It’s difficult to write a better script on the way to end the regular season for any team than how Aaron Rodgers helped the Green Bay Packers finish their season.
Your team is starting to look like the walking dead due to injuries. Luckily, your star player comes back from a serious injury. It’s a must-win game to reach the playoffs. The opponent is your arch-rival on national television. Under a minute left in the game, fourth and eight on your rival’s 48 yard line, and down 1 with 48 yards to go.
Aaron Rodgers drops back in the pocket, facing heavy pressure. A nice chip block from John Kuhn helps him get outside the pocket to buy time. Randall Cobb is scoped sneaking past the Chicago Bears secondary. With a quick twist in the hips and flick of the wrist, Rodgers hits Cobb for a touchdown to win the game.
This play will go down as the greatest play in recent Green Bay Packers history. A clutch moment at its finest. Rodgers knew the significance of what the nation had just witnessed.
“There’s the Super Bowl, and then the Atlanta playoff game that year. Then this game. Today’s in the top three of all my games. It was special, for so many reasons.”
Indeed it was. Oddly enough, Rodgers’ top three games have been outside of Lambeau. Hopefully he can add a home game to his list come next Sunday night.
