After a turbulent couple of weeks, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers returned to the field and led his team to a 17-0 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Rodgers didn’t participate in the Packers’ practice sessions all week and was cleared to play Saturday under the NFL’s protocols for unvaccinated players.

“Good to be back with the guys, good to be back at home, good to be on the field, really,” Rodgers said to reporters in an online press conference via Zoom after the game, allowing him to be unmasked without breaking the league protocols. “The most emotions from the whole night was probably walking off the field after the game. It definitely got me a little misty.”

The drama surrounding Rodgers began when the reigning MVP said he was “immunized” back in August. Following his positive Covid test, Rodgers explained his reasons for searching for alternatives to vaccination and his skepticism about the vaccines’ effectiveness in a podcast show. He later apologized for the misleading statement about his vaccination status.

“There’s always going to be criticism in this world,” Rodgers said. “I don’t define myself by the criticism, but I understand it’s a part of this because this issue is definitely polarizing.”

Meanwhile, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll felt that his team should have maximized their chances to grab the win.

“It’s a big opportunity that we missed out on,” Carroll said. “Just disappointing, because this was a real shot. We could feel it and we knew it.”

Next Sunday, the Seahawks will face the Arizona Cardinals, and the Packers are up against the Minnesota Vikings.
