Twitter Aaron Rodgers, Robert Alford

In the midst of the Falcons' 44-21 NFC Championship Game blowout win over the Packers, you may have missed the most dramatic performance of the game. Atlanta cornerback Robert Alford took a push from Aaron Rodgers and ... a couple seconds later ... fell to the ground.



Maybe Alford was just practicing his trust fall with the official.

It was actually Rodgers who got a penalty on the play. The Packers quarterback ripped off Alford's helmet with a stiff arm just before Alford's flop and he was given a 15-yard face mask penalty.


What a way to close out the Georgia Dome.
