With the biggest game in five years coming up for the New York Giants, we examine how they’ll fare against the Green Bay Packers.

  • New York Giants (11-5)
  • Green Bay Packers (10-6)
  • NFL, Sunday, Jan. 8, 4:40 p.m. ET, FOX
  • Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin
This weekend, the New York Giants will begin their first playoff journey since 2011 against a very familiar foe.

The Giants will travel to the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field, to take on the Green Bay Packers. This marks the third time that the Giants have traveled to Green Bay for a playoff game since 2007, with New York emerging victorious in the previous two contests.

Despite their history, and the fact that the Giants finished one game better than the Packers in the regular season, Vegas has New York as four-point underdogs heading into this game. Certainly, this has a lot to do with the 23-16 loss the Giants suffered during an earlier trip to Lambeau this season.

Nonetheless, here is a preview of this weekend’s marquee matchup.
