Aaron Rodgers is a good sport
The Green Bay Packers didn’t play a clean game, but they did enough to earn a comeback win over the Miami Dolphins. On Sunday, the Packers had to deal with several injuries and a few early miscues At Hard Rock Stadium. One mistake Aaron Rodgers would love to have back. After the game, he handled an interception with great sportsmanship.
Rodgers threw a deep pass into the endzone in the early fourth quarter that was picked off by Dolphins’ rookie cornerback, Kader Kohou.

The game was tied 20-20 at the time. And the turnover looked like it could swing the momentum back to the Dolphins. However, the Dolphins would give the football right back to Rodgers and the Packers offense after a Tua Tagovailoa interception on their next drive.
According to Josh Moser with WSVN, Kohou asked for Rodgers to sign the ball he intercepted off the future Hall of Fame quarterback. Rodgers wrote “Merry Christmas!” and signed the Ball for Kohou.

That’s a moment Kohou won’t forget. Rodgers will be able to forget the interception after the Packers scored two field goals after the interception. They ultimately beat the Dolphins 26-20 and kept their playoff hopes alive. It was a class act by Rodgers on Christmas Day to sign an intercepted ball for Kohou.
