Aaron Rodgers can only win if his team helps him out. Signed, seal delivered from the Green Bay Packers defense. 

The Green Bay Packers have been given a chance to earn their spot as the league’s top team. Aaron Rodgers can only do so much to keep his team afloat.

Good thing he spoke to his defense right before the last drive.

After connecting with Davante Adams, the Packers were only down by five. Knowing the team is far from out despite the clock being against him, the veteran quarterback told his defenders to go out there and get a stop.

Thanks to a pair of dropped passes from Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans, Green Bay’s quarterback was given his wish. The first pass was a drop on busted coverage from Kevin King. The second one left Evans’ fingertips and landed in the hands of Jaire Alexander.

When Rodgers wants something, he’ll get it.

Can the Packers complete the comeback

Twice Tom Brady has struggled to connect with Evans. On the drive before, the wind blew opposite of the 43-year-old quarterback, well short and right to Adrian Amos’ arms. The Packers would score on the ensuing drive.

Rodgers never has played a championship game in his own backyard. On the road, it’s been an implosion that never seems to end. In 2014 the Seattle Seahawks found a way to win. In 2016, the Atlanta Falcons looked to be a team of destiny with the MVP Matt Ryan.

And in 2019, the San Francisco 49ers’ rushing attack wasn’t walking out of Levi Stadium with a loss. Rodgers’ legacy has been made on his defense imploding on themselves.

Is the Packers’ defense bad? Yes. Is Alexander literally saving this team from blowing up in the second half? You bet.

Let’s see how this wild and crazy NFC Championship game ends up in the land of the first Super Bowl winners.
