NFL: Green Bay Packers at Jacksonville Jaguars

Could things get worse for the New York Giants before they get better? After Monday’s 24-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings the Giants, as we details after the game, play their next five games against teams with a combined 13-5 record.

That begins Sunday night when the Giants travel to Lambeau Field to face the 2-1 Green Bay Packers. Oddsmakers think the 2-2 Giants are heading for a third straight loss, making them 7-point underdogs in the opening line.

In one of the weird, inexplicable quirks of the NFL schedule the Giants are traveling to Green Bay on a short week while the Packers are sitting home waiting for them following their bye week.

The game will, of course, pit Giants’ rookie coach Ben McAdoo against his mentor, Mike McCarthy of the Packers.

We are still, of course processing what we have seen from the Giants the past two weeks. Stick with Big Blue View throughout the week, though, as we turn our attention to the game against the Packers.
