Giants vs. Packers Divisional Playoffs: Looking Ahead to NFC Championship
With Brandon Jacobs' 14-yard touchdown run with 2:44 to go, the Giants have all but put away a victory against the Packers to advance to the NFC Championship next Sunday at San Francisco.
At first blush, the matchup couldn't be much more of a contrast from playing Green Bay. The 49ers are a team predicated on its defense and running game, even after San Francisco was able to win a wild divisional playoff against New Orleans on Saturday.
The most immediate concern for the Giants will be the health of defensive tackle Chris Canty, who was helped off the field shortly before Donald Driver's touchdown for the Packers with 4:52 remaining.
Canty needed a great deal of assistance to get off the field and his absence would alter the rotation of the interior defensive line going into a game against 49er Pro Bowl running back Frank Gore. Linval Joseph and Rocky Bernard would likely be called up to play more snaps on early downs.
