- Running back’s late touchdown secures shock 27-22 victory
- Packers coach LaFleur says result ‘as disappointing as it gets’
Whisper it, but maybe the New York Giants are finally good again. This shock 27-22 victory against the Green Bay Packers was impressive enough. Doing it despite going behind 14 points early, and a team riddled with injuries, hinted at something even more substantial. Their reward is their best start to an NFL season in 13 years.
The Giants are not the most talented team in the NFL. But they are certainly among its most pesky and resilient. That toughness embodied by their star running back, Saquon Barkley, who returned after a shoulder injury to score the winning touchdown.
