NFL Playoff Schedule 2012: Packers Falls Victim To The Giants Again

The Green Bay Packers were upset at home the last time they played the New York giants in the playoffs, and Sunday the Giants delivered and even more convincing defeat. The Giants routed the Packers, who entered the playoffs at 15-1, 37-20 on Sunday afternoon, thoroughly dominating a team that dominated throughout much of the 2011 NFL Season.Despite having the league's best record, the Packers became the only team to lose a home playoff game so far this year. That sets up a New York-San Francisco NFC championship game at 6:30 p.m. next Sunday that seemed very unlikely at the beginning of the season.

In the AFC, the Ravens held serve at home to beat Houston 20-13 Sunday afternoon and will face the New England Patriots at 3 p.m. next Sunday on CBS. Baltimore forced four turnovers, including a late interception by Ed Reed that all but sealed the deal for Baltimore.
