In a game from Week 5 of the NFL, we will see the teams of New York Giants at Green Bay Packers on Sunday at Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Green Bay are coming off a bye week, standing at 2-1, hosting the 2-2 New York Giants. Green Bay are mostly counting on the wins at home while Giants are coming off a road loss to the Vikings 24-10. Giants improved their defense in the offseason but I still think they have some gaps they have to fill. More so, their secondary is very injury-prone and some of their biggest stars won’t be playing on Sunday. I don’t think Green Bay has the defense to keep Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. quiet and they will probably have great numbers. Rodgers finally found his stride in week 3, putting 34 points against the Lions. They recharged as they didn’t have a game last week.
Packers are in need of someone like Xavier Rhodes to get to Beckham’s head but unfortunately they don’t have such a player. That’s why I predict this to be a high-scoring game with both defenses unable to hold the opposition’s offense to minimum numbers.
