Giants rumble to stunning victory over Packers behind Saquon Barkley, bloodied Daniel Jones

The New York Giants stunned the reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in London behind a tremendous second-half comeback 27-22.

The Giants outscored the Packers 17-2 in the final two quarters and got touchdowns from Saquon Barkley and Gary Brightwell to lift them to the lead. Daniel Bellinger also had a touchdown on a trick play that was nearly stopped by the Packers for a big loss, but somehow he persevered.

New York trailed 20-10 at halftime before putting together 17 straight points behind Brightwell’s 2-yard run with 10:08 left and Barkley’s 2-yard gallop in the end zone that put the Giants up with 6:08 left.

The Giants’ defense stopped the Packers from scoring on their penultimate drive. Rodgers led a 14-play, 69-yard drive only to have his final two throws batted down.

Daniel Jones, whose hand was bloodied at one point during the game, finished 21-for-27 with 217 passing yards. He was only sacked once and managed to rush for 37 yards.
