In case you forgot, we’re here to remind you: Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a bad, bad man.
Up by seven points in the 4th quarter, Rodgers found his wide receiver, Allen Lazard, for a 58-yard touchdown pass. The touchdown put the Packers up 32-18 on the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Divisional Round and essentially sealed the game.
What makes the miraculous play even better, is the fact that Aaron Rodgers knew he had a touchdown pass awaiting before he even snapped the ball. Prior to the snap, Rodgers gets under center, calls out his cadence, scans the defense and sees what must have been a complete and obvious mismatch on the backend.
So much so, that the future Hall of Fame quarterback almost starts laughing before hiking the ball and throwing the touchdown.
One user on Twitter posted the epic video of Rodgers smirking at the defense before sealing the game.
“This was before the Lazard TD?!?! Imagine being a safety and you see Rodgers staring at you and smirking….” Eric Robinson (@_Eric_Robinson) wrote.
Yeah, we couldn’t imagine being that safety either. Take a look at the video for yourself:
Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay Packers Headed to NFC Championship Game
Aaron Rodgers and the relentless Packers’ offense steamrolled over the Los Angeles Rams 32-18. They are now on their way to the NFC championship game which they will host at Lambeau Field against either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the New Orleans Saints.
With that said, Rodgers will take aim next weekend against one of two future Hall of Famers in their own rights in Drew Brees or Tom Brady. Either way, it will be a terrific game to witness as Rodgers pursues a second Super Bowl title.
“The combined age of the starting quarterbacks will be up there,” Rodgers said after Saturday night’s game. “I just feel so good about everything that happened tonight. We’ll have plenty of time to talk about next week’s opponent after tomorrow.”
Green Bay has gone 28-7 in its first two seasons under head coach MattLaFleur, including 2-1 in the playoffs. The Packers’ offense has looked downright dominant down the stretch this year, reinforcing its regular-season finish as the NFL’s highest-scoring team. Against Los Angeles, they scored on six of their nine possessions, gained 28 first downs, had 484 yards of total offense, and validated the ways in which the 41-year-old LaFleur has modernized the Packers’ offense.
It’s starting to look like the Green Bay Packers kind of year.
