There was nothing Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers could do on Sunday but watch as his defense allowed Vikings All-Pro receiver Justin Jefferson to go absolutely crazy. The former LSU Tiger caught nine passes for 184 receiving yards and two touchdowns en route to a 23-7 Vikings victory.
Rodgers approached Jefferson after the game, gave him a hug, and told him he was the best player on the field. Jefferson has been on a tear through his first 2+ seasons in the NFL, holding the NFL record for most receiving yards through a player’s first two seasons in NFL history (3,016).
On The Pat McAfee Show Tuesday, Rodgers spoke about a familiar player who Jefferson reminds him of.
“A lot of his release stuff looks pretty similar to 17 (Davante Adams). He was the difference-maker for the entire game”.
