Divisional Round Afternoon Thread: Packers Vs. Giants

This is the main event of the day. The winner of this game faces the 49ers next week for the right to go to Indianapolis to play in the Super Bowl. The Packers and Giants square off in Lambeau Field in a rematch of their crazy regular season contest at the Meadowlands. The Packers escaped with a 38-35 victory on a last second field goal.

I'm not quite so sure I expect a similar result today. Whatever my desire is for the 49ers next playoff game, I think the Packers win by about ten today. They are back home and had some time to rest and recuperate. They had as much need for that bye week as anybody with some of their injuries.

The Packers sit as 7 1/2 point favorites and are getting back a key weapon in the form of Greg Jennings. If he can get on track, that is a huge weapons for them. They have been without Jennings for the past month, so getting him back is a big help for Aaron Rodgers.

The Giants are a bit banged up after last week's roll-up of the Atlanta Falcons, but they'll be all hands on deck for the game. Ahmad Bradshaw has missed some practice time, but said he will play today. This is not really a game you sit out barring a significant medical issue.

Does anybody see a Giants upset at Lambeau Field?
