Eli Manning had Jake Ballard open in the back of the endzone for an apparent touchdown, but the tight end was unable to bring the ball in as it hit off his hands. As a result, Lawrence Tynes was brought in to kick a 22-yard field goal to give the New York Giants a 10-2 lead over the Atlanta Falcons in New Meadowlands Stadium.
The field goal finished off an 11-play, 72-yard scoring drive that lasted almost five minutes midway through the third quarter.
The key play in the drive was a 30-yard run by Ahmad Bradshaw, as Hakeem Nicks cracked down on the Falcons defensive backs to spring Bradshaw free. On the day, the Giants have amassed 116 rushing yards on the Falcons 6th-ranked rushing defense.
