The Giants make their first postseason appearance since the 2011 season as they face the Green Bay Packers this weekend in an NFC Wild Card playoff game. Kickoff will be 4:40 p.m. Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field. 

Revenge will be on New York's mid, as the Giants lost at Green Bay 23-16 back on October 5..

The big focus will be the Giants defense going up against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense. Green Bay, who had struggled initially during the early part of the season, is on a six game winning streak and enter the postseason as the NFC North champions.

Eli Manning, who had a pretty so-so regular season, is going to have to come up big in order for the Giants to go far in the playoffs. This is also where receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz, and Sterling Shepard are going to have to step it up against an injury laden Packers backfield.

Running might not be much of an option either for Big Blue, as Green Bay is one of the better teams in the NFL against the run, and the Giants have struggled carrying the ball this year.

And then there's the whole Aaron Rodgers matter. Rodgers is red hot, as he's thrown 18 touchdown passes, and no interceptions in his past seven games. He'll be going up against a stellar Giants defense lead by Janoris Jenkins, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, rookie Eli Apple, Damon Harrison, and Landon Collins.

The Giants are the Number 5 seed at 11-5. Green Bay, the NFC North champs, are the Number 4 seed at 10-6.

Temperatures in Green Bay Sunday will be frigid Sunday, with highs only in the low teens. Factor in the wind chill, and it's going to feel like 5 degrees as it gets dark. Well, Lambeau is the known as the Ice Bowl for a reason.
