The New York Giants are not only back in the playoff hunt with a four-game winning streak, they're calling the plays that get them those wins.
That's exactly what Jason Pierre-Paul did against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Mike Neal's comfort level at his new position is being quickly put to the test by the Packers.
Green Bay drafted him in 2010 as a defensive lineman. This year, he transitioned to outside linebacker. Now he'll need to assume even more responsibility with four-time Pro Bowler Clay Matthews expected to miss at least a couple weeks with a broken right thumb.
James Jones' 83-yard touchdown reception late in the third quarter was just the big-play spark the Green Bay Packers needed to liven up an offense that otherwise settled for field goals in a 22-9 win Sunday over the undermanned Detroit Lions.
Colin Kaepernick threw for a career-high 412 yards and three touchdowns to outduel Aaron Rodgers, and the San Francisco 49ers held off the Green Bay Packers 34-28 on Sunday in the season opener for both teams.
