Aaron Rodgers moves to the NFC Championship, but who will long be joining him?
Rodgers and number one at the Green Bay Packers secured a convincing 32-18 win over the Los Angeles Rams during the NFC Divisional Tour on Saturday. Rodgers and the Packers will now host the winner of Tom Brady’s Buccaneers against Drew Brees’ Saints, which is scheduled for Sunday night.
While Rodgers has admitted he’s still in on mode celebrating a win on Saturday, he shared his excitement about the next challenge.
“To be honest, I still enjoy this. There is a lot of time to think about these things. My initial reaction is that these players are great, awesome.” Rodgers told reporters after the match.
“That would be the case, I don’t know if he will be the oldest, but the combined age of the midfielders at the beginning will definitely be there, competing for the championship,” Rodgers continued. “I’m sure you’ll find out at some point and write something about it, but I’m very happy with our youth, and definitely a little emotional reflection about what we’ve been through. I’m still really happy with everything that happened tonight.”
Rodgers was 23 to 36 and runs 296 yards with three touchdowns (two passes) in the win. It will be the first time Packers have hosted an NFC title game since 2007.
