The last time these two teams met was in last season’s divisional playoffs, when the Giants ended the Packers’ 15-1 season early.
Both teams are on the path to the playoffs once again, so this game will be crucial for both teams in their ongoing division races.

Green Bay Packers
The Packers have won their last five games, which, coupled with two straight losses by the Bears, has tied them for first in the NFC North with Chicago. They have four division games remaining, so it will be important for the Packers to pick up this win against New York so they have a cushion heading into their last five games.
Based on last year, it would be easy to give the edge to the Giants, but the Packers are simply playing better than them right now. Green Bay has scored at least 24 points in each of their last five wins, with 24 also being t...

We love that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers can get into the spirit of Movember and rock a powerful mustache for the whole world to see when he took on the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football. What we didn’t expect was for Rodgers to give the viewing audience at home a little taste of Zoolander’s famous Blue Steel.
Of course Movember is when you will see men wear awkward...
This is not a report card that Packers' players will want to post on their refrigerators as an example of work well done. No, this is the type that gets hidden in backpacks for as long as possible with the hope that, if enough time passes, it can just be forgotten about.

As a grown adult male who has never been able to grow sufficient facial hair, I don’t typically handle news involving mustaches and beards very well, but if that news creates the opportunity to rank celebrity mustaches and/or beards then I can live with it. In this case, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers appeared on Jim Rome’s new show on Showtime Wednesday night and Romey asked...
The Packers took a beating on Sunday night but their NFC North hopes are firmly within their grasp. "Sometimes it takes a loss" to focus on the areas that need improvement, Aaron Rodgers said.
Last night’s Giants game wasn’t exactly a must win, but it was pretty close.
The Giants limped into the bye week off of two ugly losses and then had to play the Packers, one of the hottest teams in the NFL. After a sluggish start for Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers and the Pack were fully hitting their stride and entered the game on a five game winning streak.
And just when everyone...
If Sunday night's loss to the Giants felt odd, it's because the Packers almost always been within one score in their losses with Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy. We scour the history to provide some context.
The Packers are hoping they don’t see their #12 in this predicament on Sunday night
Packers Offensive Line vs. Giants Defensive Line
This is probably THE key to this game for the Packers. Their offensive line has struggled when all of their regular starters were healthy and in position. Now add to that a shuffled line to account for the loss of right tackle Bryan Bulaga against...

This week in the NFL we were treated to some Thanksgiving drama and some good upsets.
Going on my eyeball test, here are my Conference Top 5 power rankings this week.
The Baltimore Ravens made the cut…but they still need to find a way to get Ray Rice the ball more.

Because of Thanksgiving and traveling I wasn’t able to get a pre game article up so I decided to do a running diary of the game between the Green Bay Packers and the New York Giants. That way, you, the reader, can get a ton of reading material that contains a bunch of rambling and possibly a nice little insight or two! Note to readers: The times listed are the actual times the...
