NFC Championship: New York Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers

The Giants and the 49ers have each had great postseason efforts from Eli Manning and Alex Smith, respectively. Both defenses have fierce groups up front with some clutch plays by their secondary. The NFC Championship will be contested under rainy conditions though; how will that affect the pass rushers on both teams? This game can go either way, and both teams deserve to be in the position to advance to the Super Bowl. My pick is the Giants because of the greater level of experience they have.
