Packers vs. Giants: 10 Keys to the Game for Green Bay

As the Green Bay Packers prepare to square off against the New York Giants on Sunday, there is a story of two teams that are headed in opposite directions.

After a rocky start to the season, the Packers have won five in a row and have clawed their way into first place in the NFC North. Meanwhile, the NFC East-leading Giants have dropped their past two games and continue to cling to a precarious one-game lead in their division.

When these two teams meet, the outcome of the game will be important not only because of immediate momentum, but also because this interconference game may ultimately be a deciding factor in playoff seeding for one or both teams.

Given that the Packers have already lost two games against NFC foes—one to Seattle and one to San Francisco—and that they lead the NFC by just a tiebreaker, a loss to the Giants could have some pretty awful repercussions down the line.
