Aaron Rodgers did more with the less and now, the Green Bay Packers quarterback should be given MVP honors.
As the regular season finished, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is finishing up something as well. One final game against the Chicago Bears should be the closing touches on an MVP resume in 2020.
Rodgers dazzled in Week 17 once more. The 37-year-old went 19-of-24 for 240 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions during Sunday’s 35-16 win over Chicago. On his stats alone, the Packers clinched the top spot for the NFC playoffs.
Rodgers’ resurgence has been well-documented all season, but perhaps fans still don’t understand why he’s the front-runner runner for the hardware. With the four scores, he’ll close the year out with 48 touchdown passes.
JK Scott, the Packers’ punter, was used a total of 46 times this entire season.
The 2020 season defines Aaron Rodgers’ future
The record books will have to be rewritten with No.12 cemented in it. Rodgers’ first touchdown pass to Robert Tonyan made him the first quarterback in league history to have two seasons with at least 45 touchdowns passes. His 72-yard bomb to Marques Valdes-Scantling became the second-longest throw of the season.
His first came with MVS on a 78-yard vertical against the San Francisco 49ers.
“The MVP should be locked up,” Packers wide receiver Devante Adams said after Sunday’s win. “There’s nothing else to really talk about. You look at what we’ve done and what he’s been able to do, and they’ve hit him with everything.”
For the entire offseason, multiple analysts criticized the 2020 NFL Draft class of Green Bay. Instead of building around the present, they looked to the future for Rodgers’ replacement in Jordan Love.
Many doubted Green Bay after failing to have a true No. 1 target in the passing game. On Sunday, Rodgers connected with his 11th-different receiver for a touchdown to secure a 13-3 season and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
No weapons one says? Ask Scott how he feels pretty much having a Sunday off.
