2012 Week 12 4* NFL Pick: GIANTS -2.5

While the experts and public are favoring the NEW YORK GIANTS, the Packers will push the Giants to their limit. The bad news for the Giants is that they arrive with the 28th ranked Home rushing defense. The good news for the Giants is that the Packers, 5-0 SU, 13-3 SU in their last 16 Road games, are powering the 22nd ranked Road rushing attack on only 99.4 rushing yards per game. A league best 4-1 ATS in their last five games in outscoring their opponents by 11 points per game, the Packers sport a surprisingly weak Road passing defense this year; the Giants 9th ranked Home passing attack that is averaging 279 yards per game, and has slowed over the last two weeks, will need to attack early. 1-4 ATS in their last five games at Home, avoiding the fumbles that has paralyzed their momentum and the rushing attack will be a must. Powering more than 305 yards per game that the Giants have averaged over their last five games will also be key. Lastly, allowing 3.2 sacks per game, pressuring Rodgers into a mistake, and not allowing the momentum that teams have been driving in the second quarter will be just as important.

WINNER>>Packers 10 – GIANTS 38>>East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) – Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes and the New York Giants dominated the Green Bay Packers, 38-10, in a battle between the two most recent Super Bowl champions. Ahmad Bradshaw carried the ball 10 times for 58 yards and a score for the Giants, who stunned the Packers in a NFC Divisional playoff contest last season at Lambeau Field. Bradshaw also caught two passes for 61 yards. Andre Brown rushed for 64 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries for New York (7-4), which snapped a two-game skid and holds a two-game lead over the Redskins and Cowboys in the NFC East. Rueben Randle, Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz caught TD passes. The news was not all good for the Giants, however, as Brown suffered a broken fibula in the fourth quarter. Aaron Rodgers connected on 14- of-25 passes for 219 yards, one touchdown and an interception for the Packers (7-4), who had a five-game winning streak snapped. Green Bay fell one game behind the Bears for first place in the NFC North. Chicago beat Minnesota by a 28-10 margin on Sunday.

    I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
