One of the first things that comes to mind when someone mentions Aaron Rodgers is his insane ability to bring the Packers back from the brink of defeat. Or need we remind you of all the Hail Mary's he's completed the last couple of years. 


However, while his ability to stage comebacks may be the case against some teams, he may not be as clutch as everyone thinks against good ones. 


Sure, Rodgers has plenty of fourth-quarter comebacks to his name, but surprisingly, none of them have come against a winning team. In fact, after Green Bay's loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday night, Rodgers now owns 0-37 career record when he enters the fourth quarter trailing a team with a winning record.

Not exactly what you'd expect from a $134 million quarterback, right? Turns out he's human after all.


Rodgers' inability to come back against winning teams is concerning, but he's not to blame for the Packers' lost season. Green Bay has failed to surround their franchise signal-caller with the right talent to succeed in 2018 and will seriously have to evaluate their roster once the season wraps up.

Maybe, if they give him the right pieces, Rodgers just might get one or two in the win column.
