Giants-Packers a formula for offensive fireworks
“Eli doesn’t move to run, but he moves to buy time for those receivers,” Capers said. “They do a good job of adjusting their routes. I’ve seen him move _ he moves more to his right than he does his left _ but he can move and still throw the ball with some accuracy. I think he’s doing a better job with that.”
“He’s always been able to make every throw,” Raji said. “Just when he’s choosing to make those throws, I think he’s doing a fantastic job.”
And for all their faults, the Packers defense has lived off interceptions this year, picking off an NFL-best 31 passes this season.
“In their secondary at least, they like to gamble a lot, they like to take a lot of chances and risks,” Cruz said. “Which means they either win or they lose big, which explains why they lead the league in interceptions and why they lead the league in giving up big plays, they are tops in the league in giving up big plays. So we understand that and we’ve seen it on film.”
“They try to make some big plays so they give up a few plays,” Manning said. “But especially with an offense like they have, that has the ability to score and score quickly, you can’t give them extra opportunities. You can’t give them a short field. We have to take care of the football.”
That’s the challenge for a Packers defense that hopes to make a fresh start in the playoffs.
“I think our defensive guys are excited about the opportunity,” Capers said. “I think we know what we’ve got to do. We’re facing an offense that’s hitting on all cylinders. They did a really nice job against the Falcons last week so they come in with momentum.”
