Rodgers searching for first playoff win


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers has the skills, statistics and swagger to be considered one of the NFL's elite quarterbacks. The only thing he's missing is success in the playoffs.

Rodgers will try to change that at Philadelphia on Sunday, where the Green Bay Packers' quarterback will be going for his first career playoff win in his third season as a starter.

Rodgers threw for 3,922 yards this season despite missing a game and a half because of a concussion, with 28 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

While Packers coach Mike McCarthy said earlier this week that Rodgers and the offense have been "a little bit up and down at times," he doesn't want Rodgers to change anything about the way he plays. If Rodgers plays like himself, McCarthy says postseason success will take care of itself.
