ATLANTA (AP)—Brett who? Aaron Rodgers has turned these NFL
playoffs into his own showcase.
NFC's top-seeded team, Rodgers threw three
touchdown passes, ran for another score and led the Green Bay
Packers to their second straight postseason road victory with a
stunning 48-21 rout of the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night.
The Packers (12-6) will have to win one more on the road to
complete their improbable run from sixth seed to the Super Bowl,
but nothing looks out of the question the way Rodgers is playing.
He'll lead Green Bay into the NFC championship game at either
Chicago or Seattle next weekend.
"That's what you dream about," Rodgers said. "This just feels
so good right now. To be able to put up an offensive performance
like that, it's just incredible."
Rodgers completed 31 of 36 passes for 366 yards, more than Brett
Favre - the guy he replaced in Green Bay - ever threw for in a
playoff game. After knocking off Michael Vick and the Eagles in
Philadelphia, then dominating Matt Ryan and the Falcons in Atlanta,
Rodgers is creating his own legacy in Titletown USA.
