Rodgers magic takes Packers past Falcons

6:56 pm on 16 January 2011

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers delivered a masterful performance to lead the Packers to a 48-21 away victory over the Atlanta Falcons and one win away from a place in NFL's Super Bowl.

The Packers showed why they have long been regarded as one of the favorites for this season's Super Bowl as they demolished Atlanta, the NFC's top-seeded team, with a brilliant display in a one-sided divisional playoff.

They will now meet the winner of Sunday's other NFC game between the Chicago Bears and the Seattle Seahawks in next week's conference championship for a place in the Super Bowl, at Dallas on February 6th.
