-

The Green Bay Packers will make history when they play in London for their first time on Sunday. In the NFL’s second International Series, they will take on the New York Giants at Tottenham Hotspur stadium. The Packers and Giants kick off the action at 9:30 a.m. ET on NFL+ and NFL Network. 

After losing the season opener to Minnesota Vikings, the Packers (3-1) have won three of their last three games. Aaron Rodgers, the star quarterback, is off to an excellent start. He completed 69% of his passes and threw for 935 yards with six touchdowns, three interceptions, and a passer rating of 95.6. When asked about his experience playing in London, Rodgers, a four-time NFL MVP, said that he was happy to travel and play in a foreign country. 

“We’re excited to be here. And this is not just a normal road trip even though the coaches speak is always, ‘Hey, we’re here to win a game, yada yada yada,'” Rodgers claimed, per NFL.com. “This is definitely more special. … This is one of those games I think at the end of your career when you think back on, it’s going to be a special moment to be able to play in front of the fans here.”  

The Giants (3-1) are coming off a victory over the Chicago Bears 20-12. Running back Saquon Barkley, who has rushed for 463 yard and two touchdowns in four games, is the key to the Gaints’ success. Although Daniel Jones is a solid quarterback, he is still recovering from an injury.He is expected to play Sunday. Like the Packers, the Giants are excited about playing in London. 

“You have to take it in at the end of the day, you’re blessed,” Barkley stated this, per the Giants official website. “We’re in London getting ready to play a football game, but you’ve got to keep the same mindset that it’s a business trip and you know what the end goal is. That’s do whatever you can to come out with a win against a really good team. When you can, have your fun, but when we’ve got to lock in, lock in and get ready for Sunday.”
