The New York Giants’ victory over the Atlanta Falcons this afternoon means the Packers will host the Giants next Sunday afternoon in Green Bay.
Already, FOX Sports and the local New York media are playing up the 2007 NFC Championship angle – while omitting the troublesome (for that storyline, anyway) fact that the Packers have beaten the Giants the last two times they’ve faced them, and quite handily the last time the two teams met in Lambeau.
I have been asked non-stop since the end of the Lions game which team I am “scared” of, or which team I am “worried” about most in the playoffs.
I’ve been saying it for months but it seems no one believe me – I don’t care who the Packers play. They have to play well regardless of who their opponnent is and I fully expect them to against the Giants. Being “worried” or “scared” doesn’t enter into the equation.
Speaking of outside expectations regarding next weeks game, the early line from Vegas is the Packers by 9.
It would seem Vegas isn’t “scared” of the Giants either.
