The New York Giants forced four turnovers and sacked Aaron Rodgers four times en route to a 37-20 win in the NFL Playoffs against the Green Bay Packers.  Eli Manning was 21/33 for 330 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.  Eli’s favorite target was Hakeem Nicks.  The North Carolina product caught seven passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns.  Nicks caught a 37-yard Hail Mary on the last play of the 1st half.  Hakeem’s touchdown reception game the Giants a 20-10 lead heading into halftime.

The Giants did an exceptional job of blanketing Green Bay’s receivers.  Aaron Rodgers went 26/46 for 264 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.  Those numbers aren’t horrible, but this is Aaron Rodgers we’re talking about here.  Rodgers set an all-time NFL record for the highest passer rating in a single season.  His passer rating for the 2011 season was a ridiculous 122.5.  His passer rating on Sunday against the Giants was a Tarvaris-Jackson-esque 78.5.

The Giants move on to the NFC Championship Game.  Big Blue will face the San Francisco 49ers at 6:30pm ET next Sunday in San Francisco for the right to represent the NFC in Super Bowl XLVI.  The 49ers were able to beat the New Orleans Saints 36-32 on Saturday.
