Green Bay Packers Vs New York Giants Game Day Preview
The Green Bay Packers got a look at just how far they are from being a top team in the NFC when they were bludgeoned 37-8 at San Francisco last week and are searching for answers. The Packers, who are tied for the lead in the NFC North, will try to bounce back when they travel to the other side of the country to visit the New York Giants on Sunday.
Green Bay, which is tied with the Vikings atop the North and has a visit to Minnesota scheduled for Week 16, was blunt in its assessment of the performance against the NFC-leading 49ers last week. “That we got out-coached and we got outplayed and we’ve got to “man up,” we’ve got to look at ourselves critically and get a lot of stuff corrected,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur told reporters of his message to the team. “We’ve got to be honest with ourselves. But it wasn’t nearly good enough. And again, give them credit. That’s a good football team. But we’ve got to be a lot better.” Green Bay has a good chance to bounce back Sunday against the Giants, who are losers of seven in a row as the offense struggles under rookie quarterback Daniel Jones.
“I think when you look at it, you’re always looking for ways to improve in everything you do,” New York coach Pat Shurmur told reporters. “You try to tweak and change things within the way you do things. Our guys practice extremely hard. There’s good attention to detail. Some of these guys are doing it this year for the first time at this level. The challenge then is to make it happen on Sunday.”
Green Bay dropped two of its last three games and totaled 19 points in the two setbacks – both on the road – with quarterback Aaron Rodgers putting the poor performances on offensive execution. “Well, just a couple bad performances,” Rodgers told reporters after the loss to San Francisco. “I think both games we were bad on third down. Tonight, we were terrible on third down. We didn’t do a good job of establishing the run in both games. I think the games we’ve gone out and played well on offense, we’ve had a good run game.” The Packers totaled 45 rushing yards and went 2-for-10 on third down conversions in the 26-11 loss at the Chargers was even worse against San Francisco, going 1-for-15 on third down and watching top rusher Aaron Jones manage 38 yards on 13 carries.
New York went 1-for-12 on third down and totaled 134 passing yards in a 19-14 loss at Chicago last week and lost a fumble for its 25th giveaway of the season – the second-worst mark in the NFL (Tampa Bay, 27). “I think as a team and as a group, we’re focused on making sure we can correct those mistakes and trying to do all we can to get back on track,” Jones told reporters. “So, I think, yeah, we need a win and we’re working as hard as we can to get back on track.” Star running back Saquon Barkley is struggling to find running lanes with the offense in low gear and is averaging 2.8 yards per carry in five games since returning from an ankle injury.
