Green Bay (7-4) was most certainly not able to eke out the upset win last week in New York, getting embarrassed by the Giants, 38-10 – the Packers’ worst loss in five years.
The Giants had a superior game plan in place. Largely ignoring the Packers’ running game, they keyed in on stopping quarterback, Aaron Rodgers with great success. It resulted in five sacks, a forced fumble and pressure that led to an interception.
Meanwhile a balanced offense showed that Green Bay still has trouble getting off the field when defending. Several quick scores put the Packers into too deep a hole and the game was over by halftime.
Both of these factors will have serious implications for this week’s game against the Minnesota Vikings (6-5).
