Packers WR Romeo Doubs produces career-high 151 receiving yards in playoff win over Cowboys

Green Bay Packers receiver Romeo Doubs produced four catches of 20 or more yards, a career-high 151 receiving yards and the final touchdown of Sunday’s 48-32 win over the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.

Jordan Love and Doubs connected on a 22-yard completion on the first touchdown drive, a 26-yard completion on 3rd-and-9, a 15-yard completion on the second touchdown drive, a 39-yard completion on the Packers third touchdown drive, a 46-yard completion on the first touchdown drive of the second half and a 3-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

“Rome, he was on one tonight,” coach Matt LaFleur said.

The Packers scored six offensive touchdowns. Doubs had a catch on five of the six scoring drives.

Doubs caught all six of his targets and averaged 25.2 yards per catch. His touchdown put the Packers up 48-16 in the fourth quarter.

Doubs’ 151 receiving yards rank third in team playoff history, behind only Davante Adams (160, 2019) and Jermichael Finley (159, 2009).

His previous season high and career high was 95 yards (Week 4, vs. DET). Dating back to college, Doubs’ 151 receiving yards on Sunday represent his most since producing 159 against Air Force while at Nevada in 2021.

According to Next Gen Stats, Doubs produced 58 yards after the catch, including five or more yards on three of his catches over 20 yards.

Doubs became the third different Packers receiver to produce 100 or more receiving yards in the last three weeks. Bo Melton went over 100 in Week 17 vs. the Minnesota Vikings and Jayden Reed went over 100 in Week 18 vs. the Chicago Bears.

Doubs’ 151 receiving yards is the most by a Packers receiver since Adams produced 206 in a win over the Cincinnati Bengals in 2021.

The performance didn’t come as a surprise to the quarterback.

“It was awesome, just how locked in Rome was this whole week,” Love said post-game.

Doubs and the Packers will go to San Francisco to play the 49ers in the NFC Divisional Round next weekend.
