Did Aaron Rodgers take shot at Russell Wilson with religious reference?
Rodgers, who was 25-of-33 for 249 yards and two touchdowns in the win, spoke to the media after the game and thanked a higher power for the victory.
“God was a Packer fan tonight,” said Rodgers. “He was taking care of us.”
Rodgers was trying to hide a grin as he made his religious references and could barely contain himself.
So why the notion he was taking a shot at Wilson? Remember the sobbing, on-field interview the Seahawks quarterback gave immediately after beating the Packers in the NFC Championship Game in January? Watch this to refresh your memory. Wilson also spoke of God’s impact on that comeback victory with Peter King later in the week, saying "That’s God setting it up, to make it so dramatic, so rewarding, so special."
Rodgers reacted to that comment in an answer to a fan question at the time: "I don’t think God cares a whole lot about the outcome. He cares about the people involved, but I don’t think he’s a big football fan."
As for Sunday night? Yeah, Rodgers seemed to be getting revenge. Just remember, he loves jabbing opposing teams and players in subtle ways like this.
