Aaron Rodgers has yet again delivered his part, but the defense disappointed the Green Bay Packers to a 34-31 defeat against their division rivals Minnesota Vikings. This loss has led the Packers down to 8-3 so far this season, yet they still dominate the NFC North division race by a mile as second to them are the 5-5 Minnesota Vikings themselves.

Rodgers looked sharp in the field as ever, and his emphatic four-touchdown game has just clarified that the quarterback is in no doubt on top of his fitness. The quarterback completed 2 of 33 passes with 385 yards covered with four TDs and zero INTs.

Aaron Rodgers trolled by Packers wide receiver

Aaron Rodgers threw four of his touchdown passes to Davante Adams [2], Josiah Deguara [1] and Marquez Valdes-Scantling [1]. The touchdown pass to Scantling was the most impressive run made in that game as the reception covered 75 yards, making it his career long catch. And to celebrate the moment the wide receiver took to Twitter to pull the leg of the veteran quarterback.

“Just practicing social distancing,” Marquez tweeted. He obviously referred to the recent incident regarding the quarterback not being vaccinated. Surely Marquez has proven himself to have a good sense of humor and an equally good catching talent, but the credit also goes to Aaron Rodgers for his splendid vision and playmaking abilities.

Marquez has been doing well ever since his return against the Kansas City Chiefs. The receiver was out for six games after tweaking his hamstring against San Francisco on Sept. 26. Since his return, he has caught a 41-yard pass last week against Seattle and unleashed his inner beast against the Vikings by receiving four catches for 123 yards and a touchdown.

It was an unexpected loss for the Packers. They seemed to be at the edge of victory after Marquez’s 75-yard TD leveled up the game 31-31. However, it was the failure of the defense in the end. It gave the Vikings enough room to score a field goal, taking the lead by three and finally the win too.
