I mean, what can you even say about Aaron Rodgers at this point?

Rodgers led Green Bay to a 38-13 home victory over the No. 5 NFC seed New York Giants to wrap up Wild Card Round action. Rodgers completed 25-of-40 passes for 362 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions for a 125.2 passer rating in the contest to lead the Packers' to their seventh straight victory.

Rodgers' second touchdown throw was a 42-yard Hail Mary completion to Randall Cobb. It is his third Hail Mary in two seasons.

Richard Rodgers (played but no stats) and Trevor Davis (inactive) also advanced with Rodgers for Green Bay. They’ll play Dallas next week. Stephen Anderson (Houston) advanced as well for the Texans, who will play the Patriots next week.

LP Ladouceur (Dallas), Alex Mack (Atlanta) and Mitchell Schwartz (Kansas City) will all be playing in the Divisional Round after those three had opening-round byes.

Marvin Jones caught four passes for 81 receiving yards for Detroit in their loss to Seattle. His 30-yard catch that was the Lions' longest play of the game from the line of scrimmage.
