The Green Bay Packers defeated the New York Giants on Wild Card Weekend at home at Lambeau Field 38-13. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw 4 touchdowns for 362 yards and zero interceptions. Eli Manning didn’t play bad, but had little help from his receivers who dropped a few passes early in the game that could have changed the momentum of the entire outing. Odell Beckham Jr. punched a wall after the game in the locker room, and we have proof.
The Giants lost their best corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie early in the game with a leg injury, and Jordy Nelson was also taken out of the game with a rib injury. Nelson’s healthy will be a big concern as the Packers prepare to travel to Dallas to play the Cowboys. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott will be waiting for the Packers and the red hot Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers also completed a hail mary at the end of the first half, completing his 3rd hail mary in the last two seasons.
This one was caught by wide receiver Randall Cobb, who finished the game with 3 touchdowns. He and Devante Adams both finished the game with over 100 receiving yards.
With the victory the NFL divisional playoff round is set. Saturday will have The Seattle Seahawks at the Atlanta Falcons, and the Houston Texans at the New England Patriots. Sunday will have the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Green Bay Packers at the Dallas Cowboys. National Football League.
