Don’t look now, but after starting their season with six straight losses, the New York Football Giants have won four games in a row. Big Blue’s latest victory, 27-13 over the Green Bay Packers, may have been their most complete game of the season and sets up an important clash with the Dallas Cowboys next week.
Tolzien made his NFL debut in a 27-13 loss to the Eagles, completing 24 of 39 for 280 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
Both the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers have had their fair share of injuries this season. But in week 11 of the NFL regular season, that is to be expected. And while some key performers for both teams may not suit up on Sunday, one name stands out prominently on the injury list, quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
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.
Coach Mike McCarthy has pronounced third-string quarterback Scott Tolzien the starter against the Giants on Sunday.
Two teams going in opposite directions. That would be the best way to summarize this week’s battle between the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers. The Giants started out the season with six straight losses, while the Packers won five of their first six games. Since then New York has reeled off three straight wins, and Green Bay has dropped two in a row. Will both streaks continue this week?
