“Give some legitimacy to some of the things we’ve been talking about that there was kind of an aberration and that we are a talented football team,” Rodgers said during the post-game interview. It felt like in the locker room today that we finally had the energy that I’ve been waiting to see. And before the game, it wasn’t the type of energy we had in Jacksonville, but I knew we needed a spark.”

Adopting a winning mindset is the first step towards success. And since the spark the Packers needed has been achieved, we can see a lot more such performances from them.

“You know, it felt like that was such a growth moment for us,” Aaron Rodgers further added. “I’m really happy for the guys to feel that and it feels like now we’re on our way, now we can get into this, now we know how to win and we can get this thing moving in the right direction.”

It has been one hell of a start for Aaron Rodgers as, after an undesired loss in the season starter, he was the only person who thought that great things are coming. And that this was the best start for them, so now they can start working in unity, which most certainly paid off.
