Packers Plan To Start QB Aaron Rodgers in Week 18 Vs. Lions


January 7

The Green Bay Packers plan to start quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, per ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.

Head coach Matt LaFleur told reporters on Friday that Rodgers “wants to play and keep the momentum going” heading into Week 18. Green Bay has already clinched the top seed in the NFC, which means a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the postseason. It is currently unclear what LaFleur plans to do with other starters in the season finale. If Rodgers is indeed pulled out of the game at any point, expect backup quarterback Jordan Love to see some reps to close out the regular season.

Rodgers has completed 68.6 percent of his passes for 3,977 yards, 38 total touchdowns, and four interceptions in 15 games this season.
