Fourth Quarter:

Beginning the final quarter, Manning throws a beauty to Cruz, but he drops it. He was probably so shocked to be open for the first time today his excitement caused shaky hands.

On third-down, Bennett gets a case of the jitters, adds another big drop to the drive.

As the New York Giants (6-3) travel to take on the Cincinnati Bengals (3-5), the game will likely come down to the obvious -- will the Giants offense rediscover their mojo? Can Big Blue fix their Swiss Cheese defense? Will A.J. Green continue his impressive sophomore campaign?

With a little help from Pro Football Focus, here are three key match-ups to keep an eye on during this interconference showdown.

The New York Giants (6-3) and the Cincinnati Bengals (3-5) square off Sunday with both teams looking to right the ship.

Coming off of a fourth-quarter collapse to Pittsburgh, the Giants face yet another AFC North foe as they attempt to put another check-mark in the win column before their bye week.

The Bengals have lost four consecutive contests, including last week's 31-23 loss to Peyton Manning's Broncos, and are falling out of the AFC playoff picture.

In Perry Fewell's weekly spot with the media, the Giants' defensive coordinator addressed everything Big Blue D from the aftermath of Sunday's loss to the Steeelers to A.J. Green's comments about Swiss Cheese.

After Tom Coughlin tagged his defense as soft earlier in the week, Fewell agreed -- in a way -- and explained what went wrong.

"We didn?t shed well and we didn?t tackle well," Fewell said. "We could?ve tackled a hell of a lot better. We could?ve shed a hell of a lot better in that football game to make some football plays."
