Aaron Rodgers is on a mission, and it won’t end in Jerryworld
The Green Bay Packers, right now, look like the best team in the NFL Playoffs, point blank. But coming into the playoffs, tons of fans and experts alike have been singing the praises of the Dallas Cowboys. Now, this praise isn’t misplaced in any way. The Cowboys were unquestionably the best team in the NFL during the regular season. But any self-respecting player, expert, fan, or anyone else with an interest in sports knows that the playoffs, regardless of the sport, are completely different than the regular season, particularly when it comes to intensity.
Historically, the playoffs are a time when all bets are off because anything can happen. Usually, the “win or get out” conditions of playoffs instills an added bit of motivation that can propel any team to play above their normal ability. The Packers, however, are slightly different. That’s because they possess a deadly combination: they’re already good enough to compete with the best and they have added motivation to their overwhelming ability. At the forefront of the reason why the Packers will outperform the Cowboys in Arlington is none other than the Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Quarterbacks of Rodgers’ caliber come around very rarely. It’s hard to find a quarterback who combines perfect throwing ability with impeccable pocket presence and an ability to stretch plays with his above-average speed. But what truly sets Aaron Rodgers apart is that, when he sets his mind to it, he can outperform anyone and be the sole reason why his team wins.
And that is why the Packers will beat the Cowboys at Cowboys Stadium: the Cowboys’ defense won’t be able to handle Aaron Rodgers and all the weapons he has at his disposal and the wonder duo of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott won’t be able to match Rodgers’ production.
