2021’s NFL MVP of the Year put on a sterling performance. When the Packers needed him most, Rodgers stepped up and knocked it out of the park. There are rumors and whispers suggesting Rodgers would’ve left the Packers, and the Niners were the prime destination. However, today’s performance has put those rumors in the dirt.

Mason Crosby picked up twelve points from field goals, including the winning goal which took the Packers over the edge. With a little under 30 seconds to go, Rodgers threw the ball down the field, but Davante Adams couldn’t make the most of it. In came Crosby, who nailed another field goal, to win the game for the Packers.

“You know, Matt actually suggested I play on the sidelines. That first play, which was something we actually worked on; Friday in practice. Kind of scribbling in the dirt, and it worked out perfect.” Rodgers stated, “How can you not be romantic about football man?”

Rodgers had some mighty praise for Mason Crosby. He even claimed he knew he would make the 51-yard field goal. “He’s gonna make it. That’s what he’s done his entire career. He’s made a bunch of big kicks for us. I love him to death. We’ve been playing together for fifteen years, sitting next to each other every bus ride, every plane ride. He’s an incredible guy, and he’s so clutch.”

“I feel good about our team. Week one was an anomaly. I said that and I believe we bounced back week two, played a great football team tonight; right down to the wire; and this plane ride is going to feel incredible.”
