  • November 17, 2013 - 11:43 PM

NEXT OPPONENT: GREEN BAY (5-5)

The Packers have lost three straight games after winning four consecutive, including over the Vikings 44-31 on Oct. 27.

OPPONENT WEEK 11

Giants 27, Packers 13

Packers QB Scott Tolzien threw for 339 yards, but he had three interceptions, including a 24-yard return for a TD by Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul to seal the victory.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

Scott Tolzien, quarterback

Tolzien made his first career start Sunday as Rodgers’ replacement and completed 70 percent of his passes. The ex-Badgers quarterback also had three costly interceptions in the loss and finished with a 65.7 quarterback rating.

OUTLOOK

The Vikings have musical chairs at quarterback. The absence of Rodgers has resulted in three straight losses for the Packers, but it’s a home game. Outlook: Horns down.
