The Aaron Donald-led Los Angeles Rams made their way to a comprehensive 20-30 win against the Seattle Seahawks at the CenturyLink Field last weekend.
The visitors earned major plaudits for putting up a strong defensive show to stop the likes of Russell Wilson, DK Metcalf, and Tyler Lockett. Now, they get ready to go up against one of the best-attacking teams in the NFC, Green Bay Packers.
Veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers is having the best season of his career at the moment. Throwing for 4,299 yards with 48 passing touchdowns, Rodgers is leading the race for the NFL MVP.
It won’t be an easy task to stop the 2-time MVP along with WR Davante Adams. But if one man can do it, it’s Aaron Donald.
Despite the persistent reports, it seems that Donald is set to feature on Saturday, at least that’s what he says.
“The way I’m feeling right now, I’m not too worried about it,” he said. “I feel good, I feel strong, and I’ll be ready come Saturday,” Donald told reporters.
With Donald on their roster, can the Rams pull off a major upset in the NFL Divisional Playoff Round?

Aaron Donald-led LA Rams face toughest game of the campaign on Saturday
Max Kellerman made his latest appearance on ESPN’s First Take earlier today. The outspoken American sports analyst had a special message for Aaron Donald and the Rams in the build-up to the matchup.
“It’s Donald against the interior offensive line to me. And there are lots of good matchups, but that’s the most important one.
“They have a Pro Bowl-caliber center in Green Bay, but because of Bakhtiari’s injury, he’s gonna really have to help the interior, the guard next to him is the weak link on that Packers offensive line.
“So to me it comes down to Donald, is he healthy? And if he is today, I think it’s pretty clear the Rams are going to have to say you’re going to have to use not just one lineman to stop them…that will affect the entire game,” Kellerman said on the show.
Rodgers will definitely miss the presence of David Bakhtiari ahead of him. But he is a hustler and will not let anything distract him. He seems in the mood to go all the way, so let’s hope the Rams come prepared. You cannot afford to miss this game.
