Even though the Giants went three and out, they were in field goal range. Lawrence Tynes, who missed two field goals earlier, was the man who got the 47 yard field goal to win the game. This NFC Championship game sent the Giants to the Super Bowl where they pulled off a huge upset and beat the 16–0 Patriots by the score of 17–14.[14]
  • In 2011, the Packers and Giants battled it out in December as they played in an important regular season game.

This started giving Green Bay offensive momentum. Similarly to the 2011 Divisional round between these teams, there was one play left in the first half, and it was a Hail Mary. Aaron Rodgers, who completed two Hail Maries in 2015, completed another one from 42 yards away to Randall Cobb to give Green Bay a 14–6 lead before halftime. The Packers offense continued their dominance, scoring 24 points in the second half.

The Packers went on to beat the Cowboys 34–31 in the Divisional, before losing to the Falcons 44–21 in the NFC Championship.[17]
