Packers Smash Falcons
The Green Bay Packers have advanced to the NFC Championship, after rolling to a 48-21 route of the Atlanta Falcons, in an NFC Divisional match-up, on Saturday evening, in Atlanta, Georgia. The Associated Press, courtesy of espn.com, has the story, below.
James Jones #89 of the Green Bay Packers scores a 20-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter against Atari Bigby #20 of the Atlanta Falcons during their 2011 NFC divisional playoff game at Georgia Dome on January 15, 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Brett who? Aaron Rodgers has turned these NFL playoffs into his own showcase.
Carving up the NFC’s top-seeded team, Rodgers threw three touchdown passes, ran for another score and led the Green Bay Packers to their second straight postseason road victory with a stunning 48-21 rout of the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night.
The Packers (12-6) will have to win one more on the road to complete their improbable run from sixth seed to the Super Bowl, but nothing looks out of the question the way Rodgers is playing. He’ll lead Green Bay into the NFC championship game at either Chicago or Seattle next weekend.
