Packers to face Rams in divisional round
The Green Bay Packers’ opponent for the NFC Divisional playoff next weekend has been determined: the Los Angeles Rams.
Green Bay will host the game at Lambeau Field on Saturday, Jan. 16, at 3:35 p.m. CT.
The Rams (11-6) stunned the Seahawks in Seattle in the wild-card round, with Jared Goff stepping in for injured starter John Wolford less than two weeks after having three pins surgically inserted into his broken right thumb.
Goff’s health will be closely monitored throughout the week, leading into the showdown with Aaron Rodgers and the NFC’s top-seeded Packers (13-3).
Green Bay coach Matt LaFleur, whose team had a first-round bye, was Rams coach Sean McVay’s offensive coordinator during the 2017 season.
