The Giants open the playoffs against the Packers on Sunday in Green Bay at 4:40 p.m.
Led by red-hot QB Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay has won six straight games.
The Packers led the league by reeling in 40 touchdown receptions during the regular season and were seventh in yards with 4,199.
Meanwhile, the Giants were tied for second in the league with 17 interceptions.
That brings us to our matchup to watch...
Packers WRs Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb vs. Giants CBs Janoris Jenkins, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and Eli Apple.
This matchup is everything in this game. They are one of the most dangerous receiving trios in the NFL and they are facing perhaps the best trio of corners in the NFL. Strength against strength.
Normally the Packers' advantage is that it's hard to contain all three of them, but the Giants might actually have the corners to do it.
Presumably Jenkins will be on Nelson, and presumably he's healthy enough to stick with him. But since all three of those receivers are capable of having huge games, there's plenty of pressure on DRC and Apple, too. It's even worse for them because of QB Aaron Rodgers, who is among the best in the league at escaping pass rushes and throwing on the run.
If Rodgers can get outside the pass rush and extend the play and force the Giants corners to have to hold their coverage longer than usual, this matchup could be a huge problem. And chances are the Packers receivers are going to have some numbers and their share of big plays.
The real challenge for the NYPD (the "New York Pass Defense") is to minimize the damage and keep the score low enough so the Giants' weak offense can have a chance to win the game.
