A 7-7 start while the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers were soaring to the NFC’s top seed with just a single loss? The New York Giants had the NFL’s best team right where they wanted them. Going from late-season mediocrity to surprisingly appearing in championship games is becoming a habit for the Giants. Four years after taking down the undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, fourth-seeded New York (11-7) stormed into historic Lambeau Field and left with an impressive 37-20 victory over Green Bay (15-2) to earn a trip to next week’s NFC title game in San Francisco. In 2007, the Giants were known as road warriors. On Sunday, they became the first team to win in Green Bay this season, and the only one to triumph away from home in eight NFL postseason games this year. Complementing a big first half from quarterback Eli Manning and a career-high 165 receiving yards (on seven catches) from wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (who also had two scores, including a sensa...

It's Business As Usual For the Giants

Some would call what transpired Sunday night an upset or a fluke. Is anyone really suprised by the "upset" though? The Giants went in to Lambeau Field and routed the hometown Packers 37-20. Big Blue had great performances all around and now travel to San Fransisco for a showdown with the 49ers. Here are some keys to the Giants win, and what to look for in the NFC Championship...

Lupica: Big Blue believers

It will be harder this time for Eli Manning and the Giants at Lambeau Field, even if the weather conditions aren’t supposed to be. It is a better Packers team this time and a better Packers quarterback. The Giants go up against 15-1 this time at Lambeau, go up against Aaron Rodgers having as great a regular season as any quarterback has ever had, in Green Bay or anywhere else.

Giants vs Packers Rematch: Three Reasons Why the Giants Will Win in Green Bay

In this NFC Division Round game between the Giants and the Packers, the Giants are considered to be the heavy underdogs against a Packers team that went 15-1 this past season. They will face off on Sunday at 4:30 PM EST. Both teams are now healthy and it should be a great re-match to the game they had in Week 13 at MetLife Stadium, in which the Giants narrowly lost by a score of...

01/16 (Giants, Wow) Quickie

Hey, don't miss Quickish's NFL stream this morning, with some smart takes on yesterday's games.The Packers were a great story this season -- a mini-dynasty (or standard version) in the making. The Giants waltzing into Lambeau and throttling them is an even better story, the kind of you-kind-of-hope-it-will-happen-but-don't-expect-it-to-happen result that makes sports...

Fun With Extrapolation: Quarterback Edition

So what I did here was extrapolate how many fantasy points quarterbacks would have if they started all 16 games. To make this list you either have to have played 8+ games or have been drafted in fantasy leagues in the top 24 QBs which really is only Peyton Manning and Donovan McNabb. So unfortunately I didn’t add Matt Flynn but if I had he would have averaged 44 fantasy points...

It's Only Rock N Roll But I Like It! Divisional Playoffs Edition

New York Giants 37, Green Bay 20 – Betterman by Pearl Jam It feels a little like 2007. It was always known around the league that if there was one team that matched up well against the Packers it was the Giants. The G-Men have the pass rush it takes to slow down the Packers offense and the ground and pound running game to keep Rodgers off the field. On top of that they have an...

Cowboys Are Best in NFC, Right?

The Dallas Cowboys beat the San Francisco 49ers in "The Stick" with Tony Romo playing with a collapsed lung and broken ribs with a stunning overtime victory in what ended up being the Cowboys' best win of 2011 back in Week 2. The Cowboys had the New York Giants against the ropes before Eli Manning led a remarkable comeback down by double digits with under five minutes...

Dress the way you please and put your mind at ease It’s a city known for its freedom Cycles shining bright break the silence of the night Inhibitions, no, you don’t need them, no,no,no   After watching last night’s Giants victory over the Packers, I sat in stunned silence to the point my son was looking for a mirror to shove under my nose.
