Though Aaron Rodgers talked about playing in this game but we didn’t expect him to be playing as much as he did. Rodgers played three series for the Packers in last nights 22-11 victory over New England which was highlighted by seeing Rodgers hit for a sack, making us all cringe. It’s important for Aaron to get into a rhythm and I believe the Packers wanted to do exactly that especially against one of the better teams in the New England Patriots.

Rodgers tried multiple times to feed the ball to the younger receivers and tight ends which saw a limited amount of success. Its going to be interesting to watch what the Packers will do moving forward in terms of playing time for Rodgers. Rodgers completed 11 of 19 passes for 117 yards on Thursday night.
