The Green Bay Packers have been resting up for two weeks awaiting their next opponent, and they’ll be primed and ready to host the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday afternoon. Green Bay only lost once at home this year, which will make it difficult for the Rams to come in and steal the victory from the NFC’s top overall seed.
Despite losing their starting QB heading into their Wild Card matchup against the Seattle Seahawks, the Rams rebounded nicely after John Wolford went down with an injury. Incumbent starter Jared Goff filled in serviceably, and tossed a touchdown pass to WR Robert Woods in the fourth quarter to seal the road win against their division rivals.

Green Bay Packers have had some time to prepare for the Divisional Round, but finished off the regular season in strong fashion two weeks ago against the Chicago Bears. QB Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdown passes to four different receivers, including one to WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who leads the team in receiving yards in Week 17.

Ravens vs Bills Live Stream Online TV How to watch Ravens vs. Bills Divisional Round originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington For Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens,
a win over the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card Round exorcised some demons and put to bed old narratives. Yet, the job isn’t done yet. Now, attention turns to the Buffalo Bills and a chance at the AFC Championship come Saturday.
Things only get more challenging from here on out. Against the Bills, Baltimore will face one of the most talented quarterback-wide receiver duos in the league in Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs. And while the likes of Stephen A.
Smith believes Baltimore’s defense has the capability to shut them down, it will still be a tall task for the unit. On the other side of the ball, the run game could once again be crucial for Baltimore. With frigid temperatures and even some snow in the forecast, Jackson and J.K. Dobbins could be the main source of offense. One team will take the next step to the Super Bowl, while the other will say goodbye to their season. Here’s how to watch the crucial contest.

The Rams earned an impressive 30–20 win over the Seahawks in the Wild Card Round last week as their defense dominated what had been a high-octane Seattle offense. LA’s defense will be put to the test again this week as they face Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, who had the highest-scoring offense in the NFL during the regular season. The Rams allowed the fewest points per game during the regular season, so this is certainly a case of strength on strength. It isn’t expected to be snowing in Green Bay on Saturday, but with the weather forecast in the 30s and 10+ mph wind, it’s going to be the perfect conditions for a home game at Lambeau. Will the Packers overcome what is perhaps the best defense in football and keep their hopeful Super Bowl run alive? Or will Aaron Donald and the Rams earn a playoff upset for the second straight week? For odds movement and full matchup history, visit the Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers Matchup Page.

