In 2007, the New York Giants lost at home to the Green Bay Packers in the regular season, then won at Lambeau Field for the NFC Championship.
 
In 2011, the Giants lost at home to the Packers in the regular season, then won at Lambeau for another NFC Championship.
It will be a similar story line entering Sunday's NFC Wild Card game. The Giants lost to the Packers in the regular season -- 23-16 at Lambeau in Week 5 -- and will try to turn the tables in Green Bay in a playoff rematch on Sunday.
 
Manning has as many playoff wins at Lambeau Field as his counterpart, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Manning is 2-0 while Rodgers is 2-2.
 
In what should be a tremendous matchup of strength vs. strength, it will be the Rodgers-led Packers offense against a superb Giants defense.
 
Behind a late-season scoring binge with four consecutive games of 30-plus points, the Packers finished the league ranked fourth in scoring with 27.0 points per game. The Giants, who allowed 10 points or fewer in three of their last four games, finished second in the league with 17.8 points allowed per game.
