One of the things that a lot of people have on their minds as the New York Giants get ready to play the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night is, what is the condition of their secondary? Well, there is plenty of uncertainty there, at least as of the middle of the week, but there is also little bit of optimism. Things could not get worse from the injury standpoint than they did for this team as it approached last Monday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. So we guess everything is good news from here. The Packers also hope to have a healthier defense than they did in their last game, in time for the 8:30 PM ET starting time at Lambeau Field. NBC will televise the game live, and if you are a BetAnySports customer, you can avail yourself of real-time wagering while the game is in progress, when you access the state-of-the-art online bookie software available from Live Betting Ultra.

The Giants were missing a load of people in the defensive backfield, including Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Eli Apple, the swift rookie out of Ohio State, Darian Thompson and Nat Merhe. Well, it’s quite possible that Cromartie and Apple will be ready for action for the Sunday night game. And the Giants did not go out of their way to sign any additional safeties, so Thompson and/or Merhe might be possibilities to play.

Things were very promising for the New Yorkers at the start of the season, with consecutive wins, although they were very close, with the 16-13 victory over New Orleans being particularly dubious from an offensive standpoint. But then the Giants started to behave like their old selves, blowing a 12-point lead against the Washington Redskins. That brought them to Minnesota, a team that has put together a formula of minimizing mistakes and playing dogged defense. It was a little too much for Ben McAdoo’s team to handle.

Green Bay also suffered a loss at the hands of the Vikings, but they are by no means out of the running in the NFC North. Aaron Rodgers, a master of the short to mid-range passing game, had four touchdowns in the first half of this team’s last game against the Detroit Lions, as the Packers look like they were going to blow out Matthew Stafford & Co., but they allowed Detroit to get back into the game, holding on for a 34-27 victory.

BetAnySports patrons know it was very encouraging for them to get 101 yards receiving from Jordy Nelson, who came back this season from a torn ACL that sidelined him for the entire 2015 campaign. And Eddie Lacy had 103 yards on the ground. Now coming off a bye week, defensive coordinator Dom Capers has had an opportunity to work on getting his unit healthier. Cornerback Sam Shields’ status is probably going to be up in the air until close to game time, because he has not been cleared yet from the NFL’s concussion protocol. But we are likely to see the return of standout linebacker Clay Matthews, as well as safety Morgan Burnett and linebacker Datone Jones. Green Bay is going to need people in the secondary to deal with the likes of Odell Beckham and Victor Cruz, and it is quite likely that Eli Manning is going to put the football in the air plenty, because the Packers simply snuff out opposition ground attacks, allowing only 1.8 yards per carry. Interestingly enough, since World War II, only four defenses have had a stat like that after their first three games of the season.
