Greg Jennings: ‘We Haven’t Forgotten’ About Packers’ Playoff Loss To Giants In 2008

NFL

The Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl back in February and backed it up with a dazzling 15-1 season — but that doesn’t mean they’re not still hungry and ready to send a message. Receiver Greg Jennings, for one, has found new motivation for the Packers’ playoff opener next weekend.

The Packers went 13-3 in 2007 and earned the top overall playoff seed in the NFC, but they lost the NFC title game to the New York Giants in overtime, 23-20. Brett Favre went 19-of-35 with two interceptions; Jennings had just one catch. The Giants went on to topple the vaunted Patriots and win the Super Bowl.

With the Giants’ 24-2 victory over the Falcons today, the stage is set for a rematch of the playoff showdown from four years ago. The Packers will host the Giants at Lambeau Field next Sunday, and Jennings will be out for blood.
