Without a doubt, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have been one of the most headline-grabbing teams this season. They’ve made their way to the NFC North title yet again with one game to go. They need a win on Sunday against their divisional rivals Chicago Bears in order to seal the top seed in the NFC.

Rodgers is in the mix for the NFL MVP award along with Russell Wilson and Patrick Mahomes after another stellar outing in 2020. The 37=year old has already thrown for 4.000+ yards with 44 passing TDs already. Which team has the arsenal to put a stop to the deadly pairing of Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams?

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers gear up for challenging post-season

On today’s instalment of ESPN’s Get Up, Jeff Saturday joined Ryan Smith to discuss the challenge of facing Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in the playoffs. Saturday tipped the Saints to come closest to challenging the Packers who look unstoppable under their star quarterback.

He said, “Yeah, right. It’s a tough, tough question, man. I mean, when you look at all the NFC challengers, I would probably say the Saints have the best opportunity…it’s the offensive line for the Packers that I think ultimately are the difference-maker not only are they protecting for Aaron Rodgers, they’re running the rock”

“So when you talk about what do the Saints have to do? They have to be able to match that he Aaron Rodgers on the sideline, being able to establish their run. It is a tall task. And I’m gonna tell you I don’t care what anybody says. If it’s a bad weather game, Tennessee Titans learnt that lesson the hard way. These guys practice in it, they’re accustomed to it,” Saturday said on the show.

Credit is also due to head coach Matt LaFleur. He is only in his second year in Wisconsin but is already considered to be one of the top coaches in the NFL. A win on Sunday against the Bears will certainly bode well for his CV. But will it be a crime for the Green and Yellow faithful to dream of a Lombardi Trophy this season? We don’t see why not.
