The New York Giants (6-5) enter this Sunday's game with a three-game losing streak and hearing all sort of talk about a third straight late-season collapse. Unfortunately for the Giants, the team they have to try and right the ship against in the 11-0 defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. Game time at MetLife Stadium is 4:15 p.m. ET, and the game will be shown on FOX.
"We are going to prepare as hard as we can. We are going to work as hard as we can. We realize that the margin is thin and we are going to have to play very well in order to accomplish this but we think we can," said Giants coach Tom Coughlin. "As I said, we are going to do everything in our power in this short week to turn around the negatives from last [Monday] night and get it going in the right way again."
The Giants, of course, were embarrassed by the New Orleans Saints, 49-24, on Monday Night Football. The Packers will visit the Giants having been able to rest since a 27-15 victory over the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.
