After a 63-yard punt return by TJ Jones gave the Giants the ball at the Bills' 33-yard line with 1:15 remaining in the first half, it seemed as if they had a chance to put points on the board before intermission. Especially after Eli Manning hit Bennie Fowler for a quick gain of 12 yards on the first play. Instead, Manning’s next pass on first-and-10 from the 21 was batted at the line by Ed Oliver and picked off by Trent Murphy to end the threat. The Giants had two chances to score in the final two minutes of the half. They missed a field goal and threw an interception and went in trailing 21-7.
