Aaron Rodgers and Travis Kelce receive major honours after brilliant season

Packers’ stars, Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams, are both set to be named in the AP NFL All-Pro Team. Both players are performing at a high level thus far and will be in the limelight at Lambeau Field in the Divisional Playoff round.

Davante, in particular, has taken his game to a whole new level this season, here’s why. “For me, honestly, I think it’s just been finding different small things that I can get better at, obviously.

“I feel like I’m a pretty complete receiver. … It’s just fine-tuning the things I do well and just figuring out a way to do them even better,” Adams said via AP.

“For a guy to have that much talent, work that hard and be able to learn really every single day like that, that’s what makes him so special on the field.”
