Being exhausted and a NASCAR title race on will do that.  That said, the Giants continue to have our number and won easily, again, 27-13.  The Packers fell to 5-5 on the season, which puts us one game out of the division and a playoff spot.

Scott Tolzien looked pretty good again.  He appeared to have the same major miscues that he had last week. This will have to end. Jordy Nelson continues to prove that he isn't a product of Aaron Rodgers.  The man is a flat out beast.  Eddie Lacy struggled, which he was due for a bad game.  Its a bit difficult to worry about a rookie running back struggling against a defense that doesn't respect the quarterback.

The defense was okay.  They only gave up 20 points (the other 7 were a pick 6).  Only giving up 5.3 yards a play and 334 yards as a whole isn't too bad either.  Its hard to pin this loss on them as a unit.  The big worry still is their inability to get off the field as the Giants held the ball for thirty-five minutes.  Its been three straight games where our opponents have been able to keep our offense off the field when they so choose to do so.

The Packers move on to play at Minnesota.  Its a must win.  We lose and our season is over. We win, we stay alive another week and hope Aaron Rodgers is back for Thanksgiving.  Its simple as that.
