Packers celebrate after their 2021 playoff win against Rams in Lambeau Field

The NFL's No. 1 rated offense prevailed against the league's No. 1 ranked defense at Lambeau Field Saturday night 32-18.

Mason Crosby put the Packers on the board on their first possession of the game with a 24 yard field goal, and Green Bay never trailed after that.

Aaron Rodgers made sure he'd get the opportunity to play an NFC championship game at home for the first time in his Hall of Fame-caliber career.

Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and also ran for a score as the top-seeded Green Bay Packers defeated the Los Angeles Rams.

Green Bay's potent offense overpowered the Rams' vaunted defense for much of the day.

The Packers didn't allow any sacks despite playing without injured All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari. Green Bay sacked Jared Goff four times.

The Packers will host the winner of the Buccaneers/Saints next Sunday at 2:05 p.m. CT.
