It will be the seventh time they have met in the playoffs. In those six playoff games, the Packers are 4-2. Five of the games decided NFL Championships in the pre-Super Bowl era and the last time the Packers beat the Giants in the post-season, John F. Kennedy was President of the United States.
The Packers are favored in this game but the Giants gave them one of their few close games of the year back in early December when they hosted the Packers in New York. Green Bay won, 38-35, but it was one of just a few occasions all year when the Packers were at least tested.
If Green Bay wins the game, they'll host the NFC Championship game against either the 49ers or Saints. If the Giants win then the winner of the 49ers and Saints game will host the NFC Championship game.
