NFL Playoffs 2012, Packers Vs. Giants: Aaron Rodgers Says 'We Got Beat By The Better Team Tonight'

While the Green Bay Packers can point to a litany of offensive mistakes they made in the aftermath of their stunning 37-20 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday, perhaps the most stunning aspect was how convincing a win it was.

As Aaron Rodgers told the media afterwards:

"We got beat by a better team tonight. That's the reality of this league. It's tough. Didn't think it was going to end tonight."

The Giants outgained the Packers 420 yards to 388, with Eli Manning outplaying Aaron Rodgers.

Manning completed 64% of his passes for 330 yards and 3 TD's compared to Rodgers' completion percentage of 57% for 264 yards and 2 TD's.

Green Bay played from behind the entire game, with New York striking on the first possession, moving the ball 67 yards down the field for a 31-yard Lawrence Tynes field goal.

And after allowing a four-play touchdown drive at the end of the first half, the Packers never trailed by fewer than seven points the rest of the game.
