The Green Bay Packers do not have many holes in their game as they enter the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the NFC. However, one is their blocking in the kicking game. They allowed more combined blocked field goals, extra point attempts and punts than they had in the previous five seasons combined.
The Chicago Bears are going to try to reach the .500 mark when they face the Lions in the opening game of the Thanksgiving Day triple header.
A loss in the opening week of the season can be a lot more important for teams that are not established. The Giants should have an opportunity to learn a bit more about their identity in their opener tonight against Detroit.
If the Giants are going to run the ball, they’ll have to make sure to neutralize one of the most dominant interior defensive linemen in the league: Ndamukong Suh.
Coming off an embarrassing home shutout against the Seattle Seahawks last week, no one knew what to expect from the New York Giants this week. But New York hung on through a second-half swoon, and Big Blue defeated the Detroit Lions 23-20 in overtime at Ford Field.
For the third straight week, the Giants are playing an opponent who faces a must-win situation to either remain in playoff contention or while attempting to enhance its postseason seeding.
Fresh off their latest debacle, a 23-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at the Meadowlands, the New York Giants travel to Detroit for a matchup with playoff desperate Lions. Detroit is fighting it out with the Chicago Bears to secure first place in the competitive NFC north division, so the Lions cannot afford to take a win over the deflated Giants for granted.
