Packers, Giants have long playoff history

The Green Bay Packers and their NFC championship game opponents have a long history in the playoffs.

Green Bay won four NFL titles against New York in 1939, 1944, 1961 and 1962.

The Giants' only postseason win against the Packers came in the 1938 NFL championship.

This season, the two teams met in New York on September 16th and Brett Favre had his way that Sunday, setting the career mark for wins by a starter with a 35-13 victory.

Favre completed his first 14 second-half passes and threw three touchdown passes to rally the Packers.
