By now, Aaron Rodgers is well established as the Hail Mary king. So, it shouldn’t be surprising when he connects on one. Still, we couldn’t help but be a little surprised to see Rodgers and Randall Cobb hit connect on one to end the first half.

If that looks familiar, it should. When the New York Giants defeated the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round five years ago, Eli Manning and Hakeem Nicks connected on a Hail Mary at the end of he half. Prior to that play, New York was leading 13-10 and rode the 20-10 halftime lead to a 37-20 win.

In this game, Green Bay was winning 7-6. Time will tell what this leads to. But the Packers lead 14-6 at halftime, despite being dominated for much of the first half.
