Week 11: New York Giants 27, Green Bay Packers 13- Post Game Thoughts

The Green Bay Packers suffer from a bit of Déjà Vu as they drop their second straight game to an NFC East opponent by the count of 27-13.  Scott Tolzien was picked off three times in the loss, but he did throw for over 300 yards and managed to make this game interesting.  The Jason Pierre-Paul pick-six in the fourth quarter really killed the Pack though as that proved to be the final nail in the coffin.  At the time Green Bay was down by just seven and driving to tie the game, so the turnover came at just the right time for the Giants.  Eli Manning played pretty well in this one, throwing for 279 yards and a touchdown to Reuben Randle.  Randle has been on fire as of late; it seems like every time a Giants’ receiver hauls in a touchdown pass, it is him.  He actually has six touchdowns on the season, all of them coming over the past six weeks.  So, New York has won four straight games and they do have to feel like they are becoming legitimate again in the NFC.  However, I am interested to see how they play against a team that has established themselves as a legitimate player.  Wins over Green Bay and Philly do look nice on paper, but you have to remember that each team played their third string quarterbacks in those contests.  That is neither here nor there because a win is a win.  And a win is a must for Big Blue next week as they host the Dallas Cowboys in a rematch from Week 1 of this season.  But, more on that later this week.
