The New York Giants organization surprised a veteran with a service dog named “Honey” at halftime of Sunday’s matchup.
The New York Giants put up a stinker on Sunday afternoon, losing to the Green Bay Packers by a score of 31-13. It was the team’s eighth straight defeat, as they’ve secured a third consecutive season with double-digit losses. They’re now 2-10 and at the bottom of the NFC East division.
But the loss to Green Bay did indeed have one special moment. At halftime, the organization provided an Army veteran with a service dog named “Honey.” The veteran is Raymond Lynch, and according to the Giants official Twitter account, he was on the waiting list for over a year.

The presentation of Honey to Lynch was met with cheers and applause from the MetLife Stadium crowd. It was a sentimental moment that everyone seemed to enjoy. Congratulations to Lynch and may his relationship with Honey grow more and more as time progresses.
It was after halftime when the Packers turned on the jets. More specifically, in the fourth quarter. They were only up 17-10 on the lousy Giants at the break. Big Blue then cut the lead to 17-13 before the Packers put up 14 points in the final quarter.
Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers tossed four touchdowns in the snow, with one to Allen Lazard, one to Marcedes Lewis, and two to receiver Davante Adams. On the contrary, Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones didn’t have the best game. Jones racked up 240 yards through the air and tossed just one touchdown in comparison to three interceptions.
