Giants Vs. Packers, 2012 NFL Playoffs: Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant Help Pack Tie Game Up

Down_1_medium

After a fumble on the opening kickoff by Randall Cobb was overturned on review — you can see Cobb's knee hitting the ground on the kickoff in the photo above — Aaron Rodgers and the vaunted Green Bay Packers offense wasted little time getting to work on the New York Giants' defense in their NFC Divisional Round game on Sunday.

Ryan Grant opened the Packers' day with a run for 19 yards, and then Rodgers took to the air, finding Greg Jennings, Jermichael Finley, and Grant for three completions totaling 31 yards on Green Bay's opening drive.

But the Packers dropped two passes, and Rodgers' ability to throw on the run failed him on the final third down of the drive, as he missed a wide open Jennings near the Giants' goal line. Mason Crosby had no problem with the 47-yard field goal to cap the drive and make the score 3-3.
