Six Days to Go

Six days to go until we see if this guy can lead his team to an N.F.C. Divisional Playoff victory at home. It’s not just him, of course. What makes us nervous about Sunday? Keeping the Giants off Rodgers and out of the offensive backfield, and the Packers’ defense in general. It’s time for Dom Capers to unveil those secret plans he has kept under wraps all season so far. Otherwise, our 32-ranked defenders will have a tough day. Will playing in the cold on the road at Lambeau Field intimidate Eli Manning? Nope. He’s won there before in much colder conditions against a Packers team that was all but packed for the Super Bowl in January 2008.
