Rodgers expects to stay with the Packers for 2021, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "I don't think that there's any reason why I wouldn't be back, but there's not many absolutes in this business," Rodgers said Tuesday. While an MVP award may not be enough to stop trade rumors, it doesn't sound like 2021 will mark the beginning of the Jordan Love era in Green Bay. Packers CEO Mark Murphy was emphatic earlier this week when a radio host asked him about the QB situation, saying "there's no way in heck Aaron is not gonna be on the Packers," per NFL.com. That doesn't necessarily mean Rodgers will stay with the Packers through the end of his contract in 2023, but he'll likely stay put for at least one more season.
Rodgers completed 33 of 48 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 31-26 loss to the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game. As has been the case for the entirety of the season, Rodgers played at an MVP level and nearly led the Packers back from an 18-point deficit. He hit on several big plays to Marquez Valdes-Scantling, connecting for a 50-yard touchdown early in the second quarter as well as gains of 29 and 24 yards. Rodgers' other two scores came from eight and two yards, respectively. His only glaring error came just before halftime, when he threw an interception that ultimately led to a Buccaneers touchdown. Looking toward the 2021 season, Rodgers remains under contract with the Packers and is likely to return to the team to continue his high level of play.
Rodgers completed 23 of 36 pass attempts for 296 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Packers' divisional-round win over the Rams. He also added a rushing touchdown. Rodgers made the strong Rams' defense look ordinary in the win, completing five pass for more than 20 yards. He regularly extended plays when pressure got through the line, including a 33-yard completion to Robert Tonyan just before halftime. Rodgers also delivered a perfect, game-clinching strike to Allen Lazard over the middle of the field in the fourth quarter for a 58-yard touchdown. He and the Packers will now await their opponent in the NFC Championship Game, but will be hosting either the Saints or Buccaneers at Lambeau Field.
Rodgers completed 19 of 24 passes for 240 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 35-16 win over the Bears. Rodgers threw three touchdowns in the first half and could've had another deep one to start the second if not for a drop. Although Chicago failed to secure a couple would-be interceptions, Rodgers once again got the best of his long-time divisional foe, locking up the NFC's top seed in the process. At 37 years old, Rodgers set a new Packers franchise record with 48 passing touchdowns versus just five interceptions and added another three scores on the ground as well. That massive production will likely earn Rodgers his third career MVP award. The superstar signal-caller will now get a week off before Green Bay hosts a divisional-round playoff game.
Rodgers completed 21 of 25 pass attempts for 231 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 40-14 win over the Titans. He added 19 yards on three carries. Rodgers was in his element on a snowy night at Lambeau Field under the bright lights of Sunday Night Football. While the veteran gunslinger did throw his fifth interception of the season, his four incompletions marked a new low for 2020. The 36-year-old currently sits north of a 70 percent completion rate for the first time in his career while also eclipsing the 4,000-yard mark for the ninth time over 11 full seasons. With 44 touchdowns to the aforementioned five picks, Rodgers has put himself firmly in the MVP discussion. Look for the future Hall of Famer to end the year on a high note as the Packers attempt to lock up the No. 1 seed and a first-round bye when they take on the Bears in Week 17.
