3. Azeez Ojulari and Dexter Lawrence combine for a monster sack

This one was massive actually for mutliple reasons. The Packers had the ball in the Giants red zone, looking like they were going to potentially score a touchdown, with the chance to go for two and tie things up. However, Jordan Love wasn't able to find an open man on third down and Azeez Ojulari + Dexter Lawrence got home.

It was third down from the 17 yard line. However, after the sack, the Packers were pushed back to the 28 yard line and then Anders Carlson came out for a 45-year field goal. Carlson missed the FG and the Giants stayed up eight points. Without that sack, it would have been a much easier attempt for Carlson and he could have made things 21-16. Keep in mind that NY only won by two too.

Ojulari and Lawrence were able to fly into the backfield and bring Love down for a huge loss. Lawrence missed the Week 12 game with a hamstring injury, but goodness, it was amazing to have him back on the field. Ojulari has missed plenty of action due to an injury too, so you know he must have felt amazing to make this primetime play as well.
