Following last weekend’s Wild Card round, the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs gets underway this weekend with the Green Bay Packers hosting the Los Angeles Rams at Lambeau Field.

As the NFC top-seed, the Packers bypassed the Wild Card round, while the Rams have made it this far following their 30-20 win over the Seattle Seahawks last Saturday.

The Rams have had the NFL's best defense this season, while the Packers scored the most points in the regular season, which means this fixture has all the hallmarks to be a mighty showdown.

“This is what you love,” Rams coach Sean McVay said. “These are the type of matchups and opportunities that as a competitor, you can’t wait for.”

The Packers go into the game on a six-game winning streak and will be favorites to move on to the last four, however the Green Bay team will be taking nothing for granted against the on-form Rams, who managed to sack Russell Wilson five times in a 30-20 victory at Seattle last week.

The fifth sack in that game came from Aaron Donald, who had the second highest number of sacks in the regular season with 13½ -- a stat that will keep Packers QB legend Aaron Rogers on his toes.

“[Donald]’s a special, special player, obviously a Hall-of-Famer. An impact player every single year and a guy that you have to game plan for,” said Rogers. “You have to be aware of where he’s at, at all times, and he's just one of those special talents that we haven’t seen a lot of in the history of this game."
