packers get on the board first
The Los Angeles Rams began Saturday's game going three-and-out, but the Green Bay Packers got on the board first. The Rams' defense held them to three points, as linebacker Troy Reeder broke up a touchdown pass from quarterback Aaron Rodgers to receiver Allen Lazard.
Davante Adams has the first td of the day
And it's a pretty one. Rodgers fired off a quick one to receiver Davante Adams, a play perfectly designed to keep Rams star cornerback Jalen Ramsey away from the ball.
This touchdown gives the Packers a 10-3 lead.
Rodgers has yet another one for the highlight reel, and an MVP play if I've ever seen one. This pump fake turned rushing touchdown put the Packers up yet another score, for a 16-3 lead.
packers up on rams at halftime
The Packers have dominated the first half so far and are up on Los Angeles 19-10 at the half. The Rams answered with a score of their own late in the second quarter but are gonna have to do more than that going forward. Green Bay gets the ball at the start of the second half.
turns out everyone is named 'aaron' in green bay is good
The Packers got the ball in the second half, and running back Aaron Jones made sure to make the most of it with a 60-yard run.
Jones ran it in for a touchdown a few plays later to give the Packers a 25-10 lead.
the Rams have some fight in them
The Rams were able to march down the field, completely obliterating Green Bay's defense in the process. The result? A Cam Akers touchdown, where he lined up in the wildcat formation. Los Angeles tried this two other times so far during this game, and this situation was the perfect time for it to work.
The Rams went for two after this and cut the Packers' lead to 25-18.
packers keep their foot on the gas
Rodgers-to-Lazard kept things rolling in the fourth quarter with this 58-yard touchdown, making it look easy once again.
This beauty put the Packers up 32-18 and put the icing on the cake.
packers move on, rams go home
The Packers are moving on to the NFC Championship game, defeating Los Angeles 32-18. The next round will feature 37-year old Rodgers, and either Tom Brady or Drew Brees, and I don't think we need to talk about how old they are. It's been drilled into our heads all week.
