Green Bay Packers advance to NFC Championship Game

For the fourth time since 2010, the Green Bay Packers will play in the NFC Championship Game. Aaron Jones and Devante Adams scored twice and the defense held off Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks for a 28-23 win in the Divisional Round of the NFC Playoffs at Lambeau Field.

The Packers targeted Adams early and often and he delivered. After two beautiful touchdowns in the first and third quarters, the Packers were clinging to a 5-point lead and facing a third-and-8 with 2:19 left, Rodgers dropped a dime to Adams for a 32-yard gain.

Adams ended up with a Green Bay playoff record 160 yards on eight catches and two touchdowns.

Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith were big for the defense once again, combining for four sacks, four quarterback hits and two tackles for loss.

The biggest sack was from Preston Smith on Seattle’s final possession.

Green Bay will travel to Santa Clara next Sunday to play for a trip to Super Bowl LIV. Kickoff is at 5:40 pm (CT).
