Aaron Rodgers Gives Daniel Jones Simple Advice After Packers Beat Giants

Aaron Rodgers had some big shoes to fill when he took over for legendary Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre in 2008.

So the 12-season veteran knows just what young Daniel Jones is facing after replacing Eli Manning on the New York Giants.

The Packers beat the Giants 31-13 in a snowy game Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium, handing New York its eighth straight loss and dropping it to a measly 2-10 record. Rodgers completed 21 of his 33 pass attempts for 243 yards and a whopping four touchdowns, while Jones went 20-for-37 for 240 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

After the game, Rodgers shared some simple advice with the 22-year-old rookie.

“Hang in there, brother — long career, right?,” Rodgers said, via the Giants. “Learn from these days, and the good ones too.”
