Packers Advance With 38-13 Home Win Against the Giants

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (AP) -

The Green Bay Packers have advanced in the NFL playoffs with a 38-13 victory over the New York Giants.

   Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdown passes to move the Packers into the next round, where they will face the Dallas Cowboys. Randall Cobb caught three of those touchdown passes from Rodgers, and that included a 42-yard Hail Mary right before halftime.

   Eli Manning struggled for the Giants, although he did throw one touchdown pass. Clay Matthews sacked Manning for a forced fumble in the fourth quarter as the Giants were trying to rally.

There will be a familiar feel to the NFL playoffs next weekend: Every divisional-round game will be a rematch from the regular season, the first time that's happened in six years.

   In the NFC, it's the Green Bay Packers at the Dallas Cowboys, and the Seattle Seahawks at the Atlanta Falcons. In the AFC, it's the Houston Texans at the New England Patriots, and the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Kansas City Chiefs.

   The first times around, Dallas beat Green Bay 30-16 in Week 6, Seattle beat Atlanta 26-24 the same week, New England beat Houston 27-0 in Week 3, and Pittsburgh beat Kansas City 43-14 in Week 4.
