Its on FOX the best sports channel for football.
What do you need to know? GB D is one of the games best...potential top 5 D. DL features Kampman who had double digit sacks last year, LB's AJ Hawk (came off a nice rookie season) and Nick Barnett (shadowed Brian Westbrook last week nicely) and a pair of cover corners in Al Harris and Charles Woodson who wont allow Plax/Toomer to get off.
GB offense is a disaster...they have no established runner as they search for one. Outside of WR Driver the rest are inexperienced/young guys. And the Favre factor...does he play good to great or does he play avg to poor? He's the type who will close his eyes and throw into triple coverage.
On the opposite end NYG is battling injuries...starting RB Jabcobs is out. Eli Manning has a shoulder injury he is gonna play with (ask AJ Hawk or DE Jenkins to KO him)...and on the defensive end? NYG is just ugly. Strahan missed all of preseason because he held out wanting more money. Now he is trying to play himself into game shape and is the only threat on D. NYG secondary is weak.
Basically the keys to the game are these
1. NYG offense vs GB D
Whoever wins these battles wins the game. NYG is favored because they are at home. Should be a close game that NYG pull out since Eli is going to play.
