All of that would go to rest Sunday afternoon however, as the Green Bay Packers took care of the New York Giants in rout fashion, demolishing their opposition 38-13.
This dominating win got fans all over Wisconsin hyped and excited about another potential super bowl run.
Aaron Rodgers and @packers on fire keep this win streak alive at Dallas ?

Some fans also enjoyed thrashing New York’s top wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr., who struggled all night long.
