Giants 28, Lions 20

We’ll take that, thank you very much, and move on to Dallas next week.  A mostly routine home win over the improved, but still not very good, Lions.  The Giants ran the ball well — over 100 yards for Bradshaw and two TDs for Jacobs — and threw it efficiently enough (two TD passes for Eli).   They were fairly consistent in scoring a TD in every quarter and played their cleanest game of the year with only two penalties and no offensive turnovers.

The only negatives were three bad plays that helped the Lions get 17 of their points.  Dodge dropped the snap on the first punt (dropped it twice, actually) and gave Detroit a short field for their first TD;  Rolle took a terrible sideline angle on Calvin Johnson resulting in an 87-yard TD pass; and they gave up a long kickoff return after their final TD which the Lions turned into a FG.

Good news?  We’re 4-2, we’ve won three straight, we’re 3-1 at home and 3-0 in the NFC.  I’ll keep saying it: the NFC East games will tell the tale.  Six of the last 10 games remaining and 3 of the last 4 home games are division contests.
