Last night on Monday Night Football Aaron Rodgers did Aaron Rodgers like things. The reigning NFL MVP had almost a perfect quarterback rating (138.5), threw for five touchdowns and no interceptions for the fourth time in his career, and hasn’t throw an interception at Lambeau field in 19 straight games.
Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFL, even with Tom Brady putting up historic numbers, Rodgers has been better. Consider this, since the start of the 2014 season, Rodgers has thrown a total of 52 touchdowns to only 7 interceptions (playoffs included), not only is Rodgers a touchdown machine, he’s as efficient as any qb in the history of the sport.
While Rodgers play has made some liken him to one of the greatest players in another sport

There’s one facet of his game that still raises doubt in some people’s mind, his 6-5 record in the postseason. However, this year may be different, as Packers fans and Rodgers alike both hope he’s healthy going into this year’s postseason, unlike the previous two years.
It’s probably too early to declare the Packers Super Bowl favorites, or even playoff participants, but if A-God keeps playing at this current pace, another Lombardi trophy could be in Rodgers and the Packers near future.
