Giants at 49ers, Ravens at Patriots
That road warrior mentality the New York Giants have embraced is paving their path nicely.
They will need it for one more game when they head to San Francisco next Sunday to play for the NFC championship.
Since making the playoffs as a wild card in 2007, Tom Coughlin’s team has emphasized the need to be comfortable on the road. The Giants felt downright at home at Lambeau Field in the postseason for the second straight time, humbling the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers 37-20 Sunday.
Four years ago, they eliminated the Packers 23-20 in overtime on the Lambeau tundra.
“I think we’re a dangerous team,” Coughlin said. “I like where we are and how we’re playing.”
Why not? Eli Manning threw for three touchdowns for the second consecutive week, Hakeem Nicks caught two of his scoring throws _ one a 37-yard desperation pass at the end of the first half _ and the Giants (11-7) forced four turnovers from the usually precise Packers and had four sacks.
Baltimore finished off a 9-0 home record with a 20-13 victory Sunday over first-time playoff qualifier Houston.
“We have won in New England,” Flacco said. “They are one of the teams, like us, that’s tough to beat at home. We know how tough it is to go into a place like that, a place like here, and win a football game. So we’re going to have to make sure we prepare well all week and bring our `A’ game up there.”
New England routed Denver 45-10, silencing Tebowmania as Tom Brady tied an NFL mark with six touchdown passes and set another with five in the first half.
