What to watch for in Sunday’s Packers-Giants game

Posted by packers.com on November 17, 2013 – 1:25 am

- The Packers have posted at least 350 yards of offense in 10 of their last 11 regular-season games.

- Green Bay has posted 3,780 yards of offense this season, the most through nine games in franchise history. The Packers rank No. 3 in the NFL through Week 10 with their average of 420.0 yards per game.

- Green Bay has rushed for 135-plus yards in six of its last eight contests. The Packers’ 1,288 rushing yards this season are the most through nine games since 2003 (1,475 yards) and the fourth most by the club through nine games since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.

- The Packers have had at least one 100-yard receiver in seven of nine games this season and rank No. 1 in the NFL with nine 100-yard receivers on the season.

- Green Bay’s nine 100-yard receivers this season are tied for the third most in a season in franchise history, trailing only the 11 in 1995 and the 10 in 2010.

- Over their last four games, the Packers have converted 28 of 56 third-down opportunities, a 50.0 percentage that is tied for No. 3 in the NFL over that span.

- The Packers have averaged 28.0 points per game on the road since 2011, No. 2 in the NFL over that span behind only New England (31.6).

- Green Bay has turned the ball over five times in its last six games.

- The Packers have been flagged for 11 penalties in their last three games.

- With QB Scott Tolzien expected to start today, it will mark the first time since 1987 that the Packers have had a different QB start in three consecutive games in a season. That season, Randy Wright started Week 1, Don Majkowski opened in Week 2 and Alan Risher started in Week 3 (replacement game). The last time prior to 1987 that the Packers had a different QB start in three straight games was in 1973 (Jim Del Gaizo, Scott Hunter and Jerry Tagge).

- RB Eddie Lacy has rushed for 618 yards over the last six games, No. 1 in the NFL over that span.

- Lacy needs one rushing TD to move into a tie for the second-most TD runs in a season by a rookie in team history. With four on the season, Lacy is one behind Charles Goldenberg, Gerry Ellis and Brent Fullwood (five each) and two behind Samkon Gado (six).

- In three career regular-season games against the Giants, WR Jordy Nelson has posted a 28.9-yard receiving average, catching 10 passes for 289 yards and two TDs. His two TDs against the Giants were an 80-yard score in 2010 and a 61-yarder in 2012.

- Nelson has 11 catches of 25-plus yards this season, which is tied for No. 2 in the NFL through Week 10.

- WR Jarrett Boykin has 319 receiving yards since Week 7, which ranks No. 9 in the NFL over that span.

- In two career regular-season games against the Giants, LB Clay Matthews has posted a sack, two forced fumbles and a 38-yard INT return for a touchdown.

- LB A.J. Hawk enters today’s game with 964 career tackles, good for No. 5 in team history (since 1975). He is just four tackles shy of moving past LB Mike Douglass (967, 1978-85) for No. 4 on the club’s all-time list. Hawk leads the team with 92 tackles this season, eight shy of his fourth straight 100-tackle campaign.

- DE Datone Jones has posted three sacks over the last two games, tied for No. 1 in the NFL over that span.

- K Mason Crosby ranks No. 3 among NFL kickers with 89 points this season. He is 11 points shy of his seventh 100-point season. He ranks No. 2 in team history behind only Ryan Longwell (eight, 1997-2004).

    you dont win games with statistics

    These are some really meaningless stats. M Stafford put up some record numbers on offense on a 4 – 12 lions season not too long ago.
    If your defense cant stop anybody , it really does not matter.

    Games are won and lost on mistakes. If the stats continue and mistakes are minimized – we win the game…the most important statistic.

    What’s really pathetic is here we are a professional football team standing toe to toe with major metropolitan cities like New York and Chicago and we have these small minded writers writing useless garbage stats like this which makes us look like a rickety little dumb folk town!!!!!! We don’t need new players we need new writers!!!!

    Giants win by 2 touchdowns today, Eli and Brown have record setting day against our “D” . Good luck Scott, but your gonna get sacked at least 4 times today. 2013 season RIP.

    I liked the article of stats. What’s the problem?. They state past, present, and future stats that could fall this year.
    Potato chips taste good, they aren’t good for you but, we know junk food fills us with comfort and we eat them regardless. Stat’s fill us up with useless info but, DAM, if we don’t love them and eat them anyhow. It just feels right knowing.

    LOL Excellent comment goin. You hit the nail squarely in the head. Now lets just somehow win this game. Go pack

    Great so-called “fans” on here. Pack wins division and into play-offs for 5th season in a row and shot at SB, that’s a great stat.

    We have all heard the cliche: “Statistics are for Losers” well the Packers have been so decimated by injuries, poor play from the defensive backfield, and questionable play-calling
    that the Packers have nothing else to feel good about.

    When all is said and done it comes down to “guts”, and when today’s game with the Giants is over, we will know what the 2013 Packers are really made of.

    What’s so surprising about the defensive backfield,the Pack hasn’t a DB for years.Charles Woodson can’t be everywhere and when he’s not anywhere you have nothing, but guys that should be buying a ticket to watch the game. Any team that starts a season without a backup QB and have go get their throwaways to continue the season, what were they thinking? They have an overrated GM, Coach and QB

    I see that Hayward is out AGAIN with the SAME OLD HAMSTRING INJURY!!! I don’t understand how players are not physically in shape to play their position. This has been a beginning of the year injury for Hayward, and it might be season ending for him! Either Green Bay better get their work out program in shape or there going to continue to have these UNCALLED for injuries! If it continues, these players will be worthless to keep if its only 1 or 2 games that they end up being able to play a FULL SEASON!!!

    YOU WIN GAMES WITH AN OFFENSE!!!! YOU WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS WITH A DEFENSE!!!! PLAIN AND SIMPLE!!!

    So right OKGOPACK, amazing how we have so many fans-turned-coach-and-GM riding in to save the team.

    Roll on Green Roll on

    OKGOPACK, I ‘am a believer in my team, but not a day dreamer!!! The packers have a lot of problems and its NOT just injuries. I’am tied of that being an excuse!!! A lot of other teams have injuries and continue to win, THEN WHY CAN’T WE!!! Its because our defensive backs or the defensive coordinator SUCKS. You pick which one AFTER the game.

    Well said we won’t win without a defense and probably won’t like to see our defensive stats!

    It has been quite a few years since the Packers have had a good defensive backfield. Could it be the Defensive Coordinator’s coaching and strategies, or is it poor judgment in the player selection process? In any event, it’s time for a change. Give somebody else a try at fixing the Packers defensive shortcomings, while the Packers still have a powerful offense.
