Green Bay Packers fans have waited longer than just "all day" for Sunday Night Football; after the team's week 4 bye week, we have been waiting two whole weeks to see the team back on the field after their victory over the Detroit Lions. Tonight, they are back on the Lambeau Field turf, trying to improve their record to 3-1 on the season.

Standing in their way are the New York Giants, coached by former Packers assistant Ben McAdoo. The Giants have been a thorn in the Packers' side in recent years, winning each of the last three games between the two teams. The Packers' last victory came in 2011, when they won at MetLife Stadim 38-35 on their way to a 15-1 regular season record. The Giants then started their winning streak in the Divisional Round of the playoffs that year, knocking off the top-seeded Packers.

This year, Green Bay's offense is still looking to establish and maintain its identity, but it got off to a great start in the first half against the Lions. Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdown passes before halftime, which was enough to hold off a rally by Detroit.

Join us for the first half of tonight's game here.
