Packers QB Aaron Rodgers speaks out on Steelers matchup in Week 4
It sure looks like Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is excited to host the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lambeau Field in their Week 4 showdown on Sunday.
In his recent appearance on the Pat McAfee show, Rodgers shared his love for the city of Pittsburgh and the team–thanks in large part to the popular Pittsburgh Dad. He also has a ton of respect for head coach Mike Tomlin, whom he called a “fantastic coach” that a lot of players love playing for.

The Steelers are playing poorly as of late, with Mike Tomlin’s men losing two straight games to the Las Vegas Raiders and Cincinnati Bengals. The Week 3 defeats to the Bengals was particularly noteworthy, as starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger struggled to throw the ball downfield and clearly no longer as mobile as he used to be.
Despite Pittsburgh’s recent performances, it’s clear Aaron Rodgers is not taking their game against the Steelers lightly. He specifically pointed out their defense as something that could very well be a threat to the Packers if they don’t step up their game.
It remains to be seen how the Packers’ offense will handle the Steelers’ defense, but Rodgers and Co. have every reason to be confident with the momentum they currently have. Green Bay has won two straight after their anomaly in Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints, beating the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers in thrilling fashion.
