NFC Scout's Take
New York isn't just the Cinderella team in this year's final four, the Giants are the most well-coached team in the playoffs right now, Patriots included.
I like how they haven't asked
Regardless of the field condition, the biggest matchup of the game for New York will be its banged up secondary against those Packers receivers. New York's secondary has played great the past couple weeks.
I'm not sure the Giants pass rush is going to be able to do much at Lambeau if it's a slow track like it was against Seattle. Last week at Dallas, the Giants didn't have a great day rushing the passer, but what they did do well was bring their linebackers and force
Falling behind early against Seattle and then coming back to win big should really help Green Bay this week if the Giants get out to a lead.

One guy who came up with a huge game last week for Green Bay was safety
It's going to be a tough task for the Giants. It seems to be set up to be a perfect Green Bay type of day. You've got the Packers playing in Lambeau in January, with the cold, and Brett Favre maybe playing in the snow again. All the things you think of when you think of the Packers.
