- Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers lost to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Divisional Round on Saturday.
- Rodgers is now 0-4 against the Niners in the postseason.
- Following a loss two years ago, Rodgers bemoaned the fact that the game wasn’t played at Lambeau Field.
Two years ago, following a 37-20 loss in the NFC Championship game to the San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers expressed how much he wished the game was played at Lambeau Field.
Well, because the internet never forgets, those comments have resurfaced following the Packers’ 13-10 loss to the Niners over the weekend and it makes the defeat look all the worse.
“I’ve said this before: we’ve got to get one of these at home,” Rodgers said to reporters following the 2019 NFC Championship game. “It’s a different ball game playing in 20-degree weather, snow, cold, and wind. It’s a different type of game than playing here.”
