Packers to face Giants in NFC divisional round

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 8, 2012 – 2:58 pm

With their victory over the Atlanta Falcons, the New York Giants earned a trip to Lambeau Field for the NFC divisional playoffs against the Packers at 3:30 p.m. CT next Sunday.

Seeded fourth in the NFC, the Giants (10-7) beat the Falcons 24-2 in a wild-card game on Sunday. The Packers (15-1) are seeded first in the NFC and had a first-round bye.

No. 2 seed San Francisco (13-3) will host No. 3 seed New Orleans (14-3) in the other NFC divisional game, scheduled for 3:30 p.m. CT Saturday. The winners of the two divisional games will meet in the NFC Championship on Sunday, Jan. 22, at the site of the highest remaining seed. The Packers, as the No. 1 seed, would host the conference title game should they get there.

Next Sunday’s Packers-Giants game will be the second meeting between the teams this season. Back on Dec. 4, the Packers won, 38-35, on a last-second field goal at MetLife Stadium.

The Packers and Giants last met in the playoffs following the 2007 season in the NFC title game. The Giants won that game, 23-20 in overtime at Lambeau Field, to advance to the Super Bowl.

The upcoming game will mark the seventh postseason meeting all-time between the Packers and Giants. The Packers are 4-2 in the previous six meetings, beating the Giants for the NFL Championship in 1939, ’44, ’61 and ’62. The Giants beat the Packers for the NFL title in 1938 and in the NFC Championship four years ago.
