The Giants scored on half their drives (not counting the kneel down as a drive). Who cares if they punted on the other half. It's the scoring on half that matters.
The punts, by the way, came on drives of 6:00 (10 plays), 3:48 (8 plays), 4:21 (7 plays), and 4:53 (10 plays). They may not have resulted in scores, but they sure helped the Giants control TOP.
And field position.

I wish you held last year's Patriot offense to the same rigid, results based expectations you had for the Giant's and then we could agree. 17 points in todays NFL won't cut it. We knew that leading up to the game, our offense had to score big to win; they didn't.
Oh my God, are you for real? The fans DID hold the Pats O to beyond average expectations as in scoring on 50% or more of their drives. That IS NOT NORMAL! Nonetheless, the Pats did manage to do it often enough but some crazies expected it (always) and give the totally ineffecient D a pass because they were supposed to suck. You can't give one side a pass for underachieving and diss an O for not overachieving. Ridiculous
