Giants

vs.

Packers

Week 5

NFL Pick

10/9/16

Week 5 has a matchup of one explosive offense going against a potentially explosive offense. The Giants have the quarterback-wide receiver connections to be a threat to anyone. Green Bay’s defense has been bad against the pass this season. The Packers’ offense seems to be finding itself. Aaron Rodgers is coming off his best performance two weeks ago and a bye week in Week 4 to prepare for this Game. Green Bay is favored by 7.5 and the over/under is 48 ACCording to the 5Dimes Sportsbook.

Eli Manning has thrown for nearly 300 yards per Game through the first Four. It hasn’t all been pretty, though. Manning thrown for just one touchdown and three interceptions in his last two Games, but he’s getting ready to see the worst pass defense he’s seen to date. The Green Bay has one of only a handful of defenses allowing over 300 passing yards per Game on the season.

This is good news for Manning & Co. Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard and Victor Cruz have been dynamic for Manning all year. Those three are totaling over 200 receiving yards per Game. They’ve also combined to catch three of Manning’s Four touchdown passes on the year.

The backfield is still a work-in-progress. Rashad Jennings is questionable for this weekend. Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey did a solid job last week, combining for 70 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries. The Packers do not allow many rushing yards, and the Giants don’t run the ball very much, for that matter. But, having any production from this spot would be a boost for New York.

Rodgers’ performance two weeks ago was superb. He only attempted 24 passes but completed 15 of them for 205 yards and Four touchdowns. For the season Rodgers has now tossed seven touchdown passes versus only one interception. He’s also found the end zone twice with his legs.

Jordy Nelson seems to be finding his stride again with Rodgers. He’s shown iNCreased production in each of Green Bay’s first three Games. In receiving yards Nelson has gone from 32, to 73, to 101. In average yards per receptions he’s gone from 5.3, to 14.6, to 16.8. In receiving touchdowns Nelson has gone from one, to one, to two. It’s been impressive knowing the type of injury he’s coming off of.

The Giants have not been as bad defensively as the Packers, but Green Bay does seem to be finding something of a stride on offense. Pair the improving passing attack with Rodgers and Eddie LAcy — who are averaging nearly 100 yards per Game on the ground, combined — and the Packers could have some nice going forward.

The Giants’ offense likely finds plenty of success against the Packers’ defense and this one certainly has the potential to be a very close Game.The Giants ought to be able to keep this Game within the 7.5.
