Giants vs. Skins - play-by-play

A nice directional kick into the end zone for Feely.

Was. ball
1&10: Portis gets 2 yards. I'm not worried about the run defense.
2&8: Portis for 2. Short's starting today instead of Emmons.
3&6: 16 yard pass to Cooley. A good pass rush but the blitz left Cooley wide open, and Brunell back-pedalled to buy time.
1&10: Portis for 2. Osi got him.
2&8: Inc. pass. Play action, but good coverage forced a bad pass.
3&8: Loss of 2 by Randle-El. Almost an option play.
Punt: Morton let it bounce, but a decent little 8 yd return.
