Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
Even though the Jets got help scoring points from all three phases (offense, defense and special teams), they still can't stop the run. Simply put, the Giants controlled the line of scrimmage in the second half and wore down an undersized Jets defensive line by using RB Brandon Jacobs and their power rushing attack. The Giants' offensive line, which averages more than 313 pounds, opened up running space for Jacobs between the tackles. This allowed QB Eli Manning to get into rhythm in the second half. Manning attacked downfield to both TE Jeremy Shockey and WR Plaxico Burress off the Giants' play-action attack.
