The New York Giants will face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at 4:40 PM ET at Lambeau Field in the Wildcard round of the NFC Playoffs.Both of these teams are two of the hottest teams in the NFL. The Giants have won nine out of their last 11, and the Packers have won their last six games.
These two teams met in Week 5 where the Packers won 23-16. The Packers were coming off a bye week, and the Giants were playing on a short week having played the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night.
The way the Giants defense has been playing over the last month, they will feel confident playing against the high-powered Packers offense. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has thrown for 18 touchdowns in their last seven games, while the Giants defense has allowed the fewest touchdowns this season with 25.
The Giants have had success playing the Packers in the playoffs at Lambeau Field over the past nine years. In the 2007 NFC Championship Game, they defeated the Packers 23-20 and beat them again in the 2011 Divisional Round, 37-20. In fact, Eli Manning has as many playoff wins at Lambeau Field as Rodgers, with two.

The Giants are hoping that Manning can once again catch fire in the playoffs and lead the Giants back to the Super Bowl. Manning has a postseason record of 8-3 and is 5-1 on the road. His performance in the playoffs is the reason why he will end up in the Hall of Fame one day.
So, the Giants and their fans will be hoping for a little Deja Vu, as the Giants will look to defeat the Packers on the road in the playoffs for the third time in nine years.
