What. A. Finish.

Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers showed the NFL why he's the most clutch quarterback in the business once again on 3rd-and-20 with just 12 seconds remaining in Sunday's NFC Divisional Round matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

Rodgers made a beautiful throw to tight end Jared Cook, who had an even better sideline grab, which set up a Mason Crosby 51-yard field goal for a 34-31 win over the Cowboys.

After the game, Green Bay receiver Randall Cobb revealed something wild about the play:

Cobb said the final play was not an actual playcall. Rodgers just told each receiver what to do, like a kid drawing in the dirt. Seriously.

The Packers advance to face the Atlanta Falcons on the road in the NFC Championship Game next weekend.
