Ndamukong Suh joined NFC South franchise Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2019 after ending a one-year stay with Los Angeles Rams. The five-time Pro Bowler made a name for himself during his initial four-year stint with Detroit Lions. One of the highlights during his tenure with the Lions was his on-field rivalry with Green Bay Packers veteran Aaron Rodgers.

The pair faced-off on multiple occasions during the last decade. Their tussles on the football field were always the subject of interest from the media. After almost 10 years since they first faced off in 2010, that healthy professional rivalry still remains.

Ndamukong Suh fires shots at Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers

The Buccaneers made their way to a narrow 26-31 win over the Packers in the NFC Championship game a couple of weeks ago. This was their second win over the NFC North champions this season.

Ndamukong Suh made sure to point that out when he appeared in a recent interview. When asked the question ‘Who is the favorite quarterback you like to play against – Tom Brady or someone else?’, Ndamukong had a quick and blunt reply.

“In the moment, going against him, without question…Truthfully, Brady’s always great to hit when I’m going against him, when we’re not on the same team but Aaron Rodgers even more. It’s always a pleasure to get after him and frustrate him as we’ve been able to do twice this year,” Suh said on the podcast.

Despite a dismal end to their 2020 NFL campaign, Rodgers remains in contention for this year’s league MVP award. He is running against Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

The 2018 NFL MVP is hoping to win his second-straight Super Bowl win on Sunday night against the Buccaneers. But there is one man who stands in his way, six-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady. If there’s one thing that Brady knows a thing or two about, it’s the Super Bowl. You cannot afford to miss out on this one!
