2012 NFL Playoffs, Packers Vs. Giants: Lawrence Tynes Talks 2008 Game-Winner

There are quite a few story lines heading into Saturday's 2012 NFL Playoffs contest between the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers, but the most intriguing is the postseason rematch factor, as in '08 the Giants defeated the Packers, 23-20, in overtime. The divisional-round win, which featured Giants' kicker Lawrence Tynes nailing a game-winning field goal in overtime, cemented the victory and helped propel New York to a Super Bowl title.

On Wednesday, Tynes talked about making that kick and what it meant for his career.

"I wouldn't be talking to you right now. I mean if you miss three kicks in the fourth quarter of a championship game, I mean I would assume that I probably wouldn't be here. I was on a one-year deal anyway. I have done a great job since then, I have had a nice career here, but obviously you do have to think what if I didn't make that kick."
