Sunday afternoon, the New York Giants will head to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers for the chance to go to the NFC championship.

The game will be a rematch of their Week 13 showdown, where the Packers were able to squeak out a 38-35 victory thanks to a last-second field goal by kicker Mason Crosby. Green Bay was undefeated at the time, and the Giants played them the toughest anyone had up until that point.

The Giants had tied the game at 35 with just 58 seconds left to go, but that was far too much time for Aaron Rodgers to drive the Packers down the field to put them in position for the game-winning kick.

New York still played a great game and could have easily won if they had been able to limit their turnovers. An interception returned for a touchdown by Clay Matthews was one of the crucial turning points of the game. 

The Giants will get the chance for revenge on the Packers this Sunday. They are one of the few teams built to take them out.

Here are five reasons why the Giants will give Green Bay trouble this weekend:
