Green Bay Packers’ star quarterback Aaron Rodgers cares about winning, even if that doesn’t look pretty on the field. Following a tough 20-15 win against struggling Washington Redskins on Sunday, Rodgers said he doesn’t mind winning ugly if that will get his team to a Super Bowl.
Packers entered the Redskins game as overwhelming favorites, considering that Washington was at 3-9. After two touchdowns in the first quarter, Green Bay’s offense stalled and scored just two field goals for the rest of the game. Redskins attempted a comeback, but the Packs managed to hold them off to go to 10-3 record.
“We’ve got to clean some of that stuff up, but I wouldn’t mind winning ugly all the way to the Super Bowl,” – said Rodgers after the game.
Rodgers finished the game by completing 18 out of 28 passes for 195 yards and one touchdown. This was the third time in last five games that the 36-year-old had below 200 passing yards.
“Winning is the only thing that matters,” – he added. “Even in the midst of some of these games that aren’t great flow the entire time, we are winning. We expect to win games when the defense holds them to less than 20 points.”
With the win against Washington Redskins, Green Bay Packers pulled one game ahead of Minnesota Vikings in NFC North. Packers have three more games left, including a visit to Vikings’ U.S. Bank Stadium in Week 16.
