The Green Bay Packers kept their playoff hopes alive on Monday Night with their win against the Rams. With a final score of 24-12, the Packers moved to 6-8 on the season. A major piece of that victory was the contributions of Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs. Aaron Rodgers’ stats, while those two were on the field, were absolutely absurd on Monday Night.
Aaron Rodgers’ Stats With Christian Watson And Romeo Doubs
Per ESPNStatsInfo: Rodgers went 7-of-7 for 91 yards with both Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs on the field Monday. For the season he is now 20-of-24 with both on the field this season. Against the Rams Romeo Doubs in total finished with 5 catches, and 55 yards on 5 targets. Watson finished with 4 catches, and 46 yards on 6 targets.
The future certainly seems bright with these two being the focus of the wide receiving corps. This type of potential is what could bring Aaron Rodgers back for the 2023 season. Rodgers has already mentioned that the rookie wide receivers could impact his decision in the future.
Will Aaron Rodgers Be Back In 2023?
Rodgers addressed this very topic earlier this season:
Listen to what Rodgers says at the end of this clip. I read that as “I want to come back, but I’m not certain they’ll want me back.” Maybe I’m wrong. https://t.co/Ut8rIbWxFq

What Schneidman is referring to is when Rodgers says, “It will all factor into it, but there’s got to be mutual interst from both sides.” In other words, there has to be mutual interest from both Rodgers and the Packers for his return in 2023. It seems hard to believe the Packers wouldn’t want to bring back the four-time MVP even after a down year in 2022. The emergence of Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs could set this team up for a successful offense in 2023.
