How to watch the Green Bay Packers’ road game against the New York Giants in Week 13.
And just like that, December is here. Every game counts for a lot in the final month of the regular season, and the Green Bay Packers have positioned themselves nicely to make a late-season playoff run in the final five weeks.
That starts with another road game, this time against the New York Giants. The Giants have just two wins to their name, but the Packers can’t afford to overlook them after losing two of their past three games, and in convincing fashion.
The Packers are in the playoff mix in December, and that’s always exciting. Here’s how you can watch the game:
The Giants don’t have much to play for. These are valuable games for rookie quarterback Daniel Jones to get experience, but the Giants are still very much in the rebuilding process. They will be looking forward to the offseason and building their roster. For the Packers, nothing else matters but getting the victory at MetLife Stadium.
But as we’ve seen now against both the Los Angeles Chargers and San Francisco 49ers, if the Packers don’t show up ready to play their best football, they’ll lose. Of course, the 49ers are currently the top team in the NFC, but the Chargers looked like the New England Patriots against the Packers, and they’ve struggled all season long.
A win here would be a big one for Green Bay. It’d be the team’s ninth, which would not only take them one step closer to the playoffs, but it’d also (for now) put some distance between themselves and the Minnesota Vikings. With a win, the pressure would be on the Vikings to win on the road against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night. If the Vikings lose, the Packers would be one game ahead with four to go.
No matter how the Packers get over the finish line, all that counts is they get the victory.
