1. LINK: Giants Upset Packers to Reach N.F.C. Title Game
GREEN BAY, Wis. In the back of the end zone, Mario Manningham danced and shimmied. On the sideline, Tom Coughlin pumped his fist. In the middle of the field, Eli Manning raised his hands.

There were still just under seven minutes remaining Sunday, but the Giants knew. So did Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who looked nauseous near the Green Bay bench. The Packers fans at Lambeau Field, so many of them wearing down hunting jackets in the icy air, knew too: they had just seen the kill shot. Again.

Four years after the Giants beat the Packers here in the N.F.C. championship game on their way to a Super Bowl title, they did it again Sunday in a divisional game in far more convincing fashion. Mannings 4-yard touchdown pass to Manningham was his third scoring toss of the day as the Giants upset top-seeded Green Bay, 37-20. The Giants will travel to San Francisco next Sunday needing only one more victory to reach the Super Bowl yet again.

For the Giants, the victory is a continuation of a run that began Dec. 24, when they beat the Jets to set up a win-and-in matchup with the Dallas Cowboys in the final game of the regular season. They won that, pounding the Cowboys, then beat the Atlanta Falcons in the wild-card round before becoming the first road team in this postseason to win.
