Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.
Two of the NFL’s most decorated franchises will meet this Sunday when the Packers and 49ers meet in a NFC Wild Card matchup. The winner will move on in the playoffs, while the loser will face a disappointing end to a season that started with much higher aspirations.
Don’t look now, but after starting their season with six straight losses, the New York Football Giants have won four games in a row. Big Blue’s latest victory, 27-13 over the Green Bay Packers, may have been their most complete game of the season and sets up an important clash with the Dallas Cowboys next week.
Two teams going in opposite directions. That would be the best way to summarize this week’s battle between the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers. The Giants started out the season with six straight losses, while the Packers won five of their first six games. Since then New York has reeled off three straight wins, and Green Bay has dropped two in a row. Will both streaks continue this week?
