Which familiar foe will Packers face?

The Packers will face a familiar foe in the divisional round of the playoffs on Jan. 15. As we prepare for  wild-card weekend games, the Packers could wind up facing the Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons or New York Giants. In the span of a little over a year, all three potential opponents would have squared off against the Packers frequently. If the Lions beat the New Orleans Saints tonight, it would set up a return date at Lambeau Field next Sunday. It would mark the fifth time the Packers and Lions would have played in a span of roughly 15 months. The Packers have won three of the last four meetings. The average score in those games was 26-22 in favor of the Packers. Here are those results: Oct 3, 2010 — Packers 28, Lions 26, at Lambeau Field. Dec. 12, 2010 — Lions 7, Packers 3, at Ford Field. Nov. 24, 2011 — Packers 27, Lions 15, at Ford Field. Jan. 1, 2012 — Packers 45, Lions 41, at Lambeau Field.   If the Falcons beat the Giants on Sunday (and the Saints beat the Lions), that would set up the fourth meeting between the Packers and Falcons in less than 14 months. They might as well become part of the same division for as often as those teams have met. The Packers have won two of the last three games against the Falcons, all at the Georgia Dome. The average score in those games was 30-18 in favor of the Packers. Here are those results: Nov. 28, 2010 — Falcons 20, Packers 17, at Georgia Dome. Jan. 15, 2011 — Packers 48, Falcons 21, at Georgia Dome. Oct. 9, 2011 — Packers 25, Falcons 14, at Georgia Dome.   If the Giants beat the Falcons on Sunday (and the Saints beat the Lions), that would set up the third meeting between the Packers and Giants in less than 13 months. The Packers won the two previous meetings by an average score of 42-26.    . Here are the results: Dec. 26, 2010 — Packers 45, Giants 17, at Lambeau Field. Dec. 4, 2011 — Packers 38, Giants 35, at MetLife Stadium.
