Packers Crush Falcons, 48-21: Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 31 of 36 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another, dismantling the No. 1 seed Atlanta Falcons 48-21 and advancing to the NFC Championship Game. "Rodgers made counterpart Matt Ryan(notes) look like one of the kids competing in the halftime 'Punt, Pass and Kick' contest," writes Jason Cole.

Did you see the male winner in the 14-15 age group? He was a beast of a kid.

That kid was huge! Cursory GIS search led me to no images. :(

Oh, that was a fantastic game. A fantastic, fantastic game.

I felt bad for the non-Packer-jersey-wearing kids at that halftime thing because the jackass Falcons fans weren't cheering for anybody. They're kids competing in athletic stuff! Cheer for them!

Ugh.

Just, ugh.

This loss will take some getting over.

That pick just before halftime was a backbreaker (as was the Patriots giving up 7 just before halftime after the botched fake punt), although the way Rodgers was playing, I suspect GB would have prevailed in any event.
