The New York Giants have emerged as a Super Bowl contender in the NFL playoffs, but in order for the Giants to continue on their run, they must get past NFL Most Valuable Player candidate Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in their NFC divisional round matchup.
This task, of course, will not be an easy one.
The Green Bay Packers were the best team this season with a 15-1 win-loss record, including a 38-35 victory over the New York Giants in Week 13 at MetLife Stadium.
Now, the Giants must travel to Green Bay and play on the frozen tundra that is Lambeau Field. In the last two seasons, the Packers are 15-1 at home during the regular season. During the playoffs, the Packers are 13-3 all-time, though they have lost three of their last five—the last loss coming in the 2007 NFC Championship Game against the New York Giants.
This divisional round meeting has the makings of an exciting high-scoring affair between two of the NFL’s premier passing offenses. With the advancement of their playoff runs riding on this clash, who has the edge in every facet of the game?
