Anthony Wright took over at the end of the first quarter for Eli Manning, who finished by completing only two of his six passes for 19 yards. Wright looked pretty good, completing nine-of-13 for 116 yards. By far his best pass was a beauty of a bomb that was collected down the right sideline by Sinorice Moss for a 46-yard gain.
Moss has been performing very well of late in Albany and it was nice to see it translate onto the game field.
Lionhearted: Not to toot Penn Stater Jay Alford's horn or any thing, but he got some good pass rush pressure in the second quarter, including when he drew a holding call.
Tynes report: Lawrence Tynes missed a 44-yard field goal attempt early in the second quarter. Moments later Tynes nailed a 33-yarder.
Slippery fingers: Reuben Droughns fumbled the ball away as the Giants were trying to drive right before halftime.
Quotebook: "It felt great to be out there. To be honest, I felt like playing more. I didn't want to get out of the game. We played the run very well. They came out and did a couple things, like the bootleg, that we need to get better on. There is plenty of work still to do." – Giants DE Osi Umenyiora
