Green Bay takes it’s injury stricken offense to East Rutherford to take on the disappointing New York Giants this weekend. Even though this may seem like a bad match up with the way the season is going for these teams, it’s a great opportunity for the Giants.
New York has gotten better since an 0-6 start to the season, reeling off three wins in a row. A win this week would set up a big showdown with Dallas, who beat the Giants 36-31 in week one. The NFC East being what it is, somehow the Giants are still right in the thick of it, even with that horrible start.
Poor Green Bay went from Super Bowl contenders, to a team just trying to survive its’ way into the Playoffs, to a team without anything to lose, but not much hope of winning. They are down to their third string quarterback Scott Tolzien after Seneca Wallace went down with a groin injury in week 10.
Tolzien drove the field a few times for Green Bay, but the end result was their fourth loss on the season to the Eagles. The Pack is 5-4 and only a game and a half out of a Wildcard spot, but the race is in jeopardy of ending short.
As bad as New York has been, the Packers should be able to stay in the game, but nobody really believes Tolzien will beat Eli Manning. Even if Wallace gets back in time for kickoff, we’ll just stick with that.
