Packers coach Matt LaFleur also moved to 39-9 in his first three seasons as the team’s head coach. It’s the most wins for a head coach through their first three seasons in NFL history.

Rodgers finished 29-for-38 with 288 yard passate e due passaggi da touchdown. A.J. Dillon had 14 carries for 63 yard e due touchdown. Davante Adams had 11 catture per 136 yard e un touchdown.

The quarterback now hopes Green Bay has the momentum to carry them through the NFC Championship and into the Super Bowl. The Packers just missed out on the big game two years in a row and Rodgers has only been to one Super Bowl his entire career.

PACKERS ROUT VIKINGS IN COLD TO TAKE NFC’S TOP SEED

Last year we didn’t get that good Green Bay weather. Tonight was one of those nights. We haven’t had a game like this in a while temperature-wise. This was different. It is different, the whole feel of it. I feel like teams can break a little bit easier when it is this cold because there’s an excuse – the weather,” Rodgers said after the win over the Vikings.
