Aaron Rodgers owns the Chicago Bears.
At least, that’s what he told Bears fans after scoring the game-sealing touchdown on Sunday.
With a 22-5 career record against the Bears, he’s not wrong.
The Green Bay Packers may be the only publicly owned team in football, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers is diversifying his investments.
With just over four minutes left in Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, Rodgers scrambled for a six-yard rushing touchdown to put the Packers ahead 24-14, all but sealing the win for visiting Green Bay.
As boos rained down from the Chicago crowd, Rodgers jeered in response, which was caught on camera by the broadcast.
“All my f—ing life, I own you,” Rodgers shouted as his teammates surrounded him in the end zone. “I still own you. I still own you.”
After the game, Rodgers joked about his comment.
“Sometimes you black out on the field,” Rodgers said when asked what prompted his claim of ownership. “In a good way.
“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.”
“Ownership” is a bold claim for any player to make, but it’s hard to argue with Rodgers here.
In 26 career meetings, Rodgers in 21-5 against Chicago in the regular season, throwing 57 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions against his division rivals. Rodgers also won the 2010 NFC title game against the Bears in Chicago, en route to winning the Super Bowl.
The Packers have now won five straight games against the Bears and 11 of their past 12 meetings. The Bears have not won consecutive games against the Packers since 2007.
If this is a rivalry, the Bears are not holding up their end of the bargain.
