New York is for real
The Giants came into the game at 3-1 through a month of the season, but had yet to have that statement win that makes the league believe they are a real contender in the NFC.
The Packers landed the first few blows in the first half when Aaron Rodgers led three scoring drives on Green Bay’s first four drives. Meanwhile Daniel Jones and New York went three and out on their first two possessions.
After Mason Crosby hit a field goal to open the scoring, Allen Lazard had a two yard touchdown completion to go up 10-3 at the end of the first quarter. It looked like it was going to get out of hand when the Packers extended the lead with a Mercedes Lewis touchdown midway through the second quarter.
Green Bay starts strong
The tides started to turn when Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley orchestrated a touchdown drive on the next possession. Daniel Bellinger capped the 11 play, 86 yard drive to close the gap before the Packers snuck a field goal in as the first half ran out to make it 20-10.
The Giants have been a second half team all season, and showed that they save their best until coming out of the halftime break. The Giants scored on their final five possessions to complete the comeback win in London.
Graham Gano inched the Giants to within seven points of the Packers with a field goal on the first drive of the third quarter. New York Giants defense stepped up coming out of the locker room, keeping Aaron Rodgers and the Packers scoreless in the final 30 minutes.
Giants defense shuts down Rodgers in second half
Jones and the Giants tied up the game at the beginning of the fourth quarter to tie the game up at 20. Aaron Rodgers would get the ball back with just over 10 minutes to go in the fourth quarter, but again the Giants defense came up with a big stop, forcing the Packers into their second three and out of the game.
Six plays later, Saquon Barkley had a two yard sprint to the pylon to give the Giants their first lead of the day.
The Packers had plenty of time to drive down the field to tie up the game, but once they got into the red zone the Giants defense came up big defletciting two straight Aaron Rodgers passes on third and fourth down to close the game out.

MVP needs some help
Aaron Rodgers has won two of this four MVP awards in the last two seasons, but this year the Packers offense has struggled to find their flow after losing some big stars over the offseason. Rodgers is averaging just 233 yards a game with 6 TDs and 3 INTs.
Lazard getting a few touches in a a footy stadium from London. The Packers receiver went for over 100 yards last week for the first time this season, can he do it again against this top 10 NY pass defense?
The Passing game may not be the Giants' strength, but with a healthy Saquon Barkley do they really need a great passing game? He is the leading rusher in the league with 463 yards and two TDs this year.
Jones expected to start
Giants QB1 Daniel Jones was injured in the game against the Bears. Despite the ankle injury he had to return to the field after back up Tyrod Taylor suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter. Jones will be under center today in London, but remember he scored two TDs with his legs last week. How effective will his run game be while nursing an ankle injury?
The Giants coming into to Tottenham Stadium with the casual elegance of a country gentleman. This will be the third overseason the Giants have played. They won the very first London game when they beat the Dolphins back in 2007. Nine years later they returned to the UK and beat the Rams 17-10.
The four time MVP, Aaron Rodgers is in the building. This is the first time the Packers have travelled across the pond for a game. Rodgers has done almost everything in the league, but he has never played a a game after making the trip across the pond.
Packers last week
The Packers needed overtime to beat a New England Patriots team that was with out their starting quarterback, Mac Jones, and saw their back up Brian Hoyer was knocked out of the game early in the first half. Bailey Zappe gave the Aaron and the Rodgers all they could handle, but Aaron Jones and the run game made the difference in Lambeau last week. Jones had 110 yards on 16 carries and AJ Dillon had 73 yards on 17 carries. The Pats to the Pack to overtime, but it was a Mason Crosby kick
Giants last week
The Giants are getting good at winning ugly. Last week New York saw two of their quarterbacks go down with injury, so Saquon Barkley had to fill in under center, or in the wildcat and play quarterback for most of the last quarter. After scoring two rushing TDs, Daniel Jones went down with an ankle injury, and Tyrod Taylor was forced out of the game after suffering a concussion. The passing game totaled just 82 yards, but Barkley had 146 yards on 31 carries as the Giants held of the Chicago Bears, 20-12.
We are live from London
The Packers and the Giants are both coming off big Week 4 wins. The Packers were expected to be in this situation a month into the season. The New York Giants however are one of the surprises of the season. Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley have revived hopes in the Big Apple but today will be their first real test of the season as they take on the reigning MVP of the NFL.
