FIRST TAKE: Packers S Morgan Burnett on the Giants’ offense — “Those guys are very athletic receivers, good receivers, some of the tops in the game. They have a really great offense out there. They’re led by, in my opinion, one of the top quarterbacks in the game, in Eli. So it’s going to be a fun matchup. I think that’s why you signed up and dreamed about playing the NFL because you want to go against the best. I think it should be a lot of fun.”
