Talk about a total beatdown.

After sleep walking through the first quarter, the Giant offense woke up and rattled off 24 unanswered points as they topped the Falcons, 24-2. Eli Manning threw for 277 yards and three touchdown passes, two to Hakeem Nicks. The much maligned Giants rushing attacked compiled 172 yards, its highest output of the season. More impressively, the Giant defense shut out the high powered Atlanta offense, holding the Falcons to only 247 yards. I’ve been saying it all season long–the Giants can be the league’s best team when healthy. And this team is finally healthy.

Next Sunday at 4:30 EST, the Giants head to Lambeau Field to take on the 15-1 Packers. The last time the Giants played in Lambeau? They beat Brett Favre to head to (and win) the Super Bowl.

During the regular season, the Packers beat the Giants, 38-35 at Metlife Stadium, handing the G-Men their fourth straight loss. These two teams were tied with a minute remaining, but four quick Aaron Rodgers strikes put the Pack in field goal range and effectively won the game. Eli threw for 347 yards and 3 TDs, two to Nicks and one to Travis Beckum. Aaron Rodgers was one better, tossing four touchdowns against a depleted Giant secondary. The Giants were able to disrupt Rodgers, sacking him three times. That pass rush will get a boost when a healthy Osi and rejuvented Justin Tuck take the field this Sunday. The different between the Giant defense of then to the Giant defense of now is like night and day.

We’ll have more for you later on this week, but the stars are aligning for the Giants at the right time. The team has momentum, winning three straight games. The ground game is producing and Eli is being Eli. More importantly, the Giant defense suffocated the Falcon offense and will look to bring the heat on Aaron Rodgers.

I can smell a Giant upset coming..Can you?
