Touchdown for Families - Week Sixteen


One touchdown raises $250.00 for the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance

The New York Giants had their playoff hopes dashed this past Sunday, losing to the Carolina Panthers 41-9 in the team's last home game at Giants Stadium.  The mistake- filled defeat moved the Giants record to 8-7, thereby eliminating the Giants from the postseason.

The Giants lone score came on an Eli Manning touchdown pass to wide receiver Steven Smith late in the game.

The Giants are currently eighth in the league in scoring, averaging 26.3 points per game, and are sixth in the NFL in total yards gained on offense.

Through 16 weeks of the NFL season, the Touchdowns for Families program has raised $11,250 for the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance and the Healthy U program.
