Aaron Rodgers was the star of the show again as he led the Green Bay Packers to yet another comeback win and this time it was against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night at the Lambeau Field.

The Packers were not at their best, but their quarterback made the difference when needed, first a game tying touchdown pass to Devante Adams with just under two minutes remaining made it 30-30. Rodgers followed it up with a drive that helped Mason Crosby score the game winning field goal.

The Packers got the ball back in their own 10-yard line with just over a minute to go and the score tied. Rodgers led the drive down the field that allowed Crosby to score a 27-yard field goal to earn them a 33-30 win — their third of the season.

Rodgers completed 25 of 46 passes on the night for 425 yards to make it his second consecutive game where he has piled up 400+ yards. He made it 12 touchdown passes in six games, but remains at just one interception.

The Packers quarterback has struggled with a knee injury since the opening game of the campaign. He suffered a setback last week and was back on the brace for the game against the 49ers.

Rodgers admitted he was thinking of overtime when they got the ball back with just over a minute to go, but his drive eventually allowed Crosby to get the win with a field goal. The Packers now have a bye week with their next game against the Los Angeles Rams coming after almost two weeks on Oct. 28.

 “Overtime actually,” Rodgers said immediately after the Packers’ win on Monday night, as per the Express. “We had faith in Mason from anywhere tonight, like we always do, but to get him even closer made that kick almost certain. ... Its rest first (in the bye week) then we’ll look at our schedule. It gets really tough.”

The quarterback is keen to take the knee brace off after the bye week, but admits it is a day-to-day process. Rodgers is hoping that he will be able to play without a brace when practice comes around Oct. 24.

“I told the doc I’d love to take the brace off after the bye week, but we’ll see how I respond tomorrow, this week and next week,” the Packers quarterback said during the post-game press conference talking about his knee injury. “Probably get some sort of image of it again. But that would be nice to be feeling great come next week Wednesday.” 

Rodgers’ game tying touchdown pass and game-winning drive against the 49ers elicited some phenomenal reactions with ESPN’s Stephen A Smith even going as far as to say Rodgers is the “best QB I’ve ever seen in my life.”

“This man @AaronRodgers12 is just so damn special, it’s hard to put into words. I don’t give a damn what anyone says: he is the BEST QB I’ve ever seen in my life. He’s just that GREAT! I don’t even what to hear anyone anymore about this. I really don’t!” Smith wrote on his official Twitter account in the immediate aftermath of the game.
