It's become quite clear this season that the Green Bay Packers' hopes of making the playoffs this season solely rely on the performances of their quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.
They faced a tough matchup against the Seattle Seahawks during Thursday Night Football this week, but the Packers star wasn't going to go down without a fight.
While the majority of his teammates and coaches failed to step up around him, Rodgers demonstrated why he's still one of the best, if not the best, quarterback in the NFL today.
Despite losing the game 27-24, Rodgers did his bit to try and help the Packers win by extending plays with his feet and throwing for big yardage.
The two-time NFL MVP completed 21-of-30 passes for 332 yards and two touchdowns during the Week 11 loss against the Seahawks.
This included two highlight-reel plays that any NFL quarterback would be proud of.
The first came in the first quarter of the game when Rodgers extended the duration of his play with his feet when the pocket around him collapsed, rolling out to the right before throwing it downfield 54 yards for a touchdown to Robert Tonyan.
Later in the game in the fourth quarter, Rodgers connected with Davante Adams on a 57-yard bomb on a 3rd-and-9 play to extend a drive that would end up being a field goal that put the Packers up in the game by four.
The still shot below shows the superb ball placement by Rodgers to make sure Adams caught the ball without any interference from the trailing Seahawks cornerback.
Unfortunately, however, Rodgers' efforts during the game didn't end with a win for the Packers, as he never touched the ball during a key fourth down late in the game when the team was behind.
Green Bay ended up losing the game, but that wasn't because of the efforts by their quarterback, not by a long shot.
Despite the Packers now sitting on a 4-5-1 record after ten games played, Rodgers still has hope for the rest of the season as the team continues to battle for a playoff spot.
He said, according to ESPN: "Of course there's hope. Of course we believe in each other. It's going to take one galvanizing moment.
"Whether that's a speech or at practice or something happens in the game, something's got to get this thing going. I thought we had moments tonight where that was the way we were going."News Now - Sport News
