Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers have both enjoyed quite a reign on their quarterback thrones. However, even in the twilight of their careers, the duo is showing no signs of slowing down. Tampa Tom sealed the division with his win on Sunday. And A-Rod can lay his hands on that wildcard berth next week. Moreover, their off-football endeavors keep the two connected even after the season.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback is Brady’s golf partner after they are done competing for the Lombardi Trophy. And according to Tom, Rodgers is quite the player. Also, the competition is quite heavy in the golf tournaments with Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes playing for revenge.
