A 20-30 win over NFC South champions, New Orleans Saints, ensured that the Tom Brady-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers would face Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday. In doing so, we now have a mouth-watering face-off between arguably two of the greatest quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen.

Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady will go head-to-head for the second time this season in the NFC Championship game, and we couldn’t we more excited.

Rodgers was terrific in the win over LA Rams last weekend. He went 23 of 36, throwing for 296 yards and two passing touchdowns. He even had 1 rushing touchdown against arguably the best defense in the NFL.

Now, after years of playing in the playoffs, Aaron has been given the opportunity to play his first NFC Championship Game on home soil. But will he get his fairytale ending? Here’s what a certain sports analyst has to say on that.

All eyes on Aaron Rodgers as the Packers aim for Super Bowl glory

Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe were at it again on the latest installment of Undisputed. The former gave his two cents on the Packers vs Buccaneers game while singling out Rodgers for a special mention.

He said, “Aaron Rodgers has 10 times the pressure on him than Brady does this Sunday at Lambeau Field. To your point, this is all Aaron has ever wanted. It took him longer to get here than it’s taken any quarterback in history to get to a home championship game.”

“No one’s played as many games before getting to a home championship game NFC or AFC than Aaron has this Sunday. It’s all he’s ever talked about…it’s been 10 years since Aaron’s played in a Super Bowl… Well, obviously, he now has a chance that very few quarterbacks have,” Bayless said on the show.

Both players are having a gala season, despite being two of the oldest quarterbacks in the league. Tom Brady and Rodgers are hungry for a Championship ring. But in the end, it will all come down to who wants it more, and at this point in time, it’s really hard to tell. Make sure you tune in to catch this game live.
