It’s not easy to play at Lambeau Field in January because it’s not an environment that’s conducive for offensive football. The weather and conditions make it almost impossible to execute. Yet Aaron Rodgers made it look easy against Seattle in the NFC divisional round. The Packers would go on to win this game 28-23 and the thing that stands out is how well Rodgers started off. The Seahawks have a very tough defense but Rodgers came into this game as cool as ice. He threw an early touchdown to Davante Adams which helped capture the momentum in a contest that was very tight.
So to do that within the first 10 minutes of play was very crucial in this victory. Keep in mind Rodgers was also better than Russell Wilson in the head-to-head quarterback duel . When you get into these playoff games each team is so competitive and your stars have to show up. Rodgers answered the call and it’s the reason the Packers are moving on to the NFC Championship. They’ll face the San Francisco 49ers in what’s certainly going to be a clash of the titans. If the hot streak continues for Rodgers you just never know how that game will play out?
