Packers and Giants set to square off at Metlife Stadium for the third straight season

- Green Bay (5-4) heads east in Week 11 after back-to-back home games to face the N.Y. Giants (3-6), the third straight season that the teams have squared off at MetLife Stadium.

- Today’s game was originally scheduled to be a prime-time matchup, but was shifted to a late-afternoon time slot through the league’s flexible scheduling.

- The Packers will be looking to snap a two-game losing streak after falling to 5-4 on the season with a loss to Philadelphia at Lambeau Field last Sunday. Green Bay is tied for second in the NFC North with Chicago (5-4), one game behind first-place Detroit (6-3).

- The last time the Packers played a team outside of their division on the road in three-plus consecutive seasons was when they visited the Philadelphia Eagles each season from 2004-06.

- This will be the fourth straight season that the Packers and Giants have faced off in the regular season, the first time that has happened in the series since 1980-83.

- It is also the fourth straight year that the Packers have played at MetLife Stadium, with games against the Giants in 2011 and 2012 and a Week 8 meeting with the N.Y. Jets in 2010, the stadium’s first season.

- This marks the fourth straight season (2010-13) that the Packers have had a record above .500 through nine games.

- Green Bay has won two straight road games entering today’s contest, with victories at Baltimore in Week 6 and Minnesota in Week 8. Including playoffs, the Packers have won 16 of their last 24 road games (.667).

- Two of the most venerable franchises in professional football history, the Packers and Giants have combined for 21 championships. Green Bay ranks No. 1 among all franchises with 13 titles, while the Giants check in at No. 3 with eight championships behind Chicago (nine).

- The Packers and Giants have squared off in five NFL championship games, with Green Bay winning four of those contests. New York won the 1938 title at the Polo Grounds in New York, but the Packers defeated the Giants in the championship game in 1939, 1944, 1961 and 1962.

- Green Bay holds a 31-25-2 edge in the all-time series, which includes a 4-3 postseason record. The teams first met in 1928 in New York.

- This will be the second straight week that the Packers have faced an NFC East team, with Green Bay hosting Philadelphia last Sunday. The Packers played Washington at Lambeau Field in Week 2 and will travel to Dallas in Week 15.

- The Packers enter today’s contest with a 33-10 record in their last 43 regular-season games, a .767 winning percentage that ranks No. 2 in the NFL over that span behind only New England (34-9, .791).

 

WEARING THE STRIPES

- Today’s officiating crew includes referee Terry McAulay (77), umpire Scott Dawson (70), head linesman Greg Bradley (98), line judge Mark Steinkerchner (84), field judge Terry Brown (43), side judge James Coleman (95) and back judge Lee Dyer (27).

    I think we got this game. Despite Aaron Rodgers being injured, you got to have faith in your NFL team, and Rodgers doesn’t make the entire team, and you have to consider Scott Tolzien is just getting used to the team. We still got amazing non-injured players, such as Nelson, Raji, Starks, Hawk, and my two favorites Lacy & Matthews, so we can do this! Y’all just have to have faith like I said!!!! GO PACK GO!!!!

    I’m with Dylan. Let’s get some turnovers and win this game. Close one going on now in Pittsburgh, and the Bears down by 10 in the windy city. This day could easily end in a good way. GO PACK GO!
