Rodgers completed 28 of 43 passes for 356 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 34-31 divisional-round victory over the Cowboys. He also gained 16 yards on two rushes. Rodgers added to the burgeoning legend of his storybook 2016 campaign with a superb all-around performance, and yet another completion that defied the odds and set the Packers up for a game-winning field-goal attempt. The perennial Pro Bowler helped Green Bay build a 28-13 lead by early in the third quarter with a pair of scoring throws to his tight ends, hitting Richard Rodgers for a 34-yard touchdown in the first quarter and then finding Jared Cook from three yards out on the first possession of the second half. However, after the Packers defense allowed that edge to evaporate, it was Rodgers to the rescue, first leading an eight-play, 37-yard drive that culminated in a 56-yard field goal by Mason Crosby that snapped a 28-28 tie. After Dak Prescott did a pretty good Rodgers impression on the subsequent drive, which ended in a game-tying 52-yard field goal by Dan Bailey, Rodgers rolled left on third down with 18 seconds remainin and threw across his body 36 yards downfield to Cook, who just managed to keep his feet inbounds and make a spectacular catch. That led to Mason Crosby's 51-yard game-winning field goal as time expired, sending Rodgers to his third conference championship game. Factoring in Sunday's production, Rodgers has now completed 53 of 83 passes for 718 yards with six touchdowns and just one interception in two postseason contests, with what should likely be a high-scoring shootout against Matt Ryan on tap.
Rodgers completed 25 of 40 passes for 362 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 38-13 victory over the Giants. The Green Bay offense got off to a slow start through the first quarter, but Rodgers caught fire thereafter and posted a 125.2 passer rating while delivering the best quarterback performance of the young postseason. Jordy Nelson was lost to injury in the first half, but Rodgers didn't appear to be fazed and connected with Davante Adams and Randall Cobb for a combined 241 yards and four scores. Rodgers is playing as well as anyone going at the moment and will need to put on another strong performance as his squad heads to Dallas for the divisional round.
Rodgers completed 27 of 39 passes for 300 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 31-24 victory over the Lions. He added nine carries for 43 rushing yards. Rodgers fulfilled his prophecy that the Packers would "run the table" by becoming the first Packers QB to throw for at least 300 passing yards and four touchdowns in back-to-back games while engineering the first offense to rack up over 30 points in Detroit's home stadium all season. As an added bonus for fantasy owners, he also gained his most yardage on the ground since Week 9. Since the Packers' win Sunday night secured the NFC North title, Green Bay will subsequently be scheduled for a home date against the Giants in the first round of the playoffs. Especially if New York's top corner Janoris Jenkins (back) can't play, Rodgers could be in position for another massive fantasy day.
Rodgers connected on 28 of 38 pass attempts for 347 yards and four touchdowns in Green Bay's 38-25 victory over the Vikings. He added 13 yards and a rushing score on two carries. Rodgers had his way with the Vikings' defense in the first half, tossing three of his four touchdowns and running in another for his fourth rushing score of the year. While he took his foot off the pedal in the second half, Rodgers ultimately became the first signal caller to break the 300-yard passing threshold against Minnesota all season while managing his third game of the 2016 campaign with four touchdowns through the air. He'll next take aim at the Detroit Lions in Week 17.
Rodgers (calf) does not have an injury designation in advance of Saturday's game against the Vikings. Rodgers was a full participant during each day of practice this week, seemingly putting his calf issue behind him. With no question over his status, Rodgers can be locked into lineups ahead of Saturday's matchup, when he'll look to build on his 10 touchdowns and no interceptions over Green Bay's past five outings.
