Without major offseason moves to bolster their wide receiving corps, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has relied on star wideout Davante Adams more than ever in 2020. Adams has certainly risen to the occasion, helping Rodgers be one of the MVP favorites while solidifying his status as one of the best at his position.

Rodgers' respect and admiration for Adams runs deep, extending beyond just the wideout's impressive play.

Rodgers is particularly appreciative of how Adams carries himself and competes like few others. It's no surprise that a star duo like this succeeds given how close they seem to be.

I have so much love and respect for him as a person — how he carries himself, his demeanor, his competitiveness, his focus, the plays that he makes on the field, the way that he communicates with me, the respect that he shows me, the respect that he earns from myself and our team every single day. He is one of a kind.

The 2020 season will be one of Rodgers' best. He currently leads the league with 36 passing touchdowns (compared to just 4 INTs) and is sixth in yards with 3,395.

For Adams, 2020 will likely be considered a career year. He leads the league in receiving touchdowns (13), yards per game (102.9) and is fourth in receptions (84).

The play of Rodgers and Adams has the team at 9-3 and poised to make noise in the playoffs with a quarterback-receiver tandem that is almost impossible to stop. They will face the Detroit Lions in Week 14 and are 7.5-point road favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
