It was supposed to be a clash of the titans. The number one offense versus the number one defense. In the end, the offense of the Green Bay Packers proved to be too much for the visiting Los Angeles Rams.

The Packers offense ran through the heart of the Rams defense, while Aaron Rodgers continued his MVP-level play, slicing up Jalen Ramsey and LA’s secondary.

Los Angeles was thought to be the perfect matchup to the Packers. Presumptive NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald has the capability to disrupt any and every offense while Jalen Ramsey could shut down Davante Adams and the Packers’ passing attack.

But, as they have done all year long, Green Bay used its ground game to get the play-action passing game rolling and the Packers dominated the Rams putting over 480 (484 to be exact) yards of offense, running through the heart of the Rams’ line and taking advantage of an aggressive secondary.

With the 32-18 score, Green Bay is moving on to the NFC Championship Game and for the first time in Aaron Rodgers’ 16-year career, it will be at home on the Frozen Tundra.

The Rams and their number one defense was nothing more than a speed bump for the Packers. The offense put up 30 points on them and it could have been more if not for a few dropped passes.

For the first time all season, the Packers let in ticket purchasing fans, around 8,500, and put on a show. Though the crowd was small, you could tell the Packers were feeding off their energy and they gave them a memorable show.

The Packers now move on to the next round. A date with a six-time Super Bowl champion awaits. But, before we get there, let’s take a look at the top five performances form the the divisional round.
