Aaron Rodgers was named NFC Offensive Player of the Month and there was no doubt he deserved the honor.
Life just keeps getting better and better for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. After powering the team to a 13-3 record during the regular season, the Packers landed the No. 1 seed in the NFC and will be resting this weekend while everyone else battles it out in the Wild Card Round.
Once Green Bay does get back on the field next weekend, Rodgers will have some added confidence after he was named the NFC Offensive Player of the month for December. After putting up some truly head-turning stats, he was the obvious choice to win it.

Aaron Rodgers’ stats from December are simply unbelievable
Just how good was Rodgers in December? In Green Bay’s four wins, he threw for 959 yards, 11 touchdowns, one interception and had a quarterback rating of 125.3. I mean, come on. Each week, Rodgers made opposing defenses look silly, which has been the case throughout the year.
In the regular season, Rodgers finished with 48 passing touchdowns and only six interceptions. Combine that with him helping the Packers go 13-3 and earning the No. 1 seed, he’s emerged as the clear favorite to take home 2020 MVP honors. At this point, it’d be a robbery if he didn’t win it.
This postseason, Rodgers will have the chance to silence any haters that he might still have out there. When the team selected Jordan Love in the NFL Draft last year, people thought his time as the starter would be coming to a close soon. Instead, Rodgers is playing his best football.
This is terrible news for the rest of the NFL, as the future Hall-of-Fame quarterback looks poised to bring home another Lombardi Trophy.
