Brett Favre Getting Hit by William Joseph/Tom Lynn/Associated Press

Don’t worry everybody, there’s plenty of room on the Giants bandwagon so feel free to hop on.

After being pronounced all but dead after a week one spanking in Philadelphia, the Giants won two games at home and then went out yesterday and defeated the Packers, 14-7,at Lambeau Field. It was New York’s first victory in Green Bay since 1974.

The Giants are now 3-1 and seem to be getting better every week while the Packers fell to 1-3 for the first time since 1993 and are in the midst of the team’s first 3-game losing streak under head coach Mike Sherman.

After a scoreless first half, quarterback Brett Favre suffered a concussion on a hit by defensive linemen William Joseph (love to see Miami Hurricanes making plays). After two plays, Favre returned and, on fourth-and-five, threw a 28-yard touchdown to Javon Walker. The Packers were up 7-0 and the Lambeau crowd was going bananas. The Green Bay medical staff kept Favre out for the rest of the game and following the contest Favre claimed not to have remembered throwing the touchdown. It didn't help that during the touchdown celebration Walker tackled an already woobly Favre.

A mere 50 seconds later, Tiki Barber took a hand off on second-and-one and ran for a 52-yard touchdown to quiet the crowd and tie the game. The Packers got caught on a blitz and before they knew it Barber was taking it to the house. A 38-yard run by Barber in the fourth quarter also set up a 4-yard touchdown from Kurt Warner to Jeremy Shockey that gave the Giants the lead for the day. Barber, who is in the midst of a great season, rushed for 182 yards and the touchdown and again the defense played tremendous.

Also, we at Gothamist would like to remind all the degenerate gamblers out there that the Giants covered the spread with plenty of room to spare just like we predicted. Of course that may be the first prediction that we’ve gotten right, but, hey, who’s keeping track.
