In yet another strong offensive display, Aaron Rodgers helped the Green Bay Packers secure a spot in this year’s NFC Championship game.

The veteran quarterback was at his destructive best in Saturday’s Divisional Round Playoff win over the Los Angeles Rams. Rodgers was unstoppable on all fronts as he went 23 of 36, throwing for 296 yards with 2 passing touchdowns.

He also had a rare rushing touchdown in the second quarter, which would have made Lamar Jackson proud. All in all, the Packers did enough as they sealed a deserving 32-18 win against the Rams at Lambeau Field tonight.

But there was another stat from their game tonight that will interest the Packers’ fanbase in Wisconsin.

The Packers scored in each of their first 5 drives against the Rams on Saturday. ESPN correspondent Rob Demovsky was quick to point out that this is only the 3rd instance where a team has achieved this feat in NFL playoff history.

The previous two teams to do so were the Indianapolis Colts (vs Denver Broncos in 2003) and Kansas City Chiefs (vs the Colts in 2013). Both these games were in the NFL Wild Card Round. The latter saw the Chiefs surrender a massive 38-10 lead to the Colts.

Rodgers and Co. will be satisfied by today’s outcome as they now turn their attention to the NFC Championship game. This is coach LaFleur’s second consecutive Championship tie. He will look to redeem himself after last year’s dismal display against the San Francisco 49ers.

We will find out who the Packers will face after the conclusion of Sunday’s Divisional Round Playoff between New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Either way, this promises to be a feisty affair, so make sure you tune in.
