Packers lost to the Cowboysin Week 6 this season.MORE: Predictions for NFL playoffs Sporting News provided live updates for the Packers' win over the Giants on Sunday. Here's how it went down.7:57p.m. ET final: Damarious Randall picked off Eli Manning in the end zone during the Giants' last-gasp effort, and though he tried to take it back for a touchdown down the sideline, he tripped and fell at the Giants' 29-yard line after a 78-yard return. Green Bay took a knee on the ensuing play to seal their 38-13 win.7:43 p.m. ET touchdown: The Packers left no doubt. An Aaron Ripkowski1-yard touchdown with 2:49 to play finished the Giants and capped a nine-play, 58-yard drive that bled 5:48 off the clock and devastated New York with several first downs. 38-13, Packers.7:33 p.m. ET: Clay Matthews forced a fumble as he sacked Eli Manning on the second play of the Giants' drive with a little le s than nine minutes to play, and thanks to a weird sequence, Matthews also recovered said fumble. Players initially stood around thinking Manning's fumble was an incomplete pa s and therefore a dead ball, but it was a live and well. Matthews got the Dontrelle Inman Jersey ball and gave Green Bay great field position (its own 45-yard line)to try to seal the game. It was the first turnover of the game.Clay Matthews knocks Paul Perkins out of the way to pick up the fumble.

A16-yard touchdownon third down capped what arguably was the Packers' most important drive of the game 10 Kellen CleMen's Jersey plays, 80 yards and, most important, 5:14 off the clock in the fourth quarter. It was Rodgers' fourth touchdown pa s of the game, which tied a Packers postseason single-game record. 31-13, Packers.When @AaronRodgers12 has unlimited time in the pocket... This is what happens.TOUCHDOWN, @PACKERS . #GoPackGo https://t.co/3KHHvc4AP6 NFL (@NFL) January 9, 2017 7:09 p.m. ET: End of the third quarter. A game that started slow scoring-wise turned into a bit of an offensive battle, and the Giants entered the fourth quarter with a slim lead in total yardage, 288-272, despite being down by 11 points.7:05 p.m. ET field goal: Green Bay's Mason Crosby nailed his 21st consecutive postseason field goal, an NFL record. It happened because the Packers' five-play drive stalled on the Giants' 14-yard line with le s than 30 seconds to play in the third quarter. 24-13, Packers.6:55 p.m. ET touchdown: Aaron Rodgers to Randall Cobb ... again. A sweet move in the slot gave Cobb enough room to catch Rodgers' pa s in the open field and sprint to the end zone for an easy score. It capped a quick, four-play, 63-yard drive that answered the Giants' touchdown. 21-13, Packers.. @AaronRodgers12 .+ @rcobb18 .= @Packers TD! #GoPackGo #NFLPlayoffs https://t.co/HoRhqK0P3v NFL (@NFL) January 9, 2017 6:48 p.m. ET touchdown: The Giants immediately make the Packers pay for their fourth-down mistake. Tavarres King caught a 41-yard touchdown pa s from Eli Manning on a post pattern, and New York just like that, on the second play after the turnover, turned the game around. 14-13, Packers.HIGHLIGHT: QB Manning to WR King for the 41-yard TD! #GiantsPride https://t.co/jJeqX6nh8X New York Giants (@Giants) January 8, 2017 That's the kind of sequence that could get a non-highly succe sful NFL coach fired. ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) January 8, 2017 6:47 p.m. ET: The Packers decided it would be a good idea to go for it on fourth-and-inches in their own territory with six minutes to play in the third quarter.It was not a good idea. The Giants' defensive line manhandled the Packers' offensive line and stuffed Ty Montgomery in the backfield for a lo s and a turnover on downs.6:10 p.m. ET touchdown/halftime: Aaron Rodgers is something, isn't he?The Packers quarterback launched a Hail Mary on the final play of the first half, and again, he connected, this time with Randall Cobb for a 42-yard score. Unbelievable is the only word to describe the play, which padded a halftime lead Green Bay arguably had no busine s holding. It completed an eight-play, 80-yard drive that took up the final 1:38 of the half. 14-6, Packers.bberninger1: What a catch Fox NFL Playoff: Giants at Packers https://t.co/xHQePWcpQz pic.twitter.com/p98I98wLq8 FanSportsClips (@FanSportsClips) January 8, 2017 Seen that before. Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) January 8, 2017 New York dominated most of the first half and entered the locker room with a 203-147 advantage in total yards. Rodgers was 11 of 22 for 155 yards and two touchdowns, but he took four sacks. Eli Manning was 13 of 21 for 170 yards.5:56 p.m. ET touchdown: The LaDainian Tomlinson Jersey Packers needed every bit of their amazing field position to get theirfirst score of the game, set upby a 31-yard pa s (Green Bay had managed 29 yards of total offense before the play) from Aaron Rodgers to Davante Adams on first down. The same duo connected for the five-yard touchdown, which only happened because of Rodgers' uncanny ability to buy time in the pocket ... if you want to call it a pocket. 7-6, Packers.Aaron Rodgers tha gawd pic.twitter.com/sSvl9dvhkh Jon Machota (@jonmachota) January 8, 2017 5:39 p.m. ET field goal: The Giants put together yet another impre sive drive this time seven plays, 70 yards but again had to settle for a field goal. Robbie Gould's 40-yard kick was good, and New York extended its slim lead with seven and a half minutes to play in the second quarter. 6-0, Giants.5:31 p.m. ET: Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson took a shot to the ribsareafrom Giants DB Leon Hallon an incomplete pa s with a little more than11 minutes to play in the second quarter. He was in obvious pain as trainers attended to him on the sideline. He was carted to the locker room and later ruled out for the rest of the game.Packers WR Jordy Nelson gets on a cart and is being taken to the locker room. He's holding his head in his hands.

Chao, MD (@ProFootballDoc) January 8, 2017 5:17 p.m. ET: The end of a relatively uneventful first quarter. The period ended with a sack of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, which might be considered a microcosm for Green Bay. New York at the time had a 105-7 advantage in total yards, and Rodgers had completed just 3 of 7 pa ses for 19 yards with two sacks. The Giants looked like the better team in almost all aspectsafter one quarter.5 p.m. ET field goal: The Giants, after pa sing on a potential field-goal opportunity and electing to punt on their first drive of the game, went for the three points after their second drive stalled at the Packers' 8-yard line. Robbie Gould's 26-yarder was good. The nine-play drive took 3:34 off the clock. 3-0, Giants.4:50 p.m. ET: Giants cornerDominique Rodgers-Cromartie injured what appeared to be his thigharea at the end of the Packers' first po se sion of the game. He received treatment after he hobbled off the field, but he returned later in the game.4:40 p.m. ET: Kickoff. The Giants received and started the first po se sion of the game at their own 28-yard line.3:46 p.m. ET: At least the Giants were wearing clothes this time.Meanwhile, at Lambeau Field... #NYGvsGB #NFLPlayoffs pic.twitter.com/aNgY8d0XEO NFL (@NFL) January 8, 2017 Max Tuerk Jersey 2:05 p.m. ET: It was very cold in Green Bay a couple hours before kickoff (13 degrees, felt like 2) as New York players "warmed" up on the field. They, um, didn't mind the cold.#mindset #GiantsPride pic.twitter.com/RiejyXk7pt New York Giants (@Giants) January 8, 2017
