This is a game that should be a lot like the 49ers-Saints game Saturday. It should be close, it should be high-scoring and it could feature turnovers as the deciding factor in the game.
Aaron Rodgers is coming off nearly three weeks of rest and should be very fresh. Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews did not play in Week 17, and they should be healthy and ready to go.
Green Bay is getting back numerous players from injury this week, including James Starks, Bryan Bulaga, Chad Clifton, Randall Cobb and Greg Jennings. Also, two players who did not play against the Giants in Week 13, Desmond Bishop and A.J. Hawk, will be ready in this game.
The Giants have a healthy defensive line that will look to man handle Green Bay's offensive line. Justin Tuck, Jason Pierre-Paul and Osi Umenyiora are going to provide tough matchups for a line that is just getting back together.
Eli Manning will look to continue proving he's an elite quarterback, as he played well against this team in Week 13 but needs to play even better when it matters most. Manning will have to play one of his best games to win, unless Rodgers plays poorly or commits turnovers.
I see this game being a shootout for the first two-and-a-half quarters, but one team will pull away from the other—kind of like the Saints-Lions game. I still like the Packers and Rodgers, so the Packers will be that team.
