Packers vs. Giants: A test of Green Bay's playoff prepardness?

New, comments

The Packers are on a roll after a shaky start and lead the NFC North. A first-round bye looks like a possibility. Can they beat a solid Giants team, on the road, without Clay Matthews, Charles Woodson and possibly Greg Jennings?

Sam Shields, Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews are still out for the Packers. Greg Jennings is listed as questionable, and it would be surprising if he started on Sunday night. For yet another week, an injury-riddled Green Bay team will have to make do with what they have against a solid opponent.

The New York Giants have been far from impressive in recent weeks, but the Packers are only slight favorites given their current injury woes. It took them a while to put away the Lions last week, and they're probably in for an even tougher game in the Meadowlands. Sunday night's game should be the best indicator yet of how prepared the Packers are for the playoffs. The game against Houston was a must-win, and Detroit aren't looking much like a playoff team. It' time to see what the Packers can do on the road, as a division leader.

Wide receiver Domenik Hixon and linebacker Jacquian Williams are the only certain absences for the Giants. Kenny Phillips and Keith Rivers are questionable. You can find the entire Packers' injury report right here.
