The Green Bay Packers took on the NFC East leading Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday, January 9th, and beat them on their own turf. The Packers had to break out of their usual roles to take the win, using the likes of rookie James Starks and an uncharacteristically strong defense. Still, it was a game filled with rash decisions and unpleasant consequences. The Eagles in particular made a number of mistakes, perhaps the most costly being the 62% conversions on third-downs the team allowed. When all was said and done, Green Bay took the game 21-16 after regulation time with a last-second defended pass by Tramon Williams. Odds.

All of those that pinned the Packers as preseason favorites to reach the Super Bowl had the right frame of mind. The win marked the third elimination game that Green Bay has won this season. Apparently the routing of the New York Giants and Chicago Bears for an official playoff berth was not all the Packers were packing. The defense accomplished their two goals for this NFC Wild Card match: restraining QB Michael Vick and WR DeSean Jackson. The running game also found its way in the legs of Starks, who ran for 123 yards on 23 carries in only his fourth game of the season. Scores.

QB Aaron Rodgers did his part with 18 of 27 for 180 yards and three touchdowns. In his first playoff game as a starter, he accounted for all the teams scoring and completed 60% of his passes. While it was not his best performance, he was there when his team needed him. All in all Green Bay gave an exciting game, but they will have to step it up when they face the league leading Atlanta Falcons on Saturday. Las Vegas odds.

After a strong season, the Eagles came to a rather anti-climatic ending. Pro Bowl kicker David Akers missed two costly field goals that could have made all the difference. Vick and Jackson were limited by GB’s D, and their season ending game was filled with a number of blown opportunities. The one that stung the most was probably Vick’s intercepted pass intended for Riley Cooper with 33 seconds left on the clock. For the latest lines and scores, be sure to check out
