    The Giants have not looked particularly good in their last couple games and are coming off a bye. They're a dangerous team, especially given their defensive front and the Packers struggles on the offensive line.

    Here are the 6-4 Giants to date:

    We need to give some recognition to the good to great job being done by the defense against opposing QBs. For the season thus far:

    Alex Smith significantly over performed while Drew Brees, Andrew Luck and Sam Bradford all slightly over performed their season averages. Otherwise, not so much, sometimes by a lot. If they can keep Eli in a funk this week it will surely help matters.

    The Packers are ranked second in sacks at 33, behind Denver and just ahead of Cincinnati.

    The Dope Sheet says the Packers are first in the league in rushing yards allowed per game since the 4th game (after getting gashed in the first three). I'll take their word for it because I'm not going digging for that information.

    Sunday night should be quite a battle.

    Recap

    Nuts, I completely forgot to post this as I tried to blot out as much of the game as I could but it needs to get done so we can move on...

    It was a blow out. I still haven't cut the video, I guess that'll keep until Saturday (written Tuesday, still waiting).

    It's been written about elsewhere but the game plan was crazy. Or, the game plan was fine but the script went into the garbage before the first quarter was complete. Either way, the first half was a blow out and nothing much worked in second half either (except the Bone late in the game but I chalked that up to garbage time).

    Both lines were whipped and the early rushing success by the Giants contributed to the out of control nature of the first half.

    Tackling raised its ugly head once again.

    James Jones wasn't targeted a single time.

    Oddly enough, the running stats look almost respectable. I thought I was seeing things.

    One thing did make me laugh late in the game. McMillian got called for Unnecessary Roughness on Martellus Bennett. There is a 7 to 8 inch difference in height there. How could McMillian avoid hitting Bennett's jaw with his helmet without launching himself? It was just that kind of night.

    With the win the Giants helped their cause in the NFCE while the Packers are now in the wild card bracket. Should this team make the playoffs, the Giants are going to be there waiting.
