But, the Cheeseheads had a joyful holiday after their team beat the Dolphins 26-20.

Rodgers in particular may not want to speak about a throw that got picked off in the fourth quarter. But surprisingly, the QB was in good spirits and gave a gift to the rookie who intercepted the ball. So what did Rodgers do?
