A look at the four games in the Divisional round of the 2020 NFL playoffs:

LOS ANGELS RAMS (11-6) at GREEN BAY PACKERS (13-3)

Saturday, FOX/FOX Deportes, 4:35 PM ET      

  • Green Bay is playing a postseason game in a 34th season, surpassing the DALLAS COWBOYS (33 postseasons) for the most in NFL history. With a victory, the Packers would tie the PITTSBURGH STEELERS (36 postseason wins) for the second-most postseason wins in league annals, trailing only the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (37).
  • Under head coach MATT LAFLEUR, who took the team’s reins in 2019, the Packers have won 13-or-more games in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1996-97, when they advanced to Super Bowls XXXI and XXXII.
  • LaFleur, who worked with Rams head coach SEAN MCVAY in both Washington and Los Angeles, has 26 regular-season wins, surpassing STEVE MARIUCCI (25, 1997-98) for the second-most by an individual in his first two seasons as an NFL head coach in league history. Only GEORGE SEIFERT (28, 1989-90) has more.
  • Green Bay led the NFL with 31.8 points per game, the second-highest total in franchise history (35.0 points per game in 2011), and paced the league by scoring touchdowns on 80 percent (48 of 60) of its red-zone possessions.
  • The Rams allowed the fewest points per game (18.5), fewest yards per game (281.9), fewest passing yards per game (190.7), and ranked second in sacks (53) in the NFL this season.
  • In the Rams’ 30-20 Wild Card win at Seattle, running back CAM AKERS registered 176 scrimmage yards (131 rushing, 45 receiving), third among rookies in postseason history. Only Washington’s TIMMY SMITH (213 in Super Bowl XXII on Jan. 31, 1988) and the Houston Oilers’ BILLY CANNON (178 on Jan. 1, 1961) had more. Akers’ 131 rushing yards were eighth-most among rookies in NFL postseason history.
  • Rams defensive lineman AARON DONALD, who had two sacks in his team’s Wild Card win, tied for second in the league with 13.5 sacks in 2020 and became the fourth player since 1982 with at least eight sacks in each of his first seven seasons, joining Pro Football Hall of Famers DERRICK THOMAS and REGGIE WHITE, as well as DEMARCUS WARE.
  • Donald has 85.5 sacks in his first seven seasons and surpassed Pro Football Hall of Famer DERRICK THOMAS (85) for the most sacks by a player in his first seven seasons since 1982, when the individual sack became an official statistic.
  • Green Bay quarterback AARON RODGERS led the NFL with a career-high 48 touchdown passes this season, tied with Pro Football Hall of Famer DAN MARINO (48 touchdown passes in 1984) for the fifth-most touchdown passes in a single season in NFL history.
  • Rodgers led the NFL with a 121.5 passer rating, the second-highest single-season mark by a quarterback in NFL history, trailing only his 122.5 rating in 2011.
  • Rodgers enters Saturday’s game having thrown a touchdown pass in 14 consecutive postseason games.
  • Packers wide receiver DAVANTE ADAMS led the NFL with 18 touchdown receptions, tied for the third-most touchdowns by a wide receiver in a single-season in NFL history. Only Pro Football Hall of Famers RANDY MOSS (23 touchdowns in 2007) and JERRY RICE (23 touchdowns in 1987) had more.

BALTIMORE RAVENS (12-5) at BUFFALO BILLS (14-3)

Saturday, NBC/Universo, 8:15 PM ET

  • In Baltimore’s 20-13 Wild Card win at Tennessee, Ravens head coach JOHN HARBAUGH registered his eighth career postseason victory in road games, surpassing TOM COUGHLIN (seven postseason road wins) and Pro Football Hall of Famer TOM LANDRY (seven) for the most in NFL history.
  • The Ravens are 16-10 (.615) all-time in the postseason, the second-best winning percentage in NFL history behind New England (37-21, .638).
  • Baltimore quarterback LAMAR JACKSON rushed for 136 yards, including a 48-yard touchdown, in the Ravens’ Wild Card win. At 24 years and three days old, he became the third-youngest quarterback in NFL history to win both an NFL MVP and a postseason game. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer DAN MARINO (23 years, 106 days) and PATRICK MAHOMES (23 years, 117 days) accomplished it at a younger age.
  • Including 236 rushing yards in its Wild Card victory, Baltimore has totaled 889 rushing yards (296.3 per game) over its last three games. Led by Jackson, who became the first quarterback in NFL history with multiple 1,000-yard rushing seasons, Baltimore led the NFL this season with 3,071 rushing yards and 191.9 rushing yards per game. The Ravens are the first team in league history to rush for at least 3,000 yards in consecutive seasons.
  • Ravens rookie running back J.K. DOBBINS has rushed for a touchdown in seven consecutive games, including the Wild Card win, tied for the second-longest such streak by a rookie in NFL history, including playoffs. Only MAURICE JONES-DREW (eight games in 2006) has a longer streak.
  • Buffalo quarterback JOSH ALLEN, who led the Bills to their first playoff victory since the 1995 season, completed 26 of 35 attempts (74.3 percent) for 324 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions for a 121.6 rating, and rushed for 54 yards and a touchdown on Super Wild Card Weekend. Allen became the first player in NFL history to pass for at least 300 yards with a completion percentage of 70 or higher and rush for 50-or-more yards in a postseason game.
  • Also in the Bills’ Wild Card win, wide receiver STEFON DIGGS caught six passes for 128 yards and a touchdown. Diggs, who had six receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown with Minnesota in a 2017 Divisional playoff win, joined Pro Football Hall of Famer JERRY RICE as the only players to register at least 125 receiving yards and one-or-more touchdowns in a postseason game with multiple teams in NFL history.
