(NEW YORK) - A goal-line stand, Ali Haji-Sheikh's team-record 56-yard field goal and a wave of third quarter turnovers by the bomb-prone Green Bay Packers gave the New York Giants a 27-3 win on Monday night. The goal-line stand in the second period preserved New York's 7-3 lead built on Rob Carpenter's tackle-busting 14-yard run. Haji-Sheikh's booming kick made it 10-3 just before the half, then three fumbles and an interception on Green Bay's first four possessions of the third period wrought havoc with the Pack attack and helped New York roll up 17 more points. Terry Jackson picked up Eddie Lee Ivery's fumble on one bounce and sprinted 35 yards for a touchdown 1:49 into the decisive third period, Haji-Sheikh's 32-yard field goal followed Lynn Dickey's fumble and Giants' QB Scott Brunner passed 27 yards to Earnest Gray for the score that capped the Giants' biggest quarter of the season. Green Bay, stonewalled when Gary Lewis failed to sweep in on a fourth-and-1 with 5 minutes to go in the second quarter, was limited to Jan Stenerud's 20-yard field goal that opened the scoring in the first period. Scott Brunner's passes of 21 yards to Zeke Mowatt and 13 yards to Earnest Gray and an 11-yard run by Carpenter highlighted the 79-yard, nine-play drive capped by Carpenter's run. The Giants' defense was faced with the prospect of trying to stop one of the NFL's more potent passing attacks - Dickey's bombs to James Lofton, John Jefferson and TE Paul Coffman.
