Giants season tracker 2010
A week-by-week look at how the Giants' 2010 season has unfolded.
WEEK 1: GIANTS 31, PANTHERS 18 (Sept. 12, 2010)
Big Blue opened up New Meadowlands Stadium in style, roughing up Matt Moore and the Panthers. A big second half keyed the Giants' win; the offense scored on its first three possessions, and the Giants' D recorded four second-half sacks, including one that knocked Moore out of the game.

WEEK 2: COLTS 38, GIANTS 14 (Sept. 19, 2010)
The Manning Bowl didn't exactly go to plan for Eli and Co. Peyton led the Colts to a 24-0 lead at the half, and Indy never looked back, totaling 410 yards while holding the Giants to 257.

WEEK 3: TITANS 29, GIANTS 10 (Sept. 26, 2010)
Turnovers doomed the Giants in an ugly loss to Vince Young and Tennessee. After knotting the game at 10 at halftime, the Titans scored 19 unanswered second-half points, largely thanks to a pair of picks by Eli and a fumble by Bradshaw.

WEEK 6: GIANTS 28, LIONS 20 (Oct. 17, 2010)
A surprisingly pesky Lions team stayed close most of the game, but the hard-hitting Giants defense knocked another quarterback - this time Shaun Hill - out of the game, and Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 133 yards in the win.
Record: 4-2 | Game story | Game stats
WEEK 8: Bye (Oct. 31, 2010)
The Giants entered the bye week riding a four-game win streak.
WEEK 9: GIANTS 41, SEAHAWKS 7 (Nov. 7, 2010)
No post-bye hangover for Big Blue. Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes and Danny Ware, Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs led a rush attack that totaled 197 yards in the shellacking.
Record: 6-2 | Game story | Game stats
WEEK 10: COWBOYS 33, GIANTS 20 (Nov. 14, 2010)
Trap game? With the Eagles on the horizon, and Jason Garrett taking over a team in tatters, Big Blue choked, turning the ball over three times in a loss to the Jon Kitna-led Cowboys.
Record: 6-3 | Game story | Game stats
WEEK 12: GIANTS 24, JAGUARS 20 (Nov. 28, 2010)
One week after falling victim to a come-from-behind win by the Eagles, the Giants managed their own late-game theatrics. Eli Manning hit Kevin Boss for a 32-yard touchdown strike with 3:15 left to deliver the Giants their first win in three tries.
Record: 7-4 | Game story | Game stats
WEEK 13: GIANTS 31, REDSKINS 7 (Dec. 5, 2010)
Leaning on their rushing and defense, the Giants showed the days of Donovan McNabb lighting them up were over. McNabb was picked off twice and fumbled the ball three times in the loss. Brandon Jacobs, meanwhile, eclipsed 100 yards on just eight carries for Big Blue.
Record: 8-4 | Game story | Game stats
WEEK 14: GIANTS 21, VIKINGS 3 (Dec. 13, 2010)
After a mega snow storm, a collapsed dome, a rescheduled game, and Brett Favre ending his historic streak there was a game to be played. None of that fazed the Giants who ran over the Vikings with over 200 yard on the ground from Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw. With the win, the Giants pull into a first place tie in the NFC East with the Eagles.
Record: 9-4 | Game story | Game stats
WEEK 15: EAGLES, 38, GIANTS 31 (Dec. 19, 2010)
The Giants managed to vastly overmatch Philadelphia for three quarters, and led 31-10 late. However, led by Michael Vick, the Eagles charged back, knotting the game at 31. As regulation was set to expire, the Giants needed to punt the ball away. Instead of booting it out of bounds, Matt Dodge hit a low line drive to DeSean Jackson. The speedy wideout responded with a game-winning touchdown return, capping off a 28-point fourth quarter for Philly.
Record: 9-5 | Game story | Game stats
WEEK 16: PACKERS 45, GIANTS 17 (Dec. 26, 2010)
The Giants laid an egg in what was essentially a regular-season playoff game, allowing Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense score easily and often. The secondary was again manhandled, and Eli Manning threw four interceptions.
Record: 9-6 | Game story | Game stats
WEEK 17: GIANTS 17, REDSKINS 14 (Jan. 2, 2011)
The Giants victory over the Redskins was a hallow one as they needed help to clinch a playoff spot. The Giants knew their season was over with about 2:13 to go in their game as Green Bay defeated the Bears. The fourth quarter debacle to the Eagles two weeks ago was the beginning of the end for the Giants. Ten wins was just not enough for a playoff berth this year in the NFC East.
