Giants Packers Game Preview

Here it is: Win and in. Simple as that. If the Giants can beat the Packers today, they will be in the playoffs. Will they beat them? Can they?

INJURIES:

Giants:

OUT: DE Dave Tollefson (knee), CB/PR Will Blackmon (knee)
PROBABLE: DE Osi Umenyiora (knee), WR Mario Manningham (heel), C Shaun O’Hara (foot), LT David Diehl (illness), T Shawn Andrews (back), WR Devin Thomas (hamstring),

Packers:

OUT:  DE Cullen Jenkins (calf), G Marshall Newhouse (back)
DOUBTFUL:  LB Frank Zombo (knee)
QUESTIONABLE: LB Diyral Briggs (ankle), S Nick Collins (ribs), LB Erik Walden (quadricep)
PROBABLE: CB Pat Lee (ankle), DE Ryan Pickett (ankle), QB Aaron Rodgers (concussion), CB Charles Woodson (toe), T Chad Clifton (knees), LB Clay Matthews (shin), C Scott Wells (toe)

OFFENSE:

Well, the offense wasn’t the problem last week. 31 points. Moving the ball. To win today, they’ll have to keep it up, especially in the run game. Jacobs and Bradshaw, especially with the weather, have to be strong. No two ways about it. Other than that, no interceptions, no fumbles, no stupid plays. Keep it simple.

DEFENSE:

Who’s going to step up? Who’s going to take responsibility for the putrid performance they put on last week? Someone has to. They have to put the Eagles performance behind them, and focus only on the Packers. Got to pressure Rodgers. He’s coming off a concussion. You hit him, you get him out of his comfort zone. Hit him, pressure him, and don’t let up.

PREDICTION:

The Giants realize the importance of this game. They know they have to put whatever happened against the Eagles behind them. But, it’s going into Lambeau, in the cold weather, against a team that is fighting for the same thing they are. This isn’t going to be a cakewalk. It’s going to be a battle. Still, I feel confident. FINAL SCORE: Giants 21, Packers 17
