Packers' high-powered offense, shaky defense could make for offensive fireworks with Giants
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) ' Going into Sunday's NFC divisional playoff game against the New York Giants, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are best known for all the fireworks they've produced on offense.
That's a good thing for the Super Bowl champions, because they've been remarkably vulnerable on defense.
All season, the Packers have been giving up yards in big chunks and bailing themselves out by forcing turnovers. And while the Giants might hope to slow the game down by establishing the run and keeping Rodgers on the sideline, the last meeting between the two teams ' a 38-35 victory by the Packers on a last-second field goal Dec. 4 ' could mean Sunday is shaping up as another fast-paced game that comes down to the last possession.
