The New York Giants rolled over the Green Bay Packers 27-13, thanks in part to their ability to win the turnover battle.  

The biggest of the Giants' turnovers was a 24-yard interception return for a touchdown by defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who told reporters that he knew he was going to come up with the big play just seconds before he made it. 

“I read the formation, the tight end, how he was set, and I caught the ball,” said Pierre-Paul, who as late as Friday wasn't even sure if he was going to play due to a right shoulder injury.

His interception broke open the game for the Giants, who prior to the play held a slim 20-13 lead. It was his second pick-six in his career; the first was a 28-yard play last year at Dallas.

In addition to the interceptions, the Giants run defense once again rose to the occasion, holding dynamic rookie running back Eddie Lacy to just 27 yards on 14 carries.

The win is the Giants’ fourth in a row and has helped elevate them out of the division cellar and into third place, ahead of Washington, who lost 24-16 to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Giants will close out their current three-game home swing next week against the Dallas Cowboys. Here are the report card grades for their win over the Packers.
