The New York Giants staged a second half comeback to win an enjoyable contest in London.
The first team ever to win an international NFL game in the English capital in 2007 were again victorious as they came from behind to beat a favoured Green Bay team led by Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers threw to Allen Lezard for the first touchdown of the contest in the opening quarter.
The Packers threatened to make this a blowout when they went 17-3 ahead through a Mercedes Lewis catch, but a touchdown after a trick-play finished up with rookie tight-end Daniel Bellinger making his way into the endzone.
Trailing 20-10 at the break, the New York franchise had it all to do and Daniel Jones led an impressive drive down the field that resulted with Gary Brightwell tying the game with 10 minute to go in the fourth quarter.
The best player in the Tottenham stadium on the day was Saquon Barkley and the running back returned to the fray to make the difference by finishing off a drive, where he featured prominently, by running into the endzone for a late lead that wouldn’t be relinquished.
One thought on “Giants beat the Packers”
