While many assumed the Oakland Raiders – New York Giants game would be a snooze-fest, often times games between two sub-par squads are some of the most entertaining of the day.

The Raiders and Giants are currently living up to that hype considering the first five minutes or so of their Week 10 matchup has been action packed.

After winning the opening coin flip, the Giants decided they’d opt to receive the kick which they possessed for about four seconds as an opening kickoff fumble gave the Oakland Raiders prime field position. The Raiders would quickly score just a few moments later, but that action would be bested by the Giants.

As the Raiders were facing a fourth down with about 9:30 left in the first quarter, the G-Men were able to break through the Raiders’ line and get their mitts on the potential punt. The pigskin went bouncing around, which the Giants quickly scooped up and rushed into the end zone which tied the contest at 7-7.
