GB is a different story however..
This Giants secondary is their best ever. They don't have the pass rush they had in previous super bowl runs, but because of their coverage they can blitz and that gives Spags the confidence to do it often.

Their offense has been bad compared to before, so you're probably right. It would be hard to win in Lambeau with a 17-16 score

Perhaps but with Atlanta you need great linebackers and a pass rush.

Denver and Seattle have great secondaries and we had no problem with them. And both of those were on the road in tough environments.

Without a vey strong front 7 we'll just eat you alive in the run game and short/intermediate passing game.

Eli is a big game player and that would be the only thing that would worry me but on paper we're better.

On paper of course But Matt Ryan and the Falcons prob have the most pressure for anyone in the playoffs. I would take my chances against basically anyone in the NFC if the Giants were to miraculously get past the Packers. I think the Seahawks are a bad matchup for the Giants but they've also looked beatable lately.

We will see, I love the NFL playoffs. Especially if the Giants are in it. They are such an X-factor because they like to fk shit up for all the great teams

I see all home teams winning tbh, but I say if there's going to be any surpises it would be in the MIA-PITT, they can pull the upset

They're 7-1 at home and lost that one game by a field goal.

Different team at home.

Lions are 3-5 on the road.

It's not looking good for Lions.

The last snow game the Lions played in was against the Eagles in 2013


You might remember this game as the one where the Lions made zero half time adjustments, whereas the Eagles put on 3 inch cleats and Lesean Mccoy ran for 217 yards, most of them in the second half, including 2 40+ yard TD runs in the 4th quarter.



so for the sake of my liver - please let there not be snow
