It has been a good season for the Packers with their 15-1 record, but on Sunday it's all over. With QB Eli Manning coming in with what might the scariest WR trio in the league, the Packers defense is in trouble. WRs Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham, and Victor Cruz all have the ability to beat CBs one-on-one and make big plays. The Packers defense has actually been the worst defense in the NFL this season in total yards allowed so they will have tough time matching up.
Last week the Giants defense, led by DEs Jason Pierre-Paul and Osi Umenyiora, shut out the Falcons offense. They allowed the fewest total yards of the weekend with 247 and ended the dirty birds' season. The Packers didn't play last week and Aaron Rodgers hasn't played in the last two weeks because he sat out in Week 17. The Packers will need to shake off some rust and the step up but the Giants are just hot right now.
Hey Packers! You're on Upset Alert!
