The weather wasn’t great for the Packers and Giants, but that didn’t slow down Aaron Rodgers, as he completed 21-of-33 psses for 243 yards and four touchdowns. The Giants came into this game with a suspect pass defense and Rodgers took advantage, targeting his No. 1 receiver Davante Adams often.

Adams was the first player to get on the board, as he caught an 8-yard touchdown midway through the first quarter. Rodgers went on to target him a total of ten times, which Adams caught six of for 64 yards and two touchdowns. Adams came into this game with zero touchdowns.

Daniel Jones had another turnover plagued game, as he completed 20-of-37 passes for 240 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. Amazingly, backup tight end Kaden Smith led the team in receptions and yards, but Sterling Shepard did score the Giants only touchdown to help many DFS players.

Jonathan Williams outplayed Aaron Jones, rushing ten times for 41 yards and catching four passes for 26 more while Jones rushed 11 times for 18 yards and caught four passes for 13 yards. The Packers backfield will remain a committee.

This game was never really in doubt, as the Packers won 31-13 and had a lead throughout. The win helps them stay in first place in the NFC North.
