Both teams are 3-1 but are being perceived quite differently by pundits and fans. To put things plainly, the Packers are a good 3-1 while the Giants are a bad 3-1.
The fact is both teams have major flaws. The Giants have managed to eke out wins over Tennessee and Carolina, lost by six to Dallas and then handled the Bears last week at home.
The Packers opened the season with an uninspired road loss to the Vikings before running off three wins over offensively-challenged Chicago, Tampa Bay and New England.
The Giants are actually averaging more points per game (19.0) than the Packers (18.8), and Green Bay is allowing 17.3 PPG versus the Giants’ 17.8.
The over/under had dropped down to 40.5 points as injuries, jet lag and uncertainties on both offenses are being baked in.
