The Green Bay Packers will hit the road after two straight home games and head to New York to face the Giants. This marks the fourth straight season that the Packers and Giants have met during the regular season.
The Packers are 2-1 in those last three games, but the Giants also scored a playoff win against the Packers following their 15-1 regular season in 2011.
Since that playoff loss, the Packers pass rush woes have been on display and continue to plague the team. Without quarterback Aaron Rodgers in these past two games, Green Bay has been unable to overcome a lack of pressure on the quarterback. It has placed added stress on the secondary as they have given up large chunks of yardage and valuable time of possession enroute to two losses.
What are the chances that the pass rush is a key this week? Let’s dive in and see.
Scott Tolzien’s Maturity in Packers Offense
This was a key last week, too. I just swapped out Seneca Wallace’s name for Tolzien’s. Obviously anytime a new quarterback steps in, there are going to be many eyes on his performance. Also many questions about how he will perform and handle the spotlight. For Tolzien, there are few bigger stages than in New York City and against a nemesis to the Packers over the past two years.
