Prediction: Giants 20, Packers 13

Expect this game to be a low-scoring affair, which will hugely benefit the Giants.

The Packers late-season win streak has been predicated on stellar offensive performances, which will be extremely hard to replicate in below freezing temperatures in Green Bay Sunday night.

Conversely, the Giants game has been built on big plays, time of possession, and extremely stout defense; which is the blueprint for winning cold-weather games. Additionally, the veteran leadership on the Giants from Jonathan Casillas, Manning and others, will help alleviate the team’s nerves in front of a very hostile Lambeau Field crowd.

In a dome, or in warm weather, this matchup undoubtedly favors iGreen Bay. But on the frozen tundra, this game will go to the road team, moving the Giants on to the Divisional round.
