Head to Head


Los Angeles Rams won the most recent clash between the two sides, that coming more than two years ago in October 2018. The Green Bay Packers had won eight in a row prior to that.

Green Bay Packers Form


Green Bay Packers enter the playoffs as the number one seeds having won the NFC North with a 13-3 record. The Packers signed off the regular season with six straight wins.

The Packers defeated the Chicago Bears twice, Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions, Carolina Panthers and Tennessee Titans by seven points or more.

Green Bay have enjoyed a week off in preparation for this divisional round clash after defeating the Bears 35-16 two weeks ago to clinch the top seed. 

MVP favourite Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' offence has been seriously impressive all season. Can they now carry that into the playoffs, something they haven't always managed in postseason games in recent years.

The Packers will handle the freezing conditions on Saturday and they should make home advantage count.

Green Bay Packers Team News


The Packers have a near full roster to choose from. Jared Veldheer won't play despite being signed from the Indianapolis practice squad this week. 

Offensive lineman Rick Wagner (knee), linebacker Za'Darius Smith (ankle and thumb) and receiver Allen Lazard (wrist) have slight injury clouds hanging over them, but are expected to be passed fit.

Los Angeles Rams Form


Los Angeles Rams missed out on the NFC West title when losing two games in row in Weeks 15 and 16, before ending the regular season with an 18-7 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

But they didn't let the disappointment affect them as they defeated the Seahawks 30-20 in Seattle in last weekend's Wildcard Weekend showdown. 

The Seahawks had won their last 10 home playoff matches, but the Rams upset the odds to keep their Super Bowl dream alive.

Sean McVay and the Rams defence shocked the world with defensive coordinator Brandon Staley coming up with a masterplan. Quarterback Jared Goff also produced the goods for the Rams despite on ongoing thumb problem.

The Rams have momentum on the back of becoming the first side to win a playoff at Lumen Field in 10 years. Could they now repeat an upset against the Packers?

Los Angeles Rams Team News


Quarterback Jared Goff will line up against the Packers despite that dislocated thumb. Defensive lineman Aaron Donald also expects to play despite damaging ribs last week.

Offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth is a doubt with a knee injury, while quarterback John Wolford (neck) or receiver Cooper Kupp (knee) could also miss the game.
