The Giants might have one of the hottest quarterbacks in Eli Manning, but as far as Justin Tuck is concerned, it's the Giants' defensive line that will determine the outcome of Sunday's NFC divisional playoff game against the Packers. 

"We feel confident against any offensive line considering the weapons we have on our defensive line," he said. "That offensive line will be poised and ready, and they'll get an extra week to be ready. It’s going to come down to who wants it most. A lot of strengths going against a lot of strengths. At the end of the day, I think the game will be won up front, whether it’s by them or by us, so there’s a lot of pressure on both sides."

Tuck said he's anxious to get another chance at the Packers are losing last month at MetLife Stadium 38-35. The Giants have won four of their last five since that game.

"We felt like we let one slip through our hands, and I’m sure Green Bay felt like they didn’t play their best game," he said. "All tht’s in the past. We’ll get our opportunity to settle all those question marks on Sunday."
