Giants Vs. Packers Score, NFL Playoffs: Green Bay Defense Holds Up, Forces Field Goal

John Kuhn lost a fumble for the first time in his professional career and gifted the New York Giants good field position late in the second quarter, but the Green Bay Packers defense was able to make a stand in the red zone and force a field goal. Aaron Rodgers will have a chance to get his team on the board again before halftime, but the Giants lead 13-10 with under two minutes to go in the second quarter after a Lawrence Tynes field goal.
