The Giants played much like they did for most of the first half of the season: turning the ball over and hurting themselves with mistakes. Except this time, RB Andre Brown and the rejuvenated defense provided enough good to finally outweigh the bad.
In the end, the Giants took a 24-20 victory into the tunnel. Not the most aesthetic effort, but good enough to win their third consecutive game after a starting the season with six straight defeats.
Two plays later, QB Terrelle Pryor dove over from the one to give the Raiders a 7-0 lead in the first minute of the game.
Later in the quarter, the Giants retuned the favor by blocking a punt and returning it for the touchdown for the first time since Sept 5, 1988. On 4-and-15 from the OAK 48, Damontre Moore bolted through the line, blocking Marquette King's punt cleanly. The ball was scooped up by Cooper Taylor on the 21, who took it the rest of the way for the score.
