There are some teams that look like winners this season and others that appear to be going in the wrong direction. As the New York Giants travel to Green Bay to face the Packers on Sunday night, New York has to figure out if they are going in the right direction after losing two straight games while Green Bay comes off their bye week with a lot of momentum and a challenge in the NFC North. This should be a big measuring stick game for both teams. Here is a look at the matchup.
The Giants lost 24-10 on the road against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night and have a short week to prepare for this one. Eli Manning has thrown for 1,186 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions so far this season and always want to hook up with Odell Beckham Jr. with his 22 catches for 303 yards. The running game is struggling with an injured Rashad Jennings and a young Orleans Darkwa. That is the team’s Achilles heel right now. The defense couldn’t slow down Sam Bradford in Minnesota and now has to deal with Aaron Rodgers. This will be a chance for New York to really step up.
The Packers had Week 4 off after beating the Detroit Lions 34-27 in Week 3 so they will be well-rested going into this game. Rodgers has passed for 617 yards, seven touchdowns and one interception on the year. Jordy Nelson is back and better than ever with 17 catches for 206 yards and four touchdowns while Eddie Lacy is being dominant again on the ground with 214 rushing yards. The defense may be giving up plenty of yards but it hasn’t resulted in many issues for Green Bay so far this season. The extra time off will allow the Packers to be extra sharp for this game under the lights.
