The battle between Justin Fields and Aaron Rodgers seems like a mis-match. While one’s a rising talent in the NFL, the other is more than just a seasoned veteran. Rodgers once again proved why he deserves to be in the MVP conversation alongside Tom Brady, Dak Prescott, Patrick Mahomes and more.

Aiding Rodgers on offense was Davante Adams. The wide receiver had two receiving touchdowns, while Aaron Jones had one rushing and one receiving TD. With four TDs and 341 yards to his name, Aaron Rodgers was the MVP of this epic Sunday night fixture. But, we cannot stop talking about how crucial Rasul Douglas has become for the Packers.

Stabilising their defense for good, Douglas notched another pick-six, this time against Fields and the Bears. His contributions don’t go unnoticed, but he hasn’t emerged as a Defensive Player of the Year nominee either. We’ll see how far Douglas goes in this Packers squad, and whether his recent heroics warrant him a spot next season.

The Bears did not look bad, but they simply paled in comparison to the Packers. With Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon healthy, Aaron Rodgers has plenty of targets on the field. When Rodgers has targets, you know there are bound to be touchdowns.
