Packers secure place in NFC Championship Game- Bears or Seahawks to join them

Say what you will about Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, but the guy looked outstanding tonight against the #1 seed Atlanta Falcons.  The Pack went down to Atlanta and stunned the home crowd with a 48-21 victory on Saturday night.  We are one step closer to seeing a Bears-Packers battle for the NFC championship.

Some quick numbers:


Aaron Rodgers:  31/36, 336 yds, 3 TDs, 0 INTs (plus 1 rushing TD)

James Starks: 25 rushes, 66 yds 

Jennings/Driver: 14 catches, 177 yds

Clay Matthews: 4 tackles, 2 sacks,

Tramon Williams: 2 INTs, 1 TD


Matt Ryan:  20/29, 186 yds, 1 TD, 2 INTs

Michael Turner: 10 rushes, 39 yds, 1 TD

Curtis Loftin: 9 tackles


First downs- GB: 25; ATL: 15

3rd down eff- GB: 8/12; ATL 3/10

Total plays- GB: 69; ATL: 48

Turnovers- GB: 1; ATL: 4

Time of poss- GB: 38:19; ATL: 21:41


Say all you want that the Falcons were not as good as their record indicated, but the Packers looked damn good tonight.  I'm sure there were plenty of teams to take notice tonight, and not just NFC teams.
