The fifth-seeded Giants will take on the fourth-seeded Green Bay Packers in an NFC Wild Card Game in Lambeau Field on Sunday at 4:40 p.m. (eastern time). Although the Giants finished second in the NFC East, their 11-5 regular-season record is superior to the NFC North champion Packers' 10-6 mark. But Green Bay enters the postseason on a six-game winning streak. Both teams won on the road Sunday; the Giants defeated Washington, 19-10, while the Packers clinched their division title with a 31-24 victory in Detroit.

Although they are 3-4 in postseason games vs. Green Bay, the Giants have fared much better in their two most recent postseason games in Lambeau. In 2007, they overcame a wind chill of minus-23 to win the NFC Championship Game, 23-20, in overtime.

Five years ago, the Giants returned to Lambeau for a divisional playoff game and routed the 15-1 Packers, 37-20. Each time, the Giants went on to win the Super Bowl.

It's safe to say the Giants hope history repeats itself.
