For the second consecutive week CB Terrell Thomas came up with an interception. This one came in the third quarter off Kyle Orton and led to a field goal for the first Giants points. … Lawrence Tynes' 52-yard field goal near the end of the third quarter was his longest since coming to the Giants. It was one yard shy of matching his career long. …

Who is DJ Ware? No, he's not a new running back for the Giants. He's Danny Ware, who has let it be known that he now wants to be called DJ. Apparently that's what his family calls him but when he went to college at Georgia the coaches started calling him Danny. Ware had a rough game, losing the ball on a fumble in the second quarter and getting knocked out of the game late in the third quarter with a concussion after a hit by CB Champ Bailey.
S Michael Johnson left late in the second quarter with a strained groin and was not able to return. He was replaced by C.C.

"There was no confusion,'' Tom Coughlin said. "Our headset between coach to quarterback was going out, Eli did not get the play, the play clock was running down and he then took a time out.''
