NFC Championship Game: Packers Ready for Giants

Chris GrinsteadCorrespondent IJanuary 14, 2008

Everyone expected to see the NFC Championship Game being played in Irving, Texas, but that's not the case.

The Dallas Cowboys choked at home against division rival New York Giants 21-17 in the divisional round of the playoffs, while the Packers cruised to a 42-20 win at home over the Seattle Seahawks.

Where does that leave us? Favre and Manning will battle it out. Old school vs. New school.

Who will take the cake? Packers and Patriots play a rematch of Super Bowl XXXI.

Why?  Brett  will have a phenomenal game  against a beaten up Giants defense. Their top 3 cornerbacks will most likely be out which means that Favre can throw to Jennings all day long.

The only problem with the mentality of pass first is the fact that New York has quite the D-Line. They will not give Favre much time to pass. The O-Line better hold up unless they want to watch the Super Bowl from home.

The Pack also needs to have a great game on special teams or else they may be staying home. All this may sound like too much for the Packers to do in one game but the  Giants make it easy on them coming into Lambeau beaten and battered.

Final Prediction: Packers win it 31-21. Good Luck in the Super Bowl!
