Aaron Rodgers has had some incredible moments Vs. the Chicago Bears. Over his career he has accumulated an incredible 23-5 record vs Chicago. The biggest win, undoubtedly, came in the 2010 NFC Championship Game that propelled them to Super Bowl XLV. However, Aaron Rodgers’ favorite singular throw of all time came a few years later. 2013 was a whirlwind year for Aaron Rodgers. He broke his collar bone vs Chicago early in the season, only to return in week 17 to win IN Chicago and take the NFC North Crown. The infamous throw on 4th and 8 to seal the victory is one of the most memorable plays in Packers-Bears history. It also turns out to be Rodgers’ favorite throw vs Chicago:
Aaron Rodgers Breaks Down Infamous 4th and 8 Throw:
Aaron Rodgers was hilariously asked “what did you see when Chris Conte wasn’t there? Were you hallucinating? No one has ever been more open in the history of the NFL.” Rodgers’ response was pretty epic:
You have to understand, you have to put it all together. I think people throw blame on Chris or whoever it was on that side. I think Bowman was outside as well… but you guys brought seven, and we blocked with six. So there should have been a free guy. It was really the rush pattern that got you.
Rodgers Later goes on to say:
It was a fun feeling, a really fun feeling. What they should have done is change the call. I knew what their check call was.
