like the New York Giants are bound and determined to put themselves in as desperate a situation as they possibly can. The Giants trail the Baltimore Ravens, 24-7, at halftime in a game they simply have to win in order to maintain control of their playoff destiny.

The Giants have now been outscored 58-7 in their last six quarters.

The Ravens scored on their first two drives, getting a six-yard pass from Joe Flacco to Torrey Smith and a one-yard run by Flacco. The Giants got a 14-yard run by David Wilson before the Ravens added a 23-yard field goal by Justin Tucker. Baltimore added a 27-yard pass to Ray Rice to stretch the lead in the closing moments of the half

Baltimore has picked mercilessly on Giants' cornerback Corey Webster with the veteran unable to contain Ravens' wide receiver Torrey Smith (four catches, 81 yards, one touchdown). The Giants have gotten no pressure on Flacco, and Rice and Bernard Pierce have run 19 times for 87 yards.

Eli Manning is 9-of-13 for 106 yards for the Giants.
