The matchup, being touted by many as the league’s best offense versus the best defense, is shaping up nicely at Lambeau Field.  Rodgers and Adams seem to have found their footing, while the Rams still seem to be struggling.

In a particularly long drive for the Packers, Aaron Rodgers found Davante wide open at the far right end of the end zone. With a subsequent field goal conversion, the Packers went up 10-3.

The crucial Divisional Round game between the two sides taking place at Lambeau Field has been dominated by the Packers running backs.

The rushing corps of Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams, and AJ Dillon have done a stellar job at running the ball from the backfield. 

Aaron Rodgers’ bullet pass to the end zone to find Davante exposed the fallacies of the LA Rams defense. And so far Adams too seems to have gotten the better of Jalen Ramsey.

A sensational year for Davante Adams

Davante Adams is a force to reckon with in the end zone. With 18 regular season touchdown receptions this season, he is head and shoulders above the competition. In terms of total receptions as well, the Packers’ wide receiver is joint second in the league with 115.

Averaging 98.1 yards a game, 100+ yard games are just another a day in the office for Davante Adams. Another stat that proves Adams’ dominance is his catch completion rate. Up from 65.4% in 2019 to 77.2 in 2020, Adams’ palms have been a football magnet.
