After the Giants let Michael Vick and the Eagles come back to win in stunning fashion last week, there is obviously some hangover from the epic debacle.
In that game, Eli Manning had an impressive outing: throwing for 289 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. But when the New York offense needed him most, Manning caved in under the pressure — a trend we are use to seeing from Manning throughout his career.
All that pressure against the league's 21st-ranked pass defense? Better believe it.
Philadelphia's defense has given up 227.1 yards through the air per game this season, compared to Green Bay's 192.4 yards per game — establishing major contrast between the two.
When Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams step onto the field Sunday afternoon, Manning won't know what hit him.
The league's top cornerback tandem is ready for anything Manning has up his sleeve — and with wide receiver Steve Smith placed on IR for the remainder of the season, Eli will be over-targeting Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham.
I think Woodson and Williams can handle them.
Matchup to watch: Charles Woodson vs. Eli Manning
Manning has been known to fold in pressure situations, and Woodson is the perfect counter to those struggles. If Eli begins to doubt himself, the Packers are in for a huge day.
