Allen Lazard: We’re the No. 1 offense, we’re not worried who’s on the other side

Divisional Round - Los Angeles Rams v Green Bay Packers

The Packers finished the regular season leading the league in scoring. The Rams were the league’s best team in yards and points allowed.

Defense wins championships may be the cliché, but Green Bay’s offense came out on top in the divisional round.

The Packers won 32-18 behind 484 yards of offense — the most the Rams surrendered all year. The previous high was 390.

Wide receiver Allen Lazard, who had a 58-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, made it seem like that was the expectation.

“We’re the No. 1 offense,” Lazard said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “We’re not really too worried about who’s on the other side of the ball. We know who we have.”

Who they have is the league’s likely MVP in Aaron Rodgers. The quarterback finished 23-of-36 for 296 yards with a pair of passing TDs and a rushing touchdown.

And now the Packers will host either the Saints or Buccaneers next week for the NFC Championship Game.

  1. Allen Lazard — major contributor — started as undrafted free agent. Scouting is the name of the game. His story is truly inspirational.

  2. He could have had 2 long TDs. Alan’s going to have some mixed feelings when he reviews the game film tomorrow.

  3. joy of joys….what a beautiful victory. Oline was tremendous and the running game was superb. On top of the was Aaron Fricken Rodgers and a defense that held the to 18 points. Clearly you need more than1 8 points to beat this team…. wowzer baby!!!!

  4. Calm down, Alien Lizard, before you start claiming you’ve been disrespected (somehow) and you get a big head about it. You’ll be watching from home before you know it.

  5. This team seems poised for a Superbowl appearance. Rodgers is unbelievable..412 tds against 89 int! Has 16 more tds than big Ben and 112 less ints than Ben!! His numbers are crazy! He’s 7th all time for tds thrown..every Qb ahead of him has over 100+ more ints..thats bonkers.. and I’m not even a Packers fan!

    This actually may be the funniest comment ever on PFT — Mr. self-named “stellar performance” — tell us what have you ever done?

  7. Dude is an incredible blocker. If not for that drop he’d have had two long TDs. He’s a great role player on a team where everyone is, thus far, doing their jobs.

    At least he’s not bragging about his season against 2nd and 3rd corners.

    OH! And his yardage wasn’t in garbage time.

    *cough* Justin Jefferson *cough*

  8. All you need to do is rush CB’s and Rodgers gets frazzled and starts throwing balls in the dirt intentionally.

  9. As a disappointed Rams fan you can only tip your cap to the Packers. . Rams bit on that play action and Rodgers/Lazard made them pay. Hell, I think the Packers play calling was tremendous all day. Nothing cute. It’s how I’d like the Rams offense to be moving forward.

    Imagine if they had Bakhtiari (sp?)

    You know, that injury and the media hyping up the Rams pass rush might have been what galvanized the unit to play so well yesterday. Hell, they couldn’t have played any better aside from that one holding call.

    Great job by the refs yesterday by the way. Just stay out of the way unless it’s absolutely blatant. It’s how every game should be called.

  11. He’s one of the least likely to yap, so that may not be the entirety of what he said. But their offense has had it’s occasional lulls. You can’t afford that in the playoffs.

  12. Weird for a Pack fan to take Lazard’s quote and turn it into talking crap about Justin Jefferson… Don’t be surprised if Suh and the other Bucs defenders have this quote printed and displayed around the practice facility. Famous last words from a player known mostly for dropping the ball in big spots.

  13. Donald’s injury last week completely changed the make-up of this game. He played very limited snaps and was very hindered on the snaps he did play. So to thump your chest about this game seems a lil hollow, considering the best defender in all of football wasn’t readily available unlike all season.
