Giants Vs. Packers, NFL Playoffs: Holding Call Causes Another Punt For New York

The New York Giants are leading the Green Bay Packers 20-13 late in the third quarter, but it feels like the momentum has shifted just a bit. The Packers added a field goal at the end of a nice drive the last time they had the ball, and they've forced a three and out for the second time in this game. Steve Weatherford hit a huge punt to pin the Pack back a bit, but the Giants will still have to solve the problem of their stalling offense.

A holding call on the first play of the drive derailed it before it had a chance to get started. The Giants never could recover from first and 20, though Eli Manning certainly came close. Manning was given all kinds of room to run on third and 17 and looked to have a shot at a first down, but opted to slide five yards short instead of risking taking a hit.
