Aaron Rodgers hasn't thrown for more than 213 yards in a game this season. Fortunately for the former MVP, he'll face a New York secondary that's been soft against the pass in 2016.
New York has allowed opponents to rack up 274 passing yards per game in a 1-2 stretch the past three weeks -- a mark that ranks just 20th in the league. That's good news for Rodgers and a Green Bay aerial attack that has yet to fully gel despite having all of its major components healthy for the first time since 2014. Wideout Jordy Nelson has been solid, but teammate Randall Cobb has yet to hit full speed as the team's No. 2 option.
The Giants should provide an opportunity for the Packers' offense to find its stride. New York was the latest victim of the Sam Bradford redemption tour. The veteran passer sprung for and efficient 262 yards and a touchdown in a Week 3 win. Before that, Kirk Cousins threw for nearly 300 yards in a win. While each passer has his merits, neither can match Rodgers' resume behind center.
A Packer revival would put pressure on Eli Manning and the Giants' offense to fill in the gaps. They have to be able to count on Odell Beckham Jr., who is reportedly one outburst away from earning a spot on the New York bench. Beckham had his worst game in the NFL after gaining a career-low 23 yards against the Vikings. New York will need him to step up and provide a spark for an offense whose mediocre run game (3.9 yards per carry) does it no favors.
