lions eliminated from playoffs

The Giants embraced the role of playing spoiler in a 23-20 overtime win, but it really was the Lions that blew this game more so than the Giants actually rising to the occasion.

The loss eliminates the Lions from playoff contention. But even so, the Giants? offense looked totally inept at times ? in fact, most of the time.

Big Blue led 13-3 at halftime, and for the most part, the makeshift offense line held its own against a tough Detroit defensive front. And Jerrel Jernigan ? who was the team?s leading receiver last week against the Seahawks ? had four catches, including a great catch on his first career touchdown reception, in the first half.
