Giants Pound Pack

"They scored more than we did. We didn't do a good job today. I've never been 1-3 before. I've never been this frustrated." – Packers S Darren Sharper

What went right * They won! To win at Green Bay to improve to 3-1 is quite an accomplishment for Tom Coughlin's club.

* Tiki Barber ran wild, posting two huge runs during an afternoon when he dazzled the Packers defense and rolled up 182 yards. Barber's ground attack helped the Giants keep the ball for close to 36 minutes. .

* Jeremy Shockey beat the Packers defense for the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter for one of his five catches. .

* Barrett Green forced Ahman Green to fumble near midfield after a 19-yard run. Brent Alexander recovered the ball and helped keep the Pack off the board in the first half. .

* Jeff Feagles, who twice earlier had great punts roll into the end zone after his coverage unit failed to down the ball, ripped off a 53-yard punt that was downed at the Packers 3 by Mike Cloud. .

* With a team-high 12 tackles, rookie Gibril Wilson continued to play very well, almost adding another INT to his ledger. .

What went wrong.

* New York left 16 points on the board in a game they barely held on to win. Steve Christie missed three field goals and Kurt Warner was picked off in the end zone. .

* Brett Favre beat the defense, which did a very good job of containing the Packers dangerous offense, on his first play back in the game after banging his head. On fourth-and-four, Favre connected with Javon Walker for a 28-yard TD for the game's first points. .

* Frank Walker, playing his first game this season, had an interception that he returned 69 yards for an apparent TD nullified because he was flagged for pass interference. .

* As usual, the Giants couldn't convert on third down, moving the sticks only three times in 12 opportunities against Green Bay. .

* The Giants came up with only one touchdown on four trips inside Green Bay's red zone. That included Ron Dayne twice being stuffed near the goal line. .

Stat worth noting: The time of possession was huge in New York's favor. In the first and fourth quarter they held the ball for more than 11 minutes and also played keep-away for 9:16 of the second quarter. Favre and Co. can't hurt you when they're on the sideline. .

Stat worth noting II: With Tiki Barber and the ground game rolling, the Giants only netted 158 passing yards. Kurt Warner threw for 187 yards but lost 29 on four sacks. .

Turning point: Tiki Barber's 52-yard touchdown scamper only two plays after the Packers had taken the lead was enormous. It gave the Giants the life they needed to pull off an unlikely road win at Lambeau. Barber got himself lost among the Packers defense and scooted to the end zone, tying the game at 7 just 50 seconds after the Packers had finally broken the ice. .

Play to remember: New York didn't convert its first third down until midway through the fourth period. But it was a huge one. With a 14-7 lead and 8:46 to play, Kurt Warner calmly dropped back and hooked up with Ike Hilliard for a 14-yard gain to move the sticks – and more importantly, keep the clock running – on a third-and-two from the Green Bay 48. .

Play to forget: Jason Whittle can laugh now about his false start that moved the Giants five yards further away from the end zone right after Kurt Warner almost slid past the goal line for the go-ahead score. A first-and-goal from inside the 1-yard line became a first-and-goal from outside the five after Whittle couldn't hold the snap count. The Giants scored on third down. .

By the numbers.

0 – Total points in the first half. The last time the Packers had a scoreless first half at Lambeau Field was 1980. .

2 – Years since the Giants won three games in a row. They put together a four-game winning streak at the end of the 2002 season. .

10 – The Giants positive differential in the turnover margin through four games. .

11:58 – Time the Giants had the ball in the fourth quarter, when they took the lead and held off the Pack. .

What they said.

"That was some game. That was a whole lot of fun." – Giants coach Tom Coughlin.
