The Saints defense then proceeded to clamp down on the Giants offense as they allowed only 65 rushing yards, fumbles were forced by DT Tyeler Davison and CB P.J. Williams and recovered by CB Marshon Lattimore and DL Taylor Stallworth, while Manning was sacked three times, the defense allowing him to average only 5.3 yards per attempt.
