Green Bay, Wes – for all that Aaron Rodgers He’s accomplished in his Hall of Fame career, there’s one thing he’s never done: playing an NFC Championship game at Lambo Stadium.
Come next Sunday to see him check that off his menu. Rodgers and top seed Green Bay Packers (14-3) will play on the sidewalk in the Super Bowl against New Orleans Saints or Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The group will do so at home thanks to Saturday’s 32-18 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Lambo, in which the fans – 8,456 of them – were allowed in for the first time throughout the season.
This will be the Rodgers‘ fifth appearance in the conference title match. The four previous to him all came on the road. He won his first win – during the 2010 season, at Soldier Field – on his way to the Super Bowl. He has lost three since then, including last season at San Francisco 49 in Blast Style.
It was after last season’s defeat when Rodgers repeated a familiar quibble, saying, „We have to get one at home.“
Rodgers made sure of this early and often against the Rams (11-7), who had the best NFL defense in the regular season (18.1 points per game). The Packers defeated that in the first half, by a 19-10 lead in the first half. They became the first team this season to score against Ramez on each of his first three trips. It was also the fourth game in a row for the attackers, who scored the highest in each of his top three commands.
Rodgers threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Davant AdamsSend cornback rams Galen Ramsey In a hot exchange after playing it safe Nick Scott. Rodgers also ran for the touchdown in the first half, giving him a touch and landing pass in the same playoff game for the third time in his career. But it was his first quick result in the post-season period since the 2010 NFC title match in Chicago.
And that was just the beginning.
when Aaron Jones He broke off at 60 yards in the opening match of the third quarter to set up his own 1-yard touchdown path, meaning that the beams scored in each of the first five drives in a game for the first time since Week 3 of the 2016 season.
Saturday was the twenty-second time in NFL game history that Attack 1 and No.1 goal-scoring defense faced each other. The Packers‘ 32 points ranked fourth in those matches, according to ESPN Statistics and Information Research.
Rodgers kneeled off the field late to cheers of „best player“ from the crowd.
Complete 23 of 36 passes for 296 yards and two touchdown passes. His 58-yard landing pass to Allen Lazard In the fourth quarter it was his longest pass in his career after the season.
Rodgers capitalized on the best fast performance – 189 yards – his team gave him in a playoff. The previous high was 147 yards in a 2011 playoff match against the New York Giants. But that was a loss the only other time the Packers had been the number one under Rodgers.
That game denied him the NFC title at home.
Ten years later, Rodgers is not denied.
