WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THE OFFENSE: The Giants continued to struggle in the red zone and on third down, not to mention turnovers. Eli Manning and company began 0 for 6 on third-down conversions to begin the game (0 for 2 in the red zone), and once they converted on their seventh try, Manning threw an interception in the end zone late in the first half. They finally broke through at the goal line on a one-yard run by newly-signed running back Brandon Jacobs, but it wouldn’t be enough for the Giants. After rushing just 14 times last week for 50 yards, New York become one-dimensional again, rushing for 23 yards on 19 attempts (1.2 average).
WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THE DEFENSE: If the over/under was set at seven for Peyton Manning’s passing touchdowns, the Giants kept him under. They did more than that, though. The Denver quarterback, who threw for seven touchdowns last week, did rack up his completions and yardage as usual, but it was the change of pace on the ground that gashed the Giants defense down the stretch. Running back Knowshon Moreno averaged 7.2 yards per carry for 93 yards and two touchdowns.
ROOKIE WATCH: Justin Pugh remained the starting right tackle as the Giants allowed just one sack on the night. Running back Michael Cox, quarterback Ryan Nassib, and defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins did not suit for the game.
