The showcase of the wild-card weekend; we could see either of these teams, despite their shortcomings, progressing to the conference title game and possibly the Super Bowl.
Aaron Rodgers probably has been the league's top quarterback since Thanksgiving. He's re-established that dynamic connection with Jordy Nelson, and Ty Montgomery's emergence as a receiver-turned-running back has been a revelation. Green Bay's defense also has come on, though the secondary is banged-up.
New York is showing elements of the torrid pass rush and opportunistic defense that lifted it to NFL championships for the 2007 and '11 seasons. But the running game is so-so and Eli Manning only seems comfortable throwing to Odell Beckham Jr. Not that it's a bad idea.
