Giants vs. Falcons: Final Player Grades for New York

On his first pass attempt of the afternoon, Giants quarterback Eli Manning forced an inside ball to wideout Hakeem Nicks. Jumped by veteran cornerback Asante Samuel, the Atlanta Falcons came away with an early turnover, eliciting deafening roars from the Georgia Dome.

In a "statement game," both sides seemed to have already spoken.

With two teams jockeying for NFC supremacy, the Falcons pushed ahead from the get-go. Quarterback Matt Ryan tossed three touchdown passes, two to receiver Julio Jones, while the Giants offense failed to crack the scoreboard, falling on the wrong side of a 34-0 thumping.

Manning was intercepted twice, and the G-Men sacked Matt Ryan just once. Plummeting to 8-6, the Giants now share the NFC East with the Washington Redskins, who topped the Browns in Cleveland Sunday.

It was a rough outing for New York. Check out a post-game breakdown of all the action with final report card grades for key Giants.
