NFL Playoff Schedule 2012: Giants-49ers Will Meet In NFC Championship

The New York Giants waltzed into Lambeau Field and took it right to the Green Bay Packers, knocking off the defending Super Bowl champions to book a ticket to the NFC Championship. The big winner in all of this might be the San Francisco 49ers, who will now host the Giants next weekend for a trip to the Super Bowl. For the Niners, Sunday's developments clearly beat the alternative of having to head to Lambeau for the NFC Championship.
