The Packers have a five-game winless streak for the first time since 2008, showing how valuable Aaron Rodgers is for the franchise. Rodgers has missed four-plus games since fracturing his left collarbone.
One by one, the Giants began to identify, and isolate, their issues: too many turnovers, an inability to run the ball and injuries on the offensive line. Now, they head into Sunday's game against the Redskins on a clear upward trend with four wins in five games.
This latest version of Brady vs. Manning was a rout.
On top of their games last season, their first as starting quarterbacks, a variety of circumstances have conspired to test each player's aspirations over the past several months. Those issues have fueled in-depth examinations of their performance in a season in which it seemed certain they would ascend to superstardom.
San Francisco averaged 34.8 points per game during a five-game winning streak that lasted into its Nov. 3 bye week.

Passing yardage and points are going up, up, up in the NFL, as are TV ratings and, of course, revenues. So all must be well with America's most popular sport, right? Not so fast.
Just like the Packers' offense, fantasy owners with Rodgers on their team are going to experience a dip in production. Even with Rodgers having a "mediocre" year, it's unlikely the backup can fill the void. If you're lucky enough to have Tony Romo or Matthew Stafford, good drafting. If not, good luck trying to grab Case Keenum or Nick Foles off the waiver wire.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he has a fractured left collarbone and he doesn't know how long he'll be out.
The 2011 NFL MVP got hurt after getting sacked by Shea McClellin on a third-down play during the Packers' first series while he was scrambling outside the pocket.

The Chiefs-Broncos game in Week 11 is moving to prime time.
When Brandon Meriweather returns to the field on Sunday after being reinstated from a suspension, how he plays – and more accurately, the way he plays – will be scrutinized by players, coaches, commentators and everyone else interested in the evolution of football.
After saying he's going to "take peoples' knees out" to avoid another suspension for hits to the head, Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather struck another blow _ declaring that "people who beat their girlfriends should be kicked out of the league."
