Yes, stranger things have happened. But few stranger than what would have to happen for the Packers to dig out of a 17-point hold with fewer than seven minutes remaining against the Giants.
New York leads 30-13, thanks to quarterback Eli Manning’s third touchdown pass of the day, a three-yarder to Mario Manningham. The likely decisive score came after Giants safety Kenny Phillips stripped Green Bay tailback Ryan Grant.
In short, the Packers are playing when it counts most like they did in Kansas City last month, during their only loss of the season. And the first home playoff game of the Aaron Rodgers era seems destined to end in disappointment.
Barring a dramatic, historic, and stunning comeback.
