Giants Vs. Packers, 2012 NFL Playoffs: Dropped Passes Force Pack's Punt

Aaron Rodgers is going above and beyond his usual duties for the Green Bay Packers against the New York Giants. He would probably appreciate his receivers stepping up in kind. Drops killed the Packers' third offensive drive of the day at Lambeau Field, forcing the Packers to punt for the first time.

Rodgers threw passes that hit the hands of both James Starks and Tom Crabtree on the last set of downs on the possession, but neither player could haul in the ball.

As for Rodgers' extraordinary day: typically, he uses his legs to make things happen in the passing game, but he has instead made plays as a runner moving downfield in this NFL playoffs matchup, carrying the ball three times for 23 yards.
