Green Bay, carried by his quarterback Aaron Rodgers, likely future MVP of the season and author of an excellent performance, qualified for the National Conference final on Saturday, beating the Los Angeles Rams (32-18).
The Packers quarterback systematically made the right choices during the meeting. At the start of the second quarter, he first threw a quick pass to Davante Adams, who had just given up company to his defender by suddenly changing the axis of the race (10-3) in the in-goal. The second touchdown, almost in stride, was his solo work, thanks to his fake throw which opened the field and allowed him to reach the zone in the race (16-3). A recital of mastery and intelligence. In the second half, his long pass of 58 yards found Allen Lazard left for the touchdown, the 4th of the Packers after that in the race of Aaron Jones (32-18).
In the other semi-final of the day in Buffalo, on behalf of the American conference, the Bills made the difference in the 3rd quarter against the Ravens (17-3), relying first on the throwing strength from Josh Allen, who found Stefon Diggs, then thanks to a ruthless defense that put pressure on Lamar Jackson. The 2019 MVP was intercepted at the worst time on his touchdown attempt by Pernell McPhee, who immediately traveled 100 yards like a murderous arrow (17-3).
