Giants Upset Packers in London Thriller

The New York Giants gutted out another tough win in Week 5, coming back from a 20-10 halftime deficit to shock the Green Bay Packers at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England. The Giants move to a surprising 4-1 through five weeks, and last year's top-seeded Packers fall to 3-2.
Running back Saquon Barkley added to his legend this morning. After exiting in the second half with a shoulder injury, Barkley made a dramatic return to key the Giants' go-ahead touchdown, hauling in a 41-yard catch-and-run before eventually scoring his third rushing touchdown of the season from two yards out. Barkley led the league through four weeks with 570 yards from scrimmage, and his performance this week will grow his star all the more.
Meanwhile, the Packers offensive struggles reared their ugly head again in the second half. After putting up 20 in the first two quarters, the Packers were blanked in the final 30 minutes before the Giants took an intentional safety in the game's waning seconds. Rodgers peppered veterans Randall Cobb and Allen Lazard with 21 targets, all but ignoring rookie receivers Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs. Through five games of the 2022 regular season, Rodgers sports a career-worst 5.79 net yards per attempt and the team has scored a middling 19.4 points per game.
In Week 6, the Packers will have an opportunity to rebound when they host the New York Jets, and the New York Giants will do battle with the Baltimore Ravens at MetLife Stadium.
