Packers at Giants odds, predictions and preview


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.

Date: November 17
Start Time: 4:25 p.m. EST
Location: East Rutherford, NJ
Stadium: Metlife Stadium
TV Info: FOX
Line: Giants -6

Prediction:

NEW YORK:          31          

GREEN BAY:          13

    “Even if Wallace makes it in time for kickoff” So yeah, good one Josh. Way to totally ignore the fact that Seneca Wallace is on IR. That information can only be found on CBS, ESPN, and the NFL websites. Or the fact that the Packers signed Flynn should have been a heads up!

    Also, to the editorial board of FANSIDED, how does one become an “author”? I’m pretty sure I could do better than 75% of the people you have posting now.

    My problem right now is that Green Bay has an insignificant ability to rush and pressure quarterbacks. Ad to this the tendency that the defense keeps on melting at the wrong time, a host of injuries and the Pack is faced against a rock and a hard place. The Packers need to step up to their best potential. And why no turn overs/interceptions anyway. Maybe Lacy can be a change maker.
