1. Rodgers is one of the best for a reason

When the time comes down the road, and he decides to call it a career by retiring, Rodgers will most likely earn his spot in Canton one day when looking at the numbers he’s managed to put up throughout his career. Moving on from another quarterback great in Brett Favre many years ago was one of the toughest decisions Green Bay ever had to made, but when looking at how everything with Rodgers has played out, this was all worth it.

As mentioned before, this season has been a bumpy ride at times for the Packers with their 3-2-1 record heading into Sunday’s game, but at least Rodgers and his teammates may have an upper hand from having an extra week off as a result of the bye. When looking at all of the injuries Green Bay has been dealing with in recent weeks, including Rodgers himself, the bye week couldn’t have come at a better time since a game like Sunday will consist of them needing all the extra help they can get.

With his competitive mindset, there’s nothing Rodgers would love more than to hand the Rams their first loss of 2018 while putting the Packers in much better shape heading into the second half of the regular season. Defeating Los Angeles on the road certainly won’t be easy, but also these situations are nothing new for a quarterback like Rodgers since he’s pulled off numerous wins like this before.
