The Giants visit Green Bay for the first time since beating Brett Favre's Packers in the 2007 NFC Championship Game. So what does defensive end Justin Tuck remember about the visit, other than the right to go to the Super Bowl, where the Giants beat the previously undefeated Patriots? 

"I remember Green Bay fans being the nicest fans in America," he said. "They cheered for us when we won as we were running off the field. They stood up and clapped for their team. I remember my wife, who was sitting in the crowd, they treated her like she was one of them. They were nice fans."
