GAME RECAP: GIANTS ONE WIN AWAY FROM SUPER BOWL WITH VICTORY IN LAMBEAU

The Giants have turned Lambeau Field into their private postseason playland.

For the second time in four years, the Giants traveled to Wisconsin in January and stunned a higher-seeded Green Bay Packers team. On Sunday, the fourth-seeded Giants rode another terrific defensive effort and three Eli Manning touchdown passes to defeat the top-seeded, 15-1, defending Super Bowl Champion Packers, 37-20, an NFC Divisional Playoff Game.

The victory advances the Giants into the NFC Championship Game next Sunday in San Francisco against the second-seeded 49ers. The Giants lost in San Francisco, 27-20, on Nov. 13.

It will be the Giants' first championship game appearance since 2007, when they defeated the Packers here in overtime, 23-20.

**POSTGAME QUOTES

*Coach Coughlin: *"I'm very happy for our players, our coaches, and our ownership to come in here against a very, very good football team, a team that had played so well all year long. We were excited to come here and play. We knew what we were up against and I thought we did an outstanding job.

"Our defense has played well the last few weeks and that has been a huge difference for us in being able to count on that. Today we played outstanding defense and got turnovers." FULL TRANSCRIPT
