NFL Playoff Scores: Packers Vs. Eagles - Green Bay Leads Philly, 14-3, On Arm Of Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers enter halftime with a 14-3 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles. This wild card weekend game has not been match-up of might offenses so far, but Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has used his arm to accomplish all of the scoring. He threw a seven-yard touchdown pass to Tom Crabtree with seconds left in the first quarter and then he added a second touchdown pass with less than six minutes left in the second quarter. On that scoring drive, Rodgers and the Packers went 12 plays for 57 yards. James Jones had the nine-yard touchdown reception.

The Eagles have done little on offense, though Michael Vick did have a nice pass to Jeremy Maclin for 44 yards toward the end of the half. However, the Eagles wound up with only three points on the drive after a David Akers 29-yard field goal.

Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson left the game following a knee injury and missed an extended period of time. However, he returned around the 4:00 mark in the second quarter, ready to go.

If the Packers win, they will face the Atlanta Falcons next Saturday; an Eagles victory means they would face the Bears, and the Falcons would host the Seattle Seahawks.
