The Green Bay Packers are preparing for a Christmas Day matchup with the Miami Dolphins. This is probably the toughest test for the Packers in the last part of the season. The Dolphins have a high-powered offense but their defense is no joke either. One reason for this is edge rusher, Bradley Chubb. He was acquired from the Denver Broncos midseason and has performed well for Miami. Ahead of the matchup, Bradley Chubb had some strong praise for Aaron Rodgers.

Bradley Chubb On Aaron Rodgers
Chubb recognizes he is playing against one of the greats. In a recent interview he said that when you face Aaron Rodgers, you face greatness. That is some high praise from one of the game’s best edge rushers. With Chubb spending most of his time in the AFC, he has not faced off against Rodgers a lot in his career. However, he clearly has seen the play of Rodgers and recognizes his talent.
Tough Task For Packers On Both Sides Of The Ball
The offensive line will have their work cut out for them with Chubb. David Bakhtiari‘s status is still up in the air so it looks like rookie Zach Tom will suit up again at left tackle. This will be a tough task for him. Rodgers will most likely look to get the ball out quickly and let his speedy receivers, like Christian Watson, make the plays. On the defensive side of the ball, the Packers will have their hands full stopping Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. The Dolphins offense is all about timing so it will be on the defense to disrupt that.
Bradley Chubb’s praise of Aaron Rodgers shows how much respect his play has garnered around the league. Teams understand that they have to play near-perfect defense to stop the offense. Even in a down season, the Packers can burn defenses on the offensive side of the ball thanks to Rodgers’ talent.
