Green Bay Packers Looking to Maintain Recent Surge

Rating:
These two teams have established some positive momentum after rough starts to the season. While the Giants likely got into gear too late to make a serious push to the postseason, the Packers enter this week holding the final wild card spot in the NFC. Green Bay has gotten stellar work from Love in this three-game win streak, which has helped them down the Chargers, Lions and Chiefs. He has the edge over DeVito, even with as well as the rookie has played of late. Brian Daboll announced that he would remain the starter this week, even with the return of Taylor from injured reserve. While the Giants are at home, the Packers have the edge on both sides of the ball. Look for Love to take advantage of the soft corners that the Giants have and deliver the Packers a fourth straight victory.
