Giants-Ravens week 6 final score: Giants stun Ravens, 24-20, improve to 5-1 - Big Blue View

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – The 5-1 New York Giants continued a shocking start to the 2022 NFL season on Sunday with a 24-20 come-from-behind win over the Baltimore Ravens.

The Giants now upset the 3-3 Ravens and Green Bay Packers in consecutive weeks, and also own a victory over the Tennessee Titansthe number 1 seed in the 2021 AFC Playoffs.

In a rousing post-game locker room Jihad Ward referred to the Giants as the “don’t fold” team. For the second straight week the Giants showed that, completing a comeback against a team they weren’t expected to beat.

“I don’t go too far. I’m sorry. I don’t go too far; I’m just trying to do what I can do to help the team the best I can,” head coach Brian Daboll said of his team’s surprising start. “And I’m asking everyone to do the same thing in the organization, and collectively together, that’s where our focus has to be to keep getting better, own things when they’re not right and take responsibility, compete for each other, play for each other. Again , we’ve played six games, so it’s a long season. There’s a lot of work to be done.”

Trailing 20-17, this Julian Love interception gave the Giants a chance, putting the ball at the Baltimore 13-yard line with 2:50 to play.

The interception was the Giants’ first of the season.

The Giants took advantage three plays later when Saquon Barkley jumped into the end zone from the 1-yard line with 1:43 to play. The Giants had first-and-goal after a defensive pass interference penalty by Marcus Peters in the end zone on a throw intended for Darius Slayton.

On Baltimore’s next possession, Kayvon Thibodeaux was fumbled by Lamar Jackson, with the ball recovered at the Ravens’ 13-yard line to seal the win. That was Thibodeaux’s first NFL sack.

“Kayvon for President,” Ward said.

Thibodeaux said he cried after the game ended.

“It was the greatest moment. I really sat out there and cried just because the emotion I felt that now I’m in the NFL, now that you can really contribute and that’s what they paid me to be here, so the fact that I was able to do it. it’s a great feeling.”

Here is the evidence:

Daboll said the defense “played its best when it counted the most.”

The Giants trailed by three points, 13-10, entering the fourth quarter. Baltimore took a 20–10 lead on a 12-yard Lamar Jackson to Josh Oliver touchdown pass with 12:54 to go.

The Giants responded with a 12-play, 75-yard drive that ended with an 8-yard touchdown pass from Daniel Jones to Daniel Bellinger. That made the score 20-17 with 6:01 to play.

That set up the end of game drama.

At 5-1, the Giants have already won more games than a season ago, when they finished 4-13.
