With the Packers preparing to face the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium, it's only natural to revisit the stunning playoff upset the Giants pulled off at Lambeau Field last January.
Or maybe it wasn't so stunning, even though the Packers went 15-1 in the regular season.
Pete Dougherty writes in his weekly analysis that ... "the Giants have had probably the NFLís best and deepest defensive line and a power-running game that defenses canít treat as an afterthought. Thatís been critical to their postseason success, which in the last five years includes two playoff wins in Wisconsin and two Super Bowl titles."

* Topping the notebook is an item about the Giants expecting the Packers to still be mad about the playoff game last season. Said Giants guard Chris Snee: ďWe know they are going to come in (ticked) off about last year, and we have to be ready for that intensity. Any time you get knocked out, I mean whenever we get knocked out, I am not happy. You remember that from previous years, so thatís why.Ē
