Most NFL teams have trouble moving the ball through the air in cold and snowy conditions. But most teams don’t have Aaron Rodgers as their quarterback.
Rodgers put in a dominant performance in snowy weather, leading the Green Bay Packers to an easy 40-14 win over the Tennessee Titans at Lambeau Field on Sunday night.
Rodgers connected on 21 of 25 passes for 231 yards and four touchdowns, helping the team improve to 12-3 on the year and making him the clear-cut favorite to win the NFL MVP award this year.
While many figured that the running attack of the Titans and their bulldozer running back Derrick Henry would have the advantage in these conditions, Green Bay went about business as usual with Rodgers at the helm. The veteran quarterback connected with his favorite target Davante Adams 11 times for 142 yards and three touchdowns.
What makes Rodgers’ performance this year even more special is that he seems to continue to win in spite of his team and detractors. While some inexplicably sought to write him off this year, the quarterback has done nothing but win and put up ridiculous numbers in the process.
The Packers have already clinched a playoff spot by winning the NFC North but can secure the top seed in the NFC and a first-round bye with a win in their final regular-season game next week against the divisional rival Chicago Bears.
