GREEN BAY PACKERS UPDATE 

lPASSING ATTACK SHOULD THRIVE VS. GIANTS, BUT WHAT ABOUT LACY?

If Green Bay can't follow the rival Minnesota Vikings' lead in slowing New York's potent passing attack, Aaron Rodgers and his crew of receivers will have to be up to the task in a potential prime-time shootout.

The Packers should be able to exploit a Giants secondary that is decimated by injury.

Meanwhile, the Giants' run defense had been pretty good against the run until Monday night, when they allowed three big-play runs of 10 or more yards to Jerrick McKinnon, including a 25-yarder that is the longest run against the Giants' run defense this season.

In fact, the Giants' run defense has been slowly slipping down the ladder in the NFL rankings after rising to the fourth overall spot in Week 2, the Giants slipped to fifth in Week 3 and ninth after Week 4.

Although he has yet to rush for a touchdown, Lacy is currently averaging 5.0 yards per carry. He has been running with power and has had better luck navigating his slimmed down frame through tiny creases
