With Rodgers leading way, Packers look to keep streak going

The Packers beat the Giants 23-16 in Week 5

It all started past year when he pulled off the first of two Hail Mary pass completions - the first one coming at Detroit. "It felt like it was meant to be today".

The Green Bay Packers are certifiably hot after winning their seventh game in a row Sunday, but they'll face the challenge of playing the Dallas Cowboys next in the playoffs - and they may be without one of Aaron Rodgers's favorite targets.

Just remember when you watch this weekend's divisional games: One play for either side could end up changing the entire playoffs.

Whether he likes it or not and whether it's warranted or not, these kind of criticisms will follow Beckham Jr. all offseason.

The Hail Mary jump-started an unexpected blowout between these two NFC heavyweights. That play ended the Cowboys season. The Giants led 20-10 at halftime and rolled to a 37-20 win.

My best pick last week, Pittsburgh, delivered an easy win, and I also won with Green Bay and Seattle.

But this is Rodgers' year, if not all of the Packers, and he's not anywhere close to being done.

"That's three in the last calendar year or so", Rodgers said.

Roethlisberger, who connected on 13 of 18 passes for 197 yards, suffered a right ankle injury late in the game but vowed "I'll be out there next week". The Giants' other top receivers, Sterling Shepard and Victory Cruz, also didn't get into the end zone either against a banged-up Packers secondary. The Packers made most of their big plays on in-breaking routes against the Giants, but Nelson's 59 catches outside the numbers led the entire National Football League this season. "I'm just really excited to be out there and have fun with everyone". We came here and lost twice [including the regular season].

"It's unbelievable. It's unbelievable", Cobb said. We had a couple chances instead of having six points of having 14 points early on in the game and put the pressure on them. The bottom line is that the Packers are playing like the Packers we expected to see before the season started, as Rodgers is playing at an MVP level and the defense has improved since getting some guys back from injury.

One may have thought he would have sent a couple of receivers deep and a couple on out-routes near the sideline to pick up some yardage before a possible field goal attempt.

While the Giants try to disguise their coverage as Cover 2, it's Cover 1 all the way with Landon Collins playing deep. "But I feel like if we can keep him in the pocket, we'll be able to get him down".

Once Cobb makes the catch at the 15-yard line, it's over. "I can throw it. Dez can too".

"The guy is an animal in there", Cowboys defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford said, via the Dallas Morning News. "But the ball was overthrown and Cobb just (stayed) inbounds and just reached out and caught it. That was about it".

There were certainly other factors at work besides Rodgers' stellar play. The Giants said they won't comment.
