The Green Bay Packers will face the New York Giants Sunday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. in a matchup of two teams with elite passing offenses, subpar rushing offenses and, with the exception of the Giants' de-pantsing of the Atlanta Falcons last week, suspect defenses. Weather is a persistent question for playoff games in Wisconsin in January, but, according to Weather.com, snow won't be falling Sunday. There will, however, be winds between 15 and 25 m.p.h.
With winds like that, whether Aaron Rodgers and Eli Manning can complete passes with the accuracy they and their receivers are used to will be a huge factor in the ballgame. Lucky for Manning and Rodgers, they're each facing a team with a similar offensive identity. Everyone has to deal with the wind, after all.
