New York Giants Vs. Green Bay Packers, NFL Playoffs 2012: First Look

The revitalized New York Giants try to continue their match through the 2012 NFL Playoffs this weekend when they invade Lambeau Field to face the defending Super Bowl championship Green Bay Packers (4:30 p.m. ET/FOX). The 15-1 Packers are the top-seeded team in the NFC, while the 10-7 NFC East champion Giants are the fourth seed.

The two teams met in Week 13 of the regular season at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. The then-unbeaten Packers escaped with a 38-35 victory, their 12th of the season, on a field goal by Mason Crosby as time expired.


Game Date/Time: Sunday, Jan. 15, 4:30 p.m. ET

TV: FOX

Betting Odds: Packers by 9


The Giants have been hoping for another chance at the Packers ever since.

"I think we did [want a rematch], but more than anything we just wanted the opportunity to keep playing, regardless of who we were going to face," said Giants defensive end Justin Tuck. "It just happens to be the Green Bay Packers and we're looking forward to that, but we don't care who it is at this point. To be the best, you have to beat the best and we'll have that opportunity on Sunday."

The two teams will be reprising their NFC title game meeting at Lambeau on Jan. 20, 2008. The Giants, of course, won that game, 23-20 in overtime, en route to winning the Super Bowl.

The Giants advanced with a 24-2 first-round victory over the Atlanta Falcons. The Packers had a bye.
