Green Bay Packers Team
January 16, 2012 by staff
Green Bay Packers Team, With their own star quarterback and a dominating defense, the New York Giants exposed the Green Bay Packers for what they now are – former Super Bowl champions.
The Packers dropped passes, fumbled the ball, and simply couldn’t stop Eli Manning and his receivers in the Giants’ shocking 37-20 NFC divisional playoff victory yesterday. To the Giants’ delight, a Green Bay team that had a real shot at an undefeated season less than a month ago is heading home.
And that the win came at Lambeau Field, well, that was just as sweet. The site has become a familiar launching pad for the New Yorkers. After beating the Packers (15-2) in Green Bay for the second time in four years, they only hope this trip ends the same way – in the Super Bowl.
The Giants will play the 49ers in San Francisco for the NFC championship Sunday.
“I think we’re a dangerous team,’’ Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “I like where we are and how we’re playing.’’
The Giants (11-7) have been on a roll ever since beating the rival Jets Dec. 24, beating the Cowboys to get in the playoffs, and then blowing out the Falcons in the wild-card round last week.
They took down the Packers yesterday, as Manning threw for 330 yards and three touchdowns.
“This team knows how to win on the road,’’ defensive end Justin Tuck said. “It seems like right now it’s our time.’’
The Giants stunned the Packers with a touchdown off a long heave from Manning to Hakeem Nicks just before halftime, then knocked them out with a late touchdown off a turnover.
Lambeau Field fell silent as the Giants swarmed the field in celebration, with a handful of New York fans chanting, “Let’s go, Giants!’’
“I knew we were going to beat them on Wednesday, to be honest with you,’’ running back Brandon Jacobs said.
The win came four years after the Giants beat a Brett Favre-led Packers team in the NFC title game. It wasn’t nearly as frigid this time around, and the Packers’ vulnerable defense seemed to be waiting to get sliced up.
