Falcons Vs. Giants Update: 5 Possessions, 5 Punts So Far In New Meadowlands

The first playoff game on Sunday between the Atlanta Falcons and the New York Giants has been a bit of a snooze-fest, unless you are a fan of the punters. There have been five possessions thus far and they've all ended in punts as the defenses have been stout and the quarterbacks have been unable to find their rhythm.

Eli Manning has just 36 passing yards thus far, Matt Ryan has just 31.

The battle for third down could shift the momentum of this game, as the Giants are 0-3 thus far on third down conversions, but on the Falcons latest drive they've converted on two key third down attempts putting the Falcons in scoring range.

We will have more updates as they come across, stay tuned.
