8: Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has eight plays of 25 yards or longer against the Packers, including three in their 2011 divisional playoff game. His six touchdowns and 423 receiving yards in just four games are the most by any Giant against Green Bay, including postseason.

7: The number of postseason meetings between the two franchises. The Giants trail 4-3 but have won the last two en route to Super Bowl XLII and XLVI titles.

6: The Giants' margin of victory over the Packers in the 1938 NFL Championship Game, the sixth title game played in the history of the NFL. The Giants won 23-17 at the Polo Grounds to capture the third of their eight league championships in franchise history, trailing only Chicago (nine) and Green Bay (13) in total titles.

5: The Giants trail the regular-season series between the two historic franchises by five games. The Packers are 27-22-2 against the Giants, dating back to their first meeting in 1928, which New York won 6-0.

4: The number of times the Giants have shut out the Packers, most recently in 1944. The others were meetings in 1928, 1932, and 1937. Coincidentally, including playoffs, the Packers have also kept the Giants off the scoreboard four times (1928, 1932, 1939, and 1961).

3: Eli Manning has recorded three straight games with a 100-plus passer rating against the Packers and is 3-3 against the NFC rivals, including the postseason. In his last three games vs. Green Bay, he is averaging more than 300 yards with nine touchdowns and two interceptions.

2: The number of seasons Tom Coughlin spent as the wide receivers coach of the Packers, serving in 1986 and 1987 before taking the same position in his first stint with the Giants.

1: In 58 total meetings over 85 years, there has been only one overtime game between the Giants and Packers. That was the NFC Championship Game at Lambeau Field, where Lawrence Tynes kicked the game-winning field goal in the extra period to clinch a 23-20 victory and send New York to Super Bowl XLII.
