The Green Bay Packers are just about to “host” the New York Giants in London. With a lot going on, you can follow all of the action right here.

Dairyland Express has been preparing you for this game all week. Here are some of the preview articles you should catch up on:

This is the Packers’ first-ever game across the pond and it seems the fans have responded well. By all reports: There is green and gold as far as the eye can see surrounding the stadium. We’ll be updating you with the latest news, highlights, inactive and everything in between from now until the final snap. Make sure to follow along.

The Green Bay Packers are in London and set to kick off against the New York Giants. Follow along here for inactive, updates, highlights and more!


The Packers have listed their inactives with some positive news on the Green Bay side of the ball. Adrian Amos is active and ready to go. That’s huge news for a team who will need all hands on deck to stop stud running back Saquon Barkley.

One surprising piece of news is that Devonte Wyatt and Jonathan Ford are inactive. Green Bay will only have four defensive linemen in Kenny Clark, Dean Lowry, Jarran Reed and TJ Slaton. Considering the Giants’ penchant for running the ball, that’s a bold move.

Here are Green Bay’s full inactives:

  • Rasheed Walker
  • Sean Rhyan
  • Samori Toure
  • Devonte Wyatt
  • Jonathan Ford

The Giants received some big news of their own with Leonard Williams being ruled out. Williams is a huge part of their defensive line and was listed as questionable for this contest. They will also only have four active wide receivers so expect them to use a lot of heavy sets to pound the rock.

Here are New York’s full inactives:

  • Cor’Dale Flott
  • Kenny Golladay
  • Azeez Ojulari
  • Wan’Dale Robinson
  • Tyrod Taylor
  • Kadarius Toney
  • Leonard Williams

Pre-game Highlights

First Quarter

Packers’ first drive ends in points, as Mason Crosby drills a 46-yard field goal to give them a 3-0 lead. The big play on the drive was this third-down conversion from Aaron Rodgers to Randall Cobb.

Three three-and-outs (two by the Giants and one by the Packers) and an Amari Rodgers’ fumble on a punt return that was recovered by the good guys later, Green Bay finally put the ball in the end zone. Thanks to a Romeo Doubs 22-yard reception and a big defensive pass-interference penalty, the Packers worked their way inside the five-yard line before Rodgers found Allen Lazard:

The Giants responded thanks to a couple of breakdowns in coverage that allowed them to quickly move the ball down the field. A field goal put them on the board right before the first quarter closed. Packers: 10, Giants: 3

2nd Quarter

The Packers came right back at the Giants to build on their lead. Rodgers got rid of the ball like a hot potato and hit several Packers on quick routes. A beautiful play design led to a Marcedes Lewis touchdown reception–his first since November of 2020. Packers: 17, Giants: 3

New York came right back and drove 70 yards to put the ball in the endzone with time running down in the second quarter. If the Packers aren’t careful, the Giants could double up and tie the game with their first possession of the second half. Packers: 17, Giants 10

Despite poor clock management, Green Bay put three more points on the board right before halftime. Cobb continues to look spry with a couple more big plays and Mason Crosby knocks the field goal through the uprights.

Halftime: Packers: 20, Giants: 10

Third Quarter

The Packers’ secondary is having all sorts of issues. Darius Slayton, of all players, is giving them fits as he’s open all over the place. New York puts together another long drive that results in points. If we’re taking a glass half-full approach, at least the Packers’ defense held them to a field goal. Packers: 20, Giants: 13

The scoring streak ended as the Packers’ drove into New York territory before a third-down sack moved them out of field goal range. A great punt pinned the Giants inside the 10, but they’re already into the Packers’ territory and driving as the third quarter ends.  Packers: 20, Giants: 13

Fourth Quarter

I should’ve said the Packers’ scoring streak ended. The Giants drove 10+ plays for the third straight series and tied the game at 20. Green Bay’s defense has Daniel Jones looking like an MVP out there. Packers: 20, Giants: 20

The Giants continue to pour it on and take the lead. At one point, they were down 17-3 and have outscored the Packers 24-3 since. Barkley killed Green Bay again and the Packers’ tackling left a lot to be desired. Packers: 20, Giants: 27

The Packers messed around and found out. They drove inside the 10-yard line, but threw the ball twice on third-and-2, resulting in two tipped passes that fell incomplete. Giants take over on downs.

The Giants kneeled the ball three times before taking an extended safety on a punt. Packers: 22, Giants: 27

Following a David Bakhtiari false start, Rodgers’ hail mary has no chance and doesn’t even get off the ground. Packers get embarrassed in a stunning loss.
