The Must Watch NFL Game This Weekend: New York Giants At Green Bay Packers

The time is here. NFL playoffs. We have been waiting all year and have finally reached the point every team plays for.

There have been so many intriguing stories this season. Whether it be the revived Cowboys led by the rookie duo of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot or the surging Green Bay Packers who stringed together one of the greatest finishes to a season in recent memory, this season truly has been one to remember.

The AFC side of the playoffs appears to be set; at least that’s what many people are hypothesizing. With a strong Patriots team and no overwhelming competition in front of them, there is not much excitement for the AFC playoffs.

The NFC playoffs, on the other hand, are a completely different story. There are the Giants who always turn it up come playoff time; the Packers who have won 6 straight games; the Cowboys who have been the story of the year with their young talent and elite offensive line; the Seahawks who have one of the most balanced teams in the league; even the Lions who have struggled as of late but have put together one of the best seasons the franchise has had in a while.

There are so many variables in many different games that are being held by a string. While this side of the playoffs proves to be very exciting, the one game that everyone should keep their eyes on is the New York Giants vs. the Green Bay Packers.

There are two factors that make this game the most intruding.

First, is the Giants tendency to turn things up when it comes to playoff time. We saw it once in 2008 and again in 2012. Even when everyone counts the giants out, they come back to shock the world. The leader of both of these Giants teams who won the super bowl previously was Eli Manning who will be back with his new, and very young, set of wide receivers. While Manning has struggled at times this year, the combination of a lackluster Green Bay secondary and defensive line along with his ability to rise to the occasion during the playoffs, you have to give this Giants team a chance.

The second factor that makes this game so interesting is Aaron Rodgers. Over the past couple of years, we have seen Rodgers prove that he is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. But over the past couple of weeks, Rodgers has elevated himself to an unparalleled level. Ever since he made the infamous “I think we can run the table” statement when his team was 4-6, Rodgers has flicked the switch and it seems like no one can stop him. Not only is he laser sharp with his accuracy but he can escape a tight pocket when he has no other option.

This game will surely be one you don’t want to miss.

The New York Giants travel to Lambeau Field on Sunday, Jan. 9th to take on the Green Bay Packers. Be sure to tune in at 4:40 p.m. on Fox
