Aaron Rodgers has been in phenomenal shape ever since losing his first game against the Saints this season. It is because of Rodgers that the Green Bay Packers have been able to bounce back; they defeated the undefeated Arizona Cardinals and that too without the likes of their three main receivers.

Rodgers has certainly proved that he belongs in the league, a notion which many believed to be otherwise after his first game of the season. However, his exceptional performance and mesmerizing outcomes after that have shut many of his haters.

Pat McAfee compares Brock Lesnar with Aaron Rodgers

Pat McAfee, the sports analyst, podcaster and wrestling commentator, who is also a great friend of Rodgers, gave a reference to the quarterback on a wrestling show when Brock Lesnar showed up on WWE SmackDown this Friday.

“Brock Lesnar showed up and started throwing humans around like Aaron Rodgers throws footballs on Thursday nights,” said McAfee. His love for Aaron Rodgers and the NFL can never keep him from pointing at those two, even if he is commentating on other sports.

Surely Aaron Rodgers’ Thursday night display against the Arizona Cardinals was worth the commendation as he rose from hitting rock bottom against the Saints to bouncing back sky-high after beating the unbeaten Cardinals on Week 8.

The Green Bay Packers have maintained a seven-game winning streak with the likes of some of AJ Dillon, Aaron Jones and Randall Cobb under Aaron Rodgers’ wing. However, three of his favorite targets were sidelined during the week 8 fixture.

The NFL can’t get enough of their favorite quarterbacks flourishing after intense scrutiny. And now Cowboys, Cardinals, Rams, Buccaneers, and the Packers are the only teams left with just one loss so far this season.
