Yet another achievement for Aaron Rodgers.
After throwing 48 touchdowns with just five interceptions in the regular season, Rodgers has already earned many awards for his play this year.
Already a Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro, the Green Bay Packers‘ superstar quarterback has now been named the Pro Football Writers of America MVP for 2020.
It will come as no surprise to Packers fans who have watched him put together arguably the best season of his incredible career. Setting a new career-best and franchise record in touchdown passes was one thing, but to do it with only five interceptions is simple unheard of.
It likely won’t be Rodgers’ last personal achievement of the year. The Associated Press NFL MVP award will be announced the weekend of the Super Bowl. After being named a first-team All-Pro, it seems almost certain Rodgers will also take home his third NFL MVP award in a couple of weeks.
While these personal milestones will carry a lot of importance for Rodgers, I’m sure he’d trade it all in for another Super Bowl this year.
Well, after the team’s impressive 32-18 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round last weekend, Rodgers and the Packers have their best opportunity at going all the way since they last lifted the Lombardi Trophy a decade ago.
The question now is whether Rodgers can lead his team to another ring and potentially land a second Super Bowl MVP award.
Now that would be quite something. The NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP in the same season?
Standing in Green Bay’s way are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team that embarrassed the Packers at Raymond James Stadium in Week 6. However, if the Packers can get revenge this week, they’ll punch their ticket back to the same stadium for the Super Bowl.
But, until then, huge congratulations to Aaron Rodgers for taking home the PFWA MVP award for 2020.