Los Angeles Rams Analysislos angeles rams
The Rams rolled out quarterback John Wolford last week for just his second career start, but he left the game after just six pass attempts when a late hit by Jamal Adams caused a horrifyingly hard hit to the head and neck area. Wolford was released from the hospital this week, but I would expect Jared Goff to be the starter for Los Angeles this week. Despite his broken thumb, Goff provided solid play in relief of Wolford last week as he completed 9 of 19 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown. With LA’s defense and run game excelling, Goff didn’t have to do a whole lot, but he could be asked to provide even more passing production this week against Green Bay.
Rookie running back Cam Akers was the star of the show for LA last week with 28 carries for 131 yards and a touchdown. General manager Les Snead’s draft selection of Akers at #52 overall was a heavily-criticized one, but the former Florida State runner is proving worthy of that lofty pick. Akers was on the field for 75% of snaps against the Seahawks and even contributed with a 44-yard reception that showed off his remarkable balance, change-of-direction ability, and short-area quickness. The Seahawks were a well-above-average run defense during the regular season, while Green Bay was more beatable on the ground, and you can be confident Akers will be a huge part of the Rams’ plans again this week.
Despite catching passes from two quarterbacks, one with a broken thumb, on Saturday, the Rams’ wide receivers had solid games. Cooper Kupp led the group with 4 catches for 78 yards, and while he’s dealing with a knee injury, it would be surprising to see him sit out this week. Assuming he does play, he will likely see a lot of Chandon Sullivan in the slot, a player he’s more than capable of beating. Robert Woods caught 4 passes for 48 yards and a touchdown against Seattle last week, but he’ll draw the more difficult matchup on the perimeter against Jaire Alexander, a 2nd-team All-Pro cornerback this season. Alexander won’t shadow Woods, and he’ll likely spend some time covering Josh Reynolds as well. When Woods is matched up with Kevin King, he’ll have the advantage.
The Rams’ offensive line is well-positioned heading into this game, especially with the return of stalwart veteran left tackle Andrew Whitworth from Injured Reserve last week. He’ll play a key third-down role against part-time pass rusher Rashan Gary who had 5 sacks during the regular season in limited snaps. David Edwards is questionable for this game with an Achilles injury. Still, he’s been on the injury report for a handful of weeks and should be able to join Austin Blythe and Austin Corbett in the middle of the offensive line. On the right side, Rob Havenstein will have the toughest test of the group against Za’Darius Smith, who was a Pro Bowl edge defender with 12.5 sacks and 23 QB hits during the regular season.
Los Angeles’s biggest strength is its defense as first-year defensive coordinator Brandon Staley led a unit that allowed the fewest points and the fewest yards in the NFL. Aaron Donald was the lead soloist in the orchestra as he put together a season worthy of his third Defensive Player of the Year nod. He finished with a team-high 13.5 sacks, 14 tackles for a loss, 4 forced fumbles, and 27 quarterback hits. Leonard Floyd also had a tremendous season with 10.5 sacks, 55 tackles, and 19 QB hits. Morgan Fox (6 sacks), Michael Brockers (5 sacks), and Samson Ebukam (4.5 sacks) have also played a significant part in the pass rush. The Rams also feature Jalen Ramsey and Darious Williams, arguably the best cornerback duo in the NFL. Williams had a pick-six last week, and he and Ramsey held D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett to just a 46.6% catch percentage last week.
Green Bay Packers AnalysisGreen Bay Packers
As I mentioned in the introduction, Aaron Rodgers has put together arguably the best season of his career and is likely going to take home his third MVP award. He completed a career-high 70.7% of his passes during the regular season and threw 48 touchdowns to 5 interceptions, good for the best TD:INT ratio of his career. He also led the NFL in passer rating (121.5) and QBR (84.3) during the regular season and was obviously instrumental in the Packers scoring 31.8 points per game, the most in the NFL. Rodgers is at the top of his game, and he’s going to have to continue to be to take down this fearsome Rams’ defense.
Rodgers won’t be without help in his attempt to beat the Rams, though. Davante Adams joined him as a First-Team All-Pro nominee with 115 catches for 1,374 yards and 18 touchdowns in 14 games. The Rodgers-Adams connection is arguably the best of any quarterback and wide receiver in the NFL, but Adams will be facing his toughest test of the season, arguably against the Rams’ Jalen Ramsey and Darious Williams. Outside of Adams, none of the receivers have been particularly dominant. Robert Tonyan did score 11 touchdowns on just 52 catches, which should have earned him a Pro Bowl nod. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard each finished the regular season with 33 catches, while MVS had 6 touchdowns and Lazard had 3 scores.
Aaron Jones was the only other Packers’ skill player to get a Pro Bowl nod — he had 201 carries for 1,104 yards and 9 touchdowns on the ground as well as 47 catches for 355 yards and another two scores through the air. Los Angeles’s run defense was just as potent as their pass defense in some respects, so Jones won’t find a lot of running room this week. The last time Jones faced the Rams was in 2018, a game he finished with 12 carries for 86 yards (7.2 YPC) and a score. However, this LA defense is certainly a tougher one to run on. Jamaal Williams (119–505–2) and rookie A.J. Dillon (46–242–2) were also fairly involved on the ground during the regular season.
Green Bay’s offensive line will take on a different structure this week after their recent signing of veteran tackle Jared Veldheer, a player who started at left tackle last week for the Colts. He becomes the first player in NFL history to get a start for two different teams in back-to-back weeks in the playoffs. David Bakhtiari was lost for the season with a torn ACL prior to the team’s game against the Titans, while Ricky Wagner is dealing with multiple leg injuries, and his status is in doubt for this game. Wagner was rolled up on during the Bears game, but he proceeded to gut it out and play every snap. Yosuah Nijman, a developmental rookie, is the only other offensive tackle on the roster, so Veldheer was a great acquisition for veteran insurance.
Billy Turner will likely return to the right tackle spot this week, where he’ll face Leonard Floyd. First-team All-Pro center Corey Linsley will have the toughest assignment against Aaron Donald, who was also a First-Team All-Pro
