Hasn't hurt them so far. We'll see.
Because you have to have someone who is good at it. Right now, they're bracketing him with a corner and safety and that's to keep him from breaking anything deep.
Manning is 4 of 7 for 47 yards. Beckham has two catches for 29 yards.
Giants have 52 total yards, 5 on the ground.
Not ineffective. Matthews drew a holding penalty, they've forced Manning to get rid of the ball fairly quickly and they haven't allowed Manning to stand a long time in the pocket. They just haven't hit him much.
Except draw a 10-yard penalty on a long completion.
Packers are blowing it on this drive. This was a good opportunity to keep pounding on them. But I guess with the two CBs out they wanted to test the pass defense.
Here's the Packers' first holding penalty. Bakhtiari gets caught. Blows a first down.
You can't get much more time than that. The protection was excellent. Cobb has to catch that.
That's at least the third drop tonight.
Schum hears it from the boo birds.
Schum's punt is 33 yards. Wonder what Masthay is doing.
Apple has a groin injury and is out for the rest of the game.
If the Packers are going to double the outside receivers with their safeties, that's a play the Giants are going to hit. Righ up the middle.
You have to give up something if you're going to double outside receivers.
Third and 11 and here's the dime package with three safeties.
That was exactly what I was talking about. Rather than rush six, they dropped two of those rushers into the middle and Manning couldn't throw it down the middle of the field.
Josh Brown from 46 yards.
