This weekend the Green Bay Packers will battle against the New York Giants. For the Packers this game will be a “must-win” game. They are in danger of missing the playoffs as they are now just 8-6 on the season. In order to ensure their positioning in the playoffs, this season the Giants need at least one more win. After their loss to the Eagles, they are 9-5 on the season.
The total for the game is currently off whereas in NFL betting lines the Packers will be the 3 point favorites in this game.
The Packers need to win out in order to ensure a playoff spot as they lost in a close one against the Patriots last week. As the Packers’ starting quarterback is still trying to recover from a concussion sustained in week 14, he may or may not be available for this matchup.
However the Packers seem to struggle to win as many games as you’d expect they are a great team on both sides of the ball. In this one they will be playing at home. In Lambeau Field, they have won 9 of their last 10 games.
Last week the Giants lost in a heartbreaker against the Eagles. In this game their loss last week could play a major role. However the Giants managed to lose the game as time expired; they were up 3 touchdowns in the 4th quarter. A team can fall into a tailspin with that kind of losses.
In order to ensure that they do not continue falling after their loss to Philadelphia, the Giants need a strong start to this game.
