All-Pros Davante Adams and Jalen Ramsey were locked in mortal combat all game long, but who won the war?

With the Green Bay Packers hosting the Los Angeles Rams in the Divisional Round on Saturday, all eyes were on Adams versus Ramsey.

Two All-Pro players looking to propel their teams into the NFC Championship Game, but who won the war in this pivotal matchup?

First half

The No. 1 offense against the No. 1 defense had been the major headline heading into this game with Ramsey looking to continue his lockdown success against Adams. However, in the first half, Adams got the better of Ramsey.

Adams started his battle with Ramsey with a 10-yard catch for an early first down but didn’t really get it going until the second quarter.

Facing a goal-to-go series, Aaron Rodgers motioned Adams to come across the field — a motion Ramsey followed but was easily beat after Rodgers fired it to Adams for an easy six.

After the touchdown, a visibly upset Ramsey could be seen jumping up and down out of frustration of giving up an early touchdown.

Adams would finish the half with 30 yards — including a nifty 21-yard catch-and-run beating Ramsey.

Second half

The war of titans between Adams and Ramsey started to fizzle out as the Green Bay offense was led by Aaron Jones and Allen Lazard. The two accounted for two second-half touchdowns.

Let’s give credit where is credit is due: this No. 1 ranked defense for Los Angeles showed some signs of promise of keeping them in the game — until they weren’t.

Ramsey and Co. managed to hold Adams to 66 yards and a score, but the war heavily favored Adams.

Adams consistently beat Ramsey off the line of scrimmage when Rodgers targeted him. A number of quarterbacks may have chosen to stay away from Ramsey’s side due to his high-level play. But not Rodgers. And Adams was more than up the task.

ESPN’s Rob Demovsky asked Adams after the game who could stop [the Packers] if the Rams’ No. 1 defense couldn’t in which Adams responded with, “nobody.”

“It was a good matchup, I wish we would’ve been able to have more of it,” Adams said on his matchup with Ramsey.

Regardless of the final stat line, Adams vs. Ramsey delivered as the world got to watch two amazing athletes work their craft with Adams getting the better of him.

Adams and Co. will look to keep their momentum going as the Packers host the winner of New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers next week.
