It’s time. The dominoes have lined up for the Giants, who now have the opportunity to show that they are improved enough to knock them over.
Make no mistake about it. The Giants still have many elements to improve as they attempt to win their fourth consecutive game. But the Packers are reeling – with injuries on both sides of the ball.
Andre Brown set career highs with 30 carries and 115 yards while running for the go-ahead 1-yard TD late in the third quarter — and he wasn’t activated until this past week.
It’s hard to imagine how a game during the first week of November can be identified as a “must win,” but the Giants are facing what are – for all practical purposes – three “must win” games in a row.
The Giants have pointed the arrow in the right direction over the past two weeks, although there’s still much work to be done following Sunday’s 15-7 road victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

No team that started 0-5 team has ever made the NFL playoffs, which means the Giants can cling to the long-shot belief that they could become the first. But it has to start with a win Thursday night over the Chicago Bears
It was another week, another late-game meltdown and another loss.
Coach Tom Coughlin has a battered group heading into Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium, although he’s not going to offer any excuses. He knows what is at stake and so do his players.
It’s one thing to lose four straight games. It’s another thing to NOT HAVE WON a game. And it’s yet another thing when you consider that the Giants haven’t tasted any sort of victory since their preseason opener.
How much wiggle room do the Giants have? Not much when you are 0-3, but at least the NFC East does not appear to be nearly as strong as it was expected to be.
