It might not be with as many fans as we’d like to see, but Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will finally host an NFC Championship Game for the first time in the veteran quarterback’s career following Saturday afternoon’s 32-18 victory over the Los Angeles Rams at Lambeau Field. After a 3-3 first quarter, Green Bay took control in the second, outscoring the visitors 16-7 to take a 19-10 lead into the break.
In that second period, Rodgers had rushed for a touchdown, a one-yarder and thrown for another one. He’d add a third TD in the fourth quarter that put them up by 14 and essentially sealed the game. That was a 58-yard pass to Allen Lazard. Running back Aaron Jones was also instrumental in the win. He rushed for 99 yards, including a one-yard TD run in the third, on just 14 carries, giving them a double threat offensively. Rodgers finished up with 296 yards passing to go along with the aforementioned TD’s, helping them to the title game in which they will await the winners of Tampa and New Orleans next weekend.
