PFW executive editor and resident Packers expert Dan Arkush offers his prediction for the Week 13 showdown vs. the Giants at the Meadowlands.

As I assess Green Bay's remaining opponents, it really does seem like the Giants might have the best shot at keeping the Packers from running the table. But I see Eli Manning & Co. coming up just short of accomplishing that goal in what I think might be a pretty high-scoring affair.

A key for the Giants will be Ahmad Bradshaw, a potential big gun who's been out for a while. I could see the Giants' ground game giving Green Bay's LB corps, which is missing A.J. Hawk and Desmond Bishop, some problems. But I think the Giants' shaky LB corps will have bigger problems handling all the on-the-money underneath throws likely to be delivered by Aaron Rodgers on a semi-regular basis. I know I said it not long ago in this space, but I also think Jermichael Finley could be ready for a huge game.

Prediction: Packers 32, Giants 28
