Giants Vs. Packers Final Score: New York Upsets Green Bay, 37-20

It was the upset of the 2012 NFL Playoffs, as Eli Manning and the New York Giants took apart the team with the best record in the NFL and reigning Super Bowl MVP, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, en route to a 37-20 win that secured them a spot in the NFC Championship Game (against the San Francisco 49ers) for the second time since 2007.

Manning threw for 330 yards and three touchdowns to lead New York past Green Bay. Meanwhile, Hakeem Nicks caught seven passes for 165 yards and hauled in two of Manning's touchdown passes and Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 63 yards.

Rodgers, meanwhile, threw for only 264 yards and two scores and also led the Packers in rushing with 66 yards on seven carries. Donald Driver had three catches for 40 yards and Greg Jennings had four catches for 40 yards for Green Bay.

New York travels to face San Francisco in the NFC Championship game next Sunday.
