70 degrees, mild
- Giants’ offensive woes continued as they once again failed to score 20 offensive points.
- Ben McAdoo and his team never really adjusted on offense to help his OLT Flowers as he clearly struggled all game long vs Lions’ pass rushers, and in particular, DE Ansah. Flowers’ struggles clearly affected QB Eli Manning as he never got into a smooth rhythm setting his feet while throwing.
- Jim Caldwell and Lions staff’s defense played well and showed confidence in their game plan, with numerous players made key plays.
- Giants defensive unit continues to play well and benefited from creative playcalls and blitz packages.
- Lions did a good job of staying patient with their run game, something they have not been doing.
