Yes, Aaron Rodgers Does Own The Bears

Green Bay Packers quarterback and infamous Chicago Bears killer, Aaron Rodgers, caused quite the stir in Week 6’s win at Soldier Field when he declared his ownership of the Bears after his fourth-quarter six-yard touchdown run.

Rodgers later explained his comments after the game.

“Sometimes you blackout on the field—in a good way,” he explained. “I looked up in the stands and in the front row all I saw was a woman giving me the double-bird. So I’m not sure exactly what came out of my mouth next.”

Regardless of the reason, Rodgers was right. Sure, maybe it wasn’t the classiest of messages to send to Bears fans forced to watch him rip their hearts out again, but sometimes, the truth hurts. Rodgers owns a 21-5 career record against Chicago and has 57 touchdowns to just 10 interceptions in those games. He’s completed 67% of his passes against the Bears for 6,208 yards and has a career rating of 107.7 against the not-so-Monsters of the Midway.

So, yeah. Rodgers owns the Bears. And the Packers now sit in a comfortable driver’s seat in the NFC North after Sunday’s win. At 5-1, they already own a two-game lead over the Minnesota Vikings and a 2.5-game edge over Chicago.

"I think it shows we will be OK," Packers running back Aaron Jones said of the win Sunday. "It shows we can win games in multiple ways. We have the leaders that we need. We have everybody in the locker room that we need to get the job, just continue to put the work in and stack success."

As long as No. 12 is behind center, the Packers will always be in the hunt for the NFC title when the calendar flips to December. They’re already there now, which is somewhat surprising considering how tumultuous the offseason was. Rodgers isn’t on the same MVP pace he enjoyed in 2020 when he tossed 48 touchdowns, but he’s playing mistake-free football and has amassed 1,436 yards, 12 touchdowns, and just three interceptions through five games.

It seemed for a fleeting moment this summer that Rodgers would never wear the green and gold again. Yet, here we are. Rodgers is still quarterbacking the Packers at a top-shelf level and the Bears remain roadkill on his trek to the playoffs.
