… Randy Bullock’s 37-yard field goal split the uprights as time expired. Wan’Dale Robinson’s 32-yard catch-and-run was the back-breaking play for the Packers. The explosive play moved the Giants to the 22-yard line with 42 seconds left.

WR Malik Heath: The rookie had the go-ahead touchdown batted out of his hands just one play before he made an incredible catch for his first NFL touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

Take your pick: the Packers had three turnovers, converted 2/5 red-zone trips into touchdowns, gave up 209 yards rushing, lost the sack battle 2-0 and got out-gained by 1.8 yards per play. Oh, and Tommy DeVito — the third-string rookie quarterback — rushed for 71 yards, threw a touchdown pass, didn’t have a turnover, didn’t take a sack and led a game-winning drive.

Jordan Love watch

Love played poorly, especially in the first half. He lost a fumble on a third-down run inside the 30-yard line, threw a terrible interception just two plays after a turnover on downs and struggled with ball placement during the first 30 minutes. He eventually settled in and led the Packers on several scoring drives, but the misses — especially in the red zone — added up. He did get the Packers in the end zone and provided a chance to escape New York with an ugly win. Love completed 25 of 39 passes for 218 yards, one touchdown pass and one interception, good for a passer rating of 76.7.
