This will be 24-year-old OBJ’s post-season debut and the Giants’ star wide receiver has waited his whole career for this moment. “I’m excited about the opportunity to even be able to play in the playoffs. For me, it’s like…I feel like I’ve talked about it for years since I’ve been here, and it’s finally here,” he told reporters ahead of the game. “I know I’m going to be very amped up and very excited.”
While the Packers defense will have their hands full containing big play-making Odell, the Giants are well aware of the fact that Aaron has been playing some of the best football of his career, throwing for over 300 yards in five of his last eight games. Couple that with his 18 touchdown passes and no interceptions in the past seven, he seems unstoppable.
“Aaron is playing out of his mind right now,” said Giants head coach Ben McAdoo, 39, said before the game, and he should know better than anyone, as he used to be number 12’s quarterbacks coach in Green Bay. “He’s on fire, taking care of the ball and is moving very well in and out of the pocket, making all the throws. I don’t have any kryptonite.”
The Packers have home field advantage and game time temps will be in the frigid teens, with the wind chill around around zero degrees,. In other words, just how they like it in the Jan. playoffs. The only time the two teams met in the regular season was on Oct. 9 when the Green Bay topped the giants 23-16. Let’s see if they can do it again!
