Giants vs. Packers 2017 picks and predictions: Experts favor Green Bay for Wild Card Game - SBNation.com
The last time the Giants were in the playoffs was 2011, when they beat the Packers in the NFC Championship on the road, after losing to them in the regular season. This year, the Giants have played excellent defense. It’s less about Manning vs. Rodgers and more about how Rodgers handles New York’s increasingly good defense.

The Giants have allowed 10 points or fewer in three of their last four games, and are second in the league with just 17.8 points allowed per game. They rank first in the league in the red zone and second in the league on third down.

As far as experts are concerned, most seem to be in Green Bay’s corner. Over at CBS Sports, seven of their eight experts think the Packers will win, leaving just one selecting the Giants. At ESPN, the Packers were a clear majority.
