Packers vs. Giants: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE

New York looks to end their mid-season swoon against a Green Bay team that has won five straight

In typical fashion, the Giants anoint and then disappoint. After being crowned Kings of the NFC after a 26-3 bashing of the 49ers in Week 6 New York has stumbled twice, being edged out by Pittsburgh and blown out by Cincinnati. Coming off their bye, the Giants will test their mettle at MetLife Stadium against a red-hot Packers team that hasn't lost since being upset by the Colts in Week 5.

The Giants' struggles are reflected in Eli Manning, who has thrown just 12 touchdown passes compared to 11 interceptions. Add in five fumbles and the fact that he is completing a pedestrian 61.3 percent of his passes and it becomes clear where the Giants need to improve. A banged-up Hakeem Nicks has certainly affected Manning, and his return this week should boost New York's passing productivity.

The Packers stumbled out of the gate, going 2-3 and calling into question their status as an elite NFC team. Starting with an evisceration of the Texans in Week 6, the Packers have rolled off five straight and Aaron Rodgers can't be discounted (or double-checked) when talking about the best at his position.

The Redskins did the Giants a favor on Thanksgiving by beating the Cowboys, increasing New York's lead in the division to 1.5 games over Washington and Dallas. The Giants can really make the Thanksgiving loss sting for the Cowboys by dispatching the Packers on Sunday.
