Under the leadership of the reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers silenced their critics with a dominating performance against the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football.

The Packers crushed the Lions 35-17 at Lambeau Field, where Rodgers threw four touchdown passes and went 22 of 27 for 255 yards.

Rodgers was aware of what the people had said about him after the loss against New Orleans.

“I think we maybe tried to show that we cared a little bit more tonight,” Rodgers told reporters. “I just think people like to say a lot of s—, and it’s nice to come back in here after a game like that.”

The 37-year-old veteran was glad he could deliver for the fans and reduce the outside noise from “the trolls.”

“I think that there’s, even more now than when I started playing, there’s so many overreactions that happen on a week-to-week basis,” Rodgers said. “So it’s nice to come out and have a good performance and get the trolls off our back for at least a week.”

Meanwhile, Rodgers’ Lions counterpart, Jared Goff, who completed 13 out of his first 14 passes and recorded 26 of 36 for 246 yards, felt the game was just not in their favor.

“We just kind of kept shooting ourselves in the foot there,” Goff said.

Next up, the Packers will travel to face the San Francisco 49ers, while Detroit returns to Ford Field to host the Baltimore Ravens.
