The Green Bay Packers struggled to get the job done without quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the team’s lone performance without having him in the lineup in week nine of the 2021 NFL season. The team was limited to just a single scoring drive in their 13-7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Rodgers made a triumphant return to the Packers’ lineup in Week 10 as Green Bay managed to shut out the Seattle Seahawks with 17-0 being the final score.

“A lot of emotions for sure,” Rodgers told reporters after the win over the Seahawks. “Good to be back with the guys, good to be back at home, good to be on the field, really. The most emotions from the whole night was probably walking off the field after the game. It definitely got me a little misty. It was good to feel those types of emotions and good to be back with the guys.”

It wasn’t the best performance of Rodgers’ career by any stretch, but he managed to get the job done nonetheless. He racked up 292 passing yards and threw a pick but didn’t find the end-zone. However, it was enough to get a victory over a tough NFC opponent in the Seahawks.

 “I just don’t take these things for granted, walking off the field as a winner. It’s fun beating that squad. We’ve had some battles over the years. Just walking out with [teammate] Preston [Smith], who I have so much love and appreciation for, and then hearing that type of response from the crowd — it was a little extra special today.”

For the Packers, getting a victory was of utmost importance to solidify their efforts to win the NFC. Aaron Rodgers managed to shake off some rust after a 10-day absence and will be able to better establish a rhythm going forward.

“I’m happy; I’m just so tired,” Rodgers said. “It’s been a long, long 10 days. … I felt great on the field, but it’s been a couple weeks since I’ve been out there playing. So it was fun to be back out there, and I’m excited for our guys, I really am.”

Now holding an 8-2 record, the Packers sit atop the NFC standings with the Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys each close behind sitting with just two losses.
