The Giants and Packers along with the Detroit Lions are the three potential opponents the Cowboys will play. After winning six straight games, the Pack are back and that has some people anxious as anything is possible once you make it to the dance.
The following season the Giants had home field advantage locked up for their season finale with the Vikings. The only thing they have to really worry about in the playoffs are the Giants.
The New York Giants will play the Green Bay Packers in an NFL Wild Card game on Sunday, start time at 4:40 PM ET, at Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Giants sacked Rodgers four times in that game and forced four turnovers, which is what they'll be looking to do again when they play the Packers on Sunday.
The little-known undrafted back in his second year out of South Dakota State, filling in with Theo Riddick sidelined for a third straight game with a wrist injury, had a career-high 64 yards and two touchdowns at halftime. It won't get any easier on the road this weekend. The Chiefs clinched a first-round bye in the playoffs for the first time since 2003, when they lost that round to the Indianapolis Colts 38-31.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (21) laughs on the sidelines against the Miami Dolphins at AT&T Stadium. Who wouldn't? After all, Dallas is in the top five in points allowed and has given up the fewest rushing yards this season.
How the Giants opt to defend him and the rest of the Packers offense remains to be seen, but Cook can't wait to find out - and find out what the playoffs feel like. Wide receiver Jordy Nelson seems to have returned to form after tearing his ACL last preseason.
Alshon Jeffery Makes Bold Guarantee Following Bears Loss
Locker clean out day came earlier again at Halas Hall after the Bears failed to make the postseason for the sixth year in a row. They turned the ball over five times and were defeated by 28 points - their largest margin of defeat this season.
Aaron Rodgers had an MVP-like season.
Rodgers led the National Football League in touchdown passes with 40.
Rodgers forecast the winning streak and played a direct role in it, throwing 11 touchdowns and no interceptions heading into Sunday night.
The NFC playoff picture is set for the 2016 NFL Playoffs. Manning vs. Rodgers with a spot in the divisional round at stake provides so much excitement for football fans all over the country. "He's confident in the players around him that they're going to make plays for him, and he's playing with a killer instinct". They missed his coverage against the pass but also his physicality against the run.
Another key for the Giants will be to keep Aaron Rodgers from extending his plays. Those little passes he catches out of the backfield and then turns in to first downs off broken tackles are just as unsafe as an elite running game and will be in the postseason if Detroit can figure out how to use him. Granted the only defense McGloin has played against are Indy's and Denver's, he will definitely have a rough game against the Texans in Houston.
