Rodgers completed 27 of 45 passes for 287 yards with three touchdowns and an interception while rushing four times for 46 yards in Sunday's 44-21 NFC championship game loss to Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

The Rodgers-led Packers offense was shut out in the first half, and couldn't break the ice until he found Davante Adams from two yards out to make it 31-7 with 9:19 left in the third quarter. He later added touchdowns to Jordy Nelson and Jared Cook, but that production was much too little too late. Rodgers was intercepted by Ricardo Allen in the first half, and had another pick reversed by the replay official on his second scoring drive. While the star quarterback did a great job of running the table to get his team to this point following a 4-6 start, there's no doubt the better team came out on top here.

Rodgers said Friday that he's dealing with a slight illness, NFL.com reports, but despite that admission, he does not have an injury designation ahead of Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers being sick follows kicker Mason Crosby missing Wednesday's practice due to illness and wideout Jordy Nelson (ribs) being told to stay home while sick Friday. Nonetheless, that bug isn't considered cause for concern, as Rodgers projected both rest and fluids would help his system be fine in time for Sunday's kickoff. That sentiment is supported by Rodgers being absent from Green Bay's injury report, but the Packers will still certainly hope he returns to health as soon as possible.

Rodgers completed 28 of 43 passes for 356 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 34-31 divisional-round victory over the Cowboys. He also gained 16 yards on two rushes.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers added to the burgeoning legend of his storybook 2016 campaign with a superb all-around performance, and yet another completion that defied the odds and set the Packers up for a game-winning field-goal attempt. The perennial Pro Bowler helped Green Bay build a 28-13 lead by early in the third quarter with a pair of scoring throws to his tight ends, hitting Richard Rodgers for a 34-yard touchdown in the first quarter and then finding Jared Cook from three yards out on the first possession of the second half. However, after the Packers defense allowed that edge to evaporate, it was Rodgers to the rescue, first leading an eight-play, 37-yard drive that culminated in a 56-yard field goal by Mason Crosby that snapped a 28-28 tie. After Dak Prescott did a pretty good Rodgers impression on the subsequent drive, which ended in a game-tying 52-yard field goal by Dan Bailey, Rodgers rolled left on third down with 18 seconds remainin and threw across his body 36 yards downfield to Cook, who just managed to keep his feet inbounds and make a spectacular catch. That led to Mason Crosby's 51-yard game-winning field goal as time expired, sending Rodgers to his third conference championship game. Factoring in Sunday's production, Rodgers has now completed 53 of 83 passes for 718 yards with six touchdowns and just one interception in two postseason contests, with what should likely be a high-scoring shootout against Matt Ryan on tap.

Rodgers completed 25 of 40 passes for 362 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 38-13 victory over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The Green Bay offense got off to a slow start through the first quarter, but Rodgers caught fire thereafter and posted a 125.2 passer rating while delivering the best quarterback performance of the young postseason. Jordy Nelson was lost to injury in the first half, but Rodgers didn't appear to be fazed and connected with Davante Adams and Randall Cobb for a combined 241 yards and four scores. Rodgers is playing as well as anyone going at the moment and will need to put on another strong performance as his squad heads to Dallas for the divisional round.

Rodgers completed 27 of 39 passes for 300 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 31-24 victory over the Lions. He added nine carries for 43 rushing yards.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers fulfilled his prophecy that the Packers would "run the table" by becoming the first Packers QB to throw for at least 300 passing yards and four touchdowns in back-to-back games while engineering the first offense to rack up over 30 points in Detroit's home stadium all season. As an added bonus for fantasy owners, he also gained his most yardage on the ground since Week 9. Since the Packers' win Sunday night secured the NFC North title, Green Bay will subsequently be scheduled for a home date against the Giants in the first round of the playoffs. Especially if New York's top corner Janoris Jenkins (back) can't play, Rodgers could be in position for another massive fantasy day.

Rodgers connected on 28 of 38 pass attempts for 347 yards and four touchdowns in Green Bay's 38-25 victory over the Vikings. He added 13 yards and a rushing score on two carries.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers had his way with the Vikings' defense in the first half, tossing three of his four touchdowns and running in another for his fourth rushing score of the year. While he took his foot off the pedal in the second half, Rodgers ultimately became the first signal caller to break the 300-yard passing threshold against Minnesota all season while managing his third game of the 2016 campaign with four touchdowns through the air. He'll next take aim at the Detroit Lions in Week 17.

Rodgers (calf) does not have an injury designation in advance of Saturday's game against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers was a full participant during each day of practice this week, seemingly putting his calf issue behind him. With no question over his status, Rodgers can be locked into lineups ahead of Saturday's matchup, when he'll look to build on his 10 touchdowns and no interceptions over Green Bay's past five outings.

Rodgers (calf) practiced fully Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers didn't require a single practice rep last week in order to direct the Packers' offense with his normal amount of aplomb Sunday in Chicago. In particular, he displayed his arm strength on the game-winning drive, hooking up with Jordy Nelson on a pass that traveled more than 60 yards through the air in temperatures hovering around zero degrees Fahrenheit. Head coach Mike McCarthy relayed Monday that Rodgers emerged from Sunday's game feeling better than he did heading into the weekend, and the signal-caller backed up McCarthy's assessment by handling every snap in Wednesday's session. With no doubts surrounding his upcoming availability, he'll attempt to strike Saturday versus a Vikings defense that has allowed multiple touchdown throws in four of the last seven outings.

According to Packers coach Mike McCarthy, Rodgers' injured calf is doing better Monday than it was going into Sunday's victory over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers engineered a heroic, game-winning drive Sunday despite not practicing all last week due to his calf problem. Besides obviously appearing less mobile, Rodgers was mostly his usual self despite the ailment, calming concerns of his fantasy owners. McCarthy's update on his calf Monday should provide further encouragement, especially since Rodgers has one less day to be ready for this weekend's game, which falls on Saturday versus the Vikings. While Rodgers' condition will continue to be evaluated over the course of this week, it wouldn't be surprising at all if he remains restricted in Green Bay's practice preparations to ensure he's not overextended ahead of another crucial contest.

Rodgers completed 19 of 31 passes for 252 yards without a touchdown or turnover Sunday in Chicago. He added three carries for 19 yards in the 30-27 victory.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers let the running game do most of the work, as he went without a touchdown pass for the first time this season. This poor performance snapped an eight-game multi-touchdown streak. While he's still among the top options at the quarterback position, Rodgers has underwhelmed with just four 300-plus yard performances in 2016.
