The Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers endured a heartbreaking loss in overtime to Frank Reich’s Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. A last-gasp fumble from wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling allowed the Colts to score a field goal and win the game by a 34-31 margin.
Despite the loss, there were a number of positives to take home for the Packers. For instance, star quarterback Aaron Rodgers put in a fine performance in Week 11.
The 36-year-old veteran went 27 of 38, throwing for 311 yards with 3 touchdowns and just 1 interception. He remains in contention for the NFL MVP award alongside Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, and Ben Roethlisberger.
But the Packers quarterback was not pleased by some of the events that transpired over the course of the weekend.
The 2-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers made his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday. The veteran quarterback started off his session with an interesting dig aimed at NFL media personnel.
Rodgers claimed that he threw a no-look pass to teammate Davante Adams on Sunday over Colts defender Darius Leonard. However, the media didn’t bother to show that replay for the simple fact that he plays for the Packers.
Had it been someone like Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs, the outcome would have been different.
He also spoke about how Detroit Lions’ QB Matthew Stafford is often overlooked for the same reason.
“I will say this you know a guy who probably doesn’t get anywhere near the credit…He wears number 9 and plays in Detroit. That dude what he does with the ball, it’s impressive. It’s really, really impressive.
“And I, you know, I know Dan Orlovsky will highlight some stuff from time to time because they played together and they’re good friends which you should but that dude has thrown crazy no-lookers all the time,” Rodgers said on the show.
Rodgers has been brilliant, so far in the NFL, leading the charts in multiple categories at this point of the season. Will he be able to lead the Packers to another Super Bowl before looking for a challenge elsewhere?
