Los Angeles vs. Green Bay divisional round preview

The Packers finished atop the NFC with a 13-3 record, earning a bye during the first round of the playoffs. 

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been electric this year, throwing for 4,300 yards and 48 touchdowns. A whopping 18 of them went to Davante Adams. The stellar season Rodgers has had could put him in line for the league's most valuable player, but he's likely got his heart set on another Super Bowl win. 

The Rams (10-6), meanwhile, defeated their division rival Seahawks last weekend despite starter John Wolford injuring his neck, prompting Jared Goff and his injured thumb to step in and lead the team to victory. 

As of Tuesday, it was unclear who would start at quarterback for the Rams against the Packers. 

The Rams will likely rely on their stout defense to stop Rodgers and the Packers offense. During the regular season, they led the league in points and yards allowed, thanks to the likes of defensive end Aaron Donald and cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

But Lambeau Field in January is a tough place to play, so the Rams will have their work cut out for them.
