Aaron Rodgers savored the moment he returned to Lambeau Field after missing last week’s Green Bay Packers game with COVID-19 and admitted he was a bit "misty-eyed" as he was greeted with cheers.

Rodgers was 23-for-37 with 292 passing yards and an interception. The Packers got two rushing touchdowns from A.J. Dillon and Green Bay defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 17-0.

"I just don't take these things for granted, walking off the field as a winner. Just walking out with Preston [Smith], who I have so much love and appreciation for, and then hearing that type of response from the crowd, it was a little extra special today," Rodgers said, via the Packers’ website.

Rodgers created a firestorm with his explanation for being unvaccinated and his reasoning for seeking homeopathic treatments to be "immunized" instead of vaccinated against the coronavirus. He said on his last "Pat McAfee Show" appearance he took responsibility for misleading people.
