If the best defense in the NFL can’t contain the Green Bay Packers, it’s hard to believe anyone else has much of a chance.
The Packers ran with ease right at the Rams behind a great offensive line performance. They went with a fast tempo, which seemed to put the Rams on their heels. There were countless formations and motions. And when the Packers needed Aaron Rodgers, he looked every bit the MVP of the NFL. It was a reputation-making performance by Packers coach Matt LaFleur.
Even when the Packers offense hit a bit of a lull in the second half and the Rams got back in the game, Rodgers hit Allen Lazard for a game-breaking 58-yard touchdown with 6:52 left. The Packers move on to the NFC championship game next week after the 32-18 win over the Rams.
It’s hard to even blame the Rams. It’s hard to stop an opponent when they’re doing everything right.
