GREEN BAY (WKOW) — Fresh of a 31-13 drubbing of the New York Giants Sunday, Aaron Rodgers gets to take the traditional Monday off by celebrating a birthday.
The Packers quarterback turns 36 today. He was born Dec. 2, 1983 in Chico, California.
Rodgers threw four touchdown passes in the snow and the Green Bay Packers rebounded from their loss a week earlier to the San Francisco 49ers.
The Packers sent the Giants to their eighth straight loss, their worst skid since 2004.
Rodgers finished 21 of 33 for 243 yards with no interceptions on a slippery, snowy day at MetLife Stadium. Rodgers hit Davante Adams on touchdown passes of 8 and 17 yards, found a wide-open Allen Lazard for 37 yards and capped the performance with a 1-yarder to Marcedes Lewis.
A light snow started falling before game time and it quickly covered the field, forcing work crews to shovel the yardage lines during breaks. It also made it look like Wisconsin, and the Packers had no problem in beating New York for the third straight time.
The last time was in the NFC wild-card game in January 2017. Rodgers also threw four touchdown passes in that one, a game that started New York on a three-year run that has seen it win 10 games and change coaches and general managers.
Rodgers girlfriend, racecar driver Danica Patrick, shared her birthday wishes on Instagram.
