Aaron Rodgers Nearly Perfect in NFC Divisional Route of #1 Seed


Can you say NFC Championship? That's where the Green Bay Packers are heading after embarrassing the  #1-seeded Atlanta Falcons by the score of 48-21.

QB Aaron Rodgers took his play to an elite status when he completed 31 of his 36 passes for 366 yards and 3 touchdowns. Rodgers ten touchdowns through his first three playoff games are an NFL record.

A fellow Pro Bowl snub in Tramon Williams also had a career game with two interceptions and a touchdown.

No matter who the Packers next opponent is, it will be an epic match-up. If it's the Bears,
it's round three of the oldest and most renowned rivalry in all of
professional football and if it's the Seahawks, it's a battle with the
biggest surprise of the year.

The Packers
probably don't care who it is with the way they are playing right now.
Their offense and defense is clicking on all cylinders in the midst of a
four game winning streak.

Rodgers
has been a man-possessed in playoff games while leading two of the
three highest-scoring performances by a road team in NFL postseason
history. Even though they lost  at Arizona last season, Rodgers and the Packers' offense still put up 45 in that contest.

Coincidentally, only Kurt Warner has posted a higher completion
percentage (87.9) in a 300-yard postseason game and it was in that same
Packers loss from last season. Rodgers completed 86.1 percent of his
passes.

"This probably was my best performance -- the stage we were on, the importance of this game. It was a good night," said Rodgers.

Considering this season's injuries, the defense may be one of the
best in franchise history. On Saturday night, they forced Atlanta into
four turnovers and made Matt Ryan look very overrated. Matty Ice wasn't
so clutch while throwing two interceptions and losing only his third
game ever at the Georgia Dome.

Ryan was also sacked five times including two from Clay Matthews who also recovered a fumble.
