The Green Bay Packers bounced back from their loss versus the 49ers in a big way. These five players put the winter weather behind them and helped the team rebound.
After being trounced on the West Coast, the Packers headed east and tried their luck in New Jersey. And they bounced back in a big way. A 31-13 win versus the 2-9 Giants was a good way to get back on track.
The offense looked much better despite the Giants holding Aaron Jones to modest contributions. The Giants did a great job shutting down not just Jones, but Williams as well on the ground as the Packers finished with only 79 yards rushing on 26 attempts.
The weather nor the Giants could slow down the Packers’ passing offense though. All four touchdowns were scored through the air and the slippery, wet conditions didn’t seem to bother Aaron Rodgers or his receivers.
Mike Pettine and his crew got back to creating turnovers as the defense forced three interceptions from rookie Daniel Jones. Tramon Williams, Darnell Savage, and Kevin King all got in on the act, picking off the Giants quarterback.
JK Scott seemed to rebound as well, averaging over 46 yards per punt in the game. Scott was even able to pin the Giants deep inside the 20 on two of his three punts.
The Packers moved to 9-3 on the year and dropped the Giants to 2-10. There are still some kinks to work out for the Packers, but they are one step closer to clinching a playoff berth and a division crown.
Here are five players who helped the Packers bring home the win.
