The NFL playoffs have finally arrived, but unfortunately for the casual fan, three of the four games during Wild Card Weekend don’t look too promising. However, we do have one matchup between two of the hottest teams in the league. The New York Giants are traveling up to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers in what should end up being the game of the weekend.
After missing the playoffs the previous five seasons since their 2011 Super Bowl win, the Giants are back in the postseason and looking to make some noise. Like their last two Super Bowl runs, New York has a stout defense and quarterback Eli Manning at the helm. If the Giants want to come away with a win this Sunday, the defense will have a tall task stopping the explosive Packers offense, and Eli and company will have to be able to put up some points on offense, which they haven’t been great at doing this year. The offense will also have to be able to sustain a few long drives to keep that Green Bay offense off the field.
Speaking of the Packers, Green Bay is playing as good as anyone in the league right now, winning their last six games after going 4-6 in their first ten games. Much like every other season, the Packers are led by their future Hall of Fame quarterback in Aaron Rodgers, who had another MVP-like season throwing for 40 touchdowns which led the league. Their defense has hit the injury bug pretty hard this year, so if the Pack want to move on to the Divisional Round next week, they’ll have to do so by taking New York receiver Odell Beckham Jr. completely out of the game.
Green Bay beat New York earlier this season, but the playoffs are very different from the regular season, and it could be anyone’s game. As a Giants fan, I’m very excited/nervous for this game, and cannot wait for Sunday.
