During his 18 years here in Green Bay Aaron Rodgers has created some memorable moments.
Some left us speechless, while others left us jumping around and screaming our lungs out.
With Rodgers making the announcement this week that he intends to play for the New York Jets. We’ll look back on Aaron’s top five games as a Green Bay Packer.
5. Wild Card game vs Arizona Cardinals (2009)
Even though the Packers lost this game, Rodgers showed he belonged alongside the elite Quarterbacks in the NFL. The Packers were down 31-10 early in the third quarter before mounting a furious rally. Rodgers was 28 of 42 for 423 yards and had 4 touchdown passes along with a rushing touchdown. This remains the only playoff game where Rodgers threw for over 400 yards.
4. NFC divisional round vs Falcons (2010)
The Atlanta Falcons came into the game as the top seed in the NFC and had all the confidence in the world going up against the sixth seeded Packers, who defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card Round the week before. The crowd was pumped, but Rodgers silenced them with his performance. The ball barely touched the ground with Rodgers completing 31 of 36 passes for 366 yards and 3 touchdowns. He also had a passer rating of 136.8 which is the highest in the postseason for him. Green Bay won the game 48-21 over the Falcons and earned a trip to the NFC championship game for the first time since 2008.
3. Week 13 vs the Bears (2013)
Rodgers was making his return after seven games out from a broken collarbone that he suffered vs the Bears. Rodgers was able to come back and haunt the Bears and their fans at Soldier Field, with the Packers down one and facing a fourth and eight Rodgers heaved a 48 yard Hail Mary touchdown to Randall Cobb, ending the Bears season and putting the Packers in the playoffs.
2. Week 10 vs Bears (2014)
Rodgers had a career night against the Bears in 2014. He tied a career high six touchdowns and passed for 315 yards and that was all in the first half.
Rodgers hit 5 different receivers for touchdowns including two to Jordy Nelson.
The Packers went on to win 55-14 and sent the Bears home with a loss and their head coach Marc Trestman was fired the next day.
1. Super Bowl XLV vs the Steelers (2011)
In what would be Rodgers only appearance as a Packer in the Super Bowl Rodgers led the Packers to a 31 to 25 win over the number one ranked defense that year, the Pittsburgh Steelers and returned the title back to Titletown.
Rodgers completed 29 of 39 passes for 304 yards and 3 touchdowns including a memorable 21 yard dart to Greg Jennings.
NFC Divisional game vs Dallas Cowboys (2016)
Week 1 vs Chicago Bears (2018)
Week 13 vs Detroit Lions (2015)
As you can see it was really hard to narrow down the list of games.
From being the fresh faced kid from California in 2005 to bringing back the title to Titletown in 2011 to dominating the Bears, Rodgers has given us a lot of great memories during his 15 seasons as starting quarterback for the Packers.——————
