The Green Bay Packers nearly pulled a victory over the New York Giants in the London game, but they weren’t quite close enough. Early in the fourth quarter, the game was tied 20-20 until the Giants came up 27-20. Green Bay made a huge attempt to come up in the last six minutes of the game, but they fell short with a final score of 27-22.
