    After a hell of a meeting in the regular season the playoff rematch had the potential to be another classic matchup. It was a cold snowy day in NJ with the winds blowing 15mph...perfect for Giants football.

    1st Quarter
    Min looked good on the first drive & moved the ball down the field with Peterson. But then Peterson fumbles & DE Justin Tuck recovers and takes it back 40yds for the TD. (0-7) After an out of bounds kick, Min starts out from the 47. Giants defense are able to hold Min to 3 & out and they punt it away. On the Gaints next possession, Manning connects with the always dependable Steve Smith on a 46yd TD pass (0-14). Giants kick off to Min but Harvin fumbles on the return which is recovered by Travis Beckum. Already deep in Min territory Bradshaw takes it in from 15yds for the TD. (0-21) Min next possession Boley intercepts a Favre pass and takes it 43yds down to the Min 3yd line. Form there Jacobs take it in for the score. (0-28)

    2nd Quarter
    Min ball and Peterson running well on this drive. Ends with a Favre 14ydTD pass to Percy Harvin. (7-28) Giants move the ball down the field on their possession capping it with a Jacob 9yd TD run. (7-35)

    3rd Quarter
    Giants receive and Manningham breaks a multitude of tackles and takes it all the way for 91yds and a TD. (7-42) Min bounces back with a good drive and Favre hits Harvin who outran everyone for a 63yd TD. (14-42) Giants are again able to put together solid drives but this time Vikings D held out.

    4th Quarter
    Hauschka kicks a 19yd FG. (14-45) On the kickoff, Harvin takes it back 92yds for the score. (21-45)

    Final Score 21 - 45

    Minnesota had some tough breaks early which were just too hard to overcome. Giants defense & special teams came through big time with 3 TD's. Offense looked sharp and showed no signs of rust after the layoff.

    GG game Lamar.
