Game Notes:
"Oh my gosh! I was so excited to see the Giants go into halftime with a 21-3 lead. I should have known better, as no lead seems to be big enough until the game is actually over. Last week it was 21-10 over the Cowboys and we ended up with the same result, another loss. If ever a team needed a win it was, well I guess both these teams, but why did it have to be the Jaguars instead of my Giants?
The Giants started a long drive in the first quarter and Rashad Jennings ran the ball in on the first play in the second and things were going so well. The Giants started killing it and had three straight drives that ended in touchdowns before giving up just three points to the Jaguars to end the half. I thought for sure we were going to coast to a win today instead of losing this game by one point.
In the second half they were outscored 22-3. I know we lost offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz in the first quarter, but they had managed in the second after he was gone. Anyway, the offense seemed to just disappear in the second half. Eli Manning was hurrying his passes and was sacked four times. Running back Rashad Jennings was hurt and did not play in the fourth quarter and that didn't help.
The biggest problem though was with the turnovers. They turned the ball over three times and two became instant touchdowns for the Jaguars. This
was supposed to be a game the Giants could win as well as the next on the the road again against the 2-10 Tennessee Titans. It seems that nothing goes well for the Giants these days and there are no easy wins."

Game Notes:
"The Giants couldn't contain their excitement or their lead going into the second half against a Jacksonville Jaguars team that barely ever wins a game. There's a song with lyrics - I left my heart in San Francisco. Tom Coughlin may have left his heart and any chance of repeating as head coach for the Giants in Jacksonville where he got his first start. Today he, or the Giants, gave the die-hard Jaguar fans a big comeback victory that they will long remember.
How did the Giants blow a 21-3 first half lead? Some of the explanations will revolve around the fact that right tackle Geoff Schwartz was taken off the field in the first quarter with a left ankle injury. His replacement, James Brewer, was having a rough go of it before he left the game in the fourth quarter with a concussion. The Giants shuffled things around after that, but you know how things go for Eli Manning and the ground game when the offensive line is at its makeshift best. When Rashad Jennings didn't return in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury, that about sealed the deal for having no offense against a talented and aggressive Jaguars front line that sacked Manning four times in this game and caused him to fumble twice. How did the Jaguars score against the Giants defense?
Well you have to go right back to the Giants offense giving away points. Geno Hayes sacking of Eli Manning caused a forced fumble into the end zone for the Jaguars first touchdown. In the fourth quarter tight end Larry Donnell lost the ball after a third-down catch and it was recovered for a touchdown by the Jaguars.
In between those scores, the Giants defense had given up a touchdown when the Jaguars were moving the ball effectively with mostly all running plays before quarterback Blake Bortles surprised them with a 30-yard touchdown pass. Their field goal drive near the end of the fourth quarter used up all the Giants timeouts and left them with just 28 seconds on the clock. That was just enough time for dedicated Jaguar fans to rejoice once again when Manning was sacked and the fumble was recovered by their home team.
The Giants showed that they are better than the Jaguars only in the standings where they have a lousy three wins instead of two. The best the Giants can do now is match their poor 7-9 record from last year, but don't forget, they have to win their last four remaining games even to accomplish that."
