How and why the Packers beat the Rams in NFC Divisional Round – Packers Wire

– The Packers welcomed 8.456 fans to Lambeau Field, and they delivered some noise, which was noticeable even through the television broadcast. Each player said it made a difference. Tough not to gain some energy from the first home crowd of the year.

– The Packers scored on their first five offensive possessions, putting immense pressure on the Rams. Back-to-back touchdowns in the first half produced a 16-3 advantage, and the Packers scored nine points on the possessions before and after the half to go up 25-10.

– The Packers only had three penalties for 22 yards. One was a highly questionable holding penalty on Rick Wagner. Matt LaFleur’s team played a clean game overall.

– Cornerback Jaire Alexander allowed just one catch into his coverage, according to Next Gen Stats.

– Defensive lineman Kenny Clark finally saw all his good work payoff in the box score. He was in on two different sacks.
