Packers have traveled long road to wild-card meeting with Giants

Green Bay is hot at the flawless time, headed into the playoffs after beating Detroit on Sunday night to claim the NFC North title and homefield advantage in the first round when they host the Giants. His air yards per attempt (yards minus yards after catch) went from 3.4 over the first 10 games to 5.14 - a figure that would have easily led the league over a full season - the last six weeks. Both games were at Lambeau. No reason one of these teams can represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. He came close, in 2011, but then he had to watch from an exercise bike on the sideline as Rogers and the Packers ran away with the game and into the Super Bowl that they'd end up winning.

It is indisputable the Giants have had the Packers' number in the playoffs. "The New York Giants and Green Bay Packers are huge draws".

Technically, Sunday's wild-card playoff game at Lambeau Field is a rematch of the Packers' 23-16 win against the Giants on October 9. Neither of those are samples worth drawing any conclusions from, but at least we don't see any signs that we ought to alter our practices just because it's the playoffs.

Speaking of the Green Bay Packers: Wow, what a finish to the season. Both teams have multiple playmakers on both sides of the ball (I didn't even mention Landon Collins and Julius Peppers!) and both quarterbacks have done big things in big games. Dak Prescott's two worst games of 2016 both came against NY, while Drew Brees was held to just 263 passing yards in a 16-13 loss.

Rodgers is also familiar with Giants coach Ben McAdoo, a former Packers assistant before becoming the Giants' offensive coordinator in 2014. CB Janoris Jenkins is banged up, but he should be playing on Sunday. RB James Starks is still in concussion protocol, but he isn't really needed right now, and CB Quinten Rollins is too, but he is vital to get healthy for Sunday.

The company also plans to release two versions of its Smart Assistant, with one designed for high quality audio playback. The camera gives users the ability to remotely check the inside of their fridge while they are out shopping for food.

The Giants and Packers along with the Detroit Lions are the three potential opponents the Cowboys will play.

But after listening to provided audio, this reporter, who was not present during the conference call, thinks it sounds like McCarthy says "be", not "beat". "There's nothing like a playoff game in Lambeau Field".

The late score also made Detroit teasers live and turned what would've been a great NFL Sunday for William Hill's 108 Nevada books into merely a good one. At 36, his hot streaks are fewer and farther between these days. But when all is said and done, I need to stick with a motto I am a firm believer in: Never bet against Aaron Rodgers, especially when he is playing well.

"Each year is a new year, new team, different players", Manning said.

McCarthy's response: "Well, I'm just focused on the team that we played earlier in the year. and focused on the team that we are going to be on Sunday".

What player is key to the Packers' defense?

The rosters definitely have changed. Defense has been huge for Big Blue, as it has helped them win games and make the postseason for the first time in five years.

The Green Bay Packers started the 2016 National Football League season off extremely slow and few gave them a chance to make a run back to the playoffs.

Over the first 10 games of the season Rodgers saw man coverage on 48.1 percent of his dropbacks, the highest rate in the NFL. They have Odell Beckham Jr., a receiver who defensive back Micah Hyde said can turn a 3-yard hitch into a 70-yard touchdown at any time. In terms of DVOA, Football Outsiders ranked the NY defense behind only the historically good Broncos in 2016. For a town that built the auto industry, gave the world Motown music, and has celebrated various championships from our other sports teams, don't we deserve a little more than just backing into the playoffs?
