Aaron Rodgers gave Mike Pettine a huge congratulatory shove after stellar opener

Aaron Rodgers Mike Pettine

The Green Bay Packers’ defense looked awesome on Thursday night, and nobody was happier about it than Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers celebrated the Packers defense clinching the 10-3 win over the Chicago Bears by giving defensive coordinator Mike Pettine a huge shove. The shove was done in a congratulatory way, demonstrating how impressed Rodgers was.

Other Packers players also recognized what Pettine had done:

Rodgers continued his approval during his interview with NBC’s Michele Tafoya after the game.

“We got a defense,” Rodgers said twice.

The Packers haven’t had a top-10 defense since 2010, the season they won the Super Bowl. You can see the excitement and relief in Rodgers’ eyes over having a defense that can help them win games.

Now that they’ve got their defense squared away, the Packers need to figure out their offense, because that was lacking on Thursday night.
