Aaron Rodgers Jeopardy Background

  • Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will host 10 episodes of Jeopardy beginning April 5th.
  • Rodgers is coming off his third MVP season and recently got engaged to actress Shailene Woodley.
  • His Packers are third in the oddsboard to win Super Bowl LV at +1200.

Aaron Rodgers’ string of success continues. After having one of his finest NFL seasons ever, Rodgers won his third MVP award. During his MVP speech, he revealed that he’s engaged. Now he’s about to host one of the most popular game shows ever on TV.

It was in 2015 when Rodgers appeared in “Celebrity Jeopardy” and went home the winner. Rodgers beat out Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary and astronaut Mark Kelly to win the $50,000 champions prize. That was a long time ago.

Las November, longtime Jeopardy host Alex Trebek passed away and the show has resorted to using celebrity hosts. Rodgers announced last month that he has been chosen as one of the hosts. Now, it has been revealed that he will be doing a total of 10 episodes beginning April 5.

That’s just a temporary gig though, as Jeopardy will eventually have a full-time host and Rodgers will return to the Green Bay Packers when training camp begins on July 28. Rodgers and the Packers have plenty of unfinished business after they were upset by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2020 NFL playoffs.

Packers’ Odds

The best NFL betting sites have the Packers among the top betting favorites to win Super Bowl LVI. According to BetOnline.ag, Green Bay has the third best odds to win the next Lombardi trophy at +1200. Only the Kansas City Chiefs (+525) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+600), the two teams who played at Super Bowl LV, have shorter odds than the Packers.

That’s not a surprise. Green Bay finished 2020 with a 13-3 record, won the NFC North easily, and was the top seed of the NFC playoffs. They defeated the L.A. Rams in the divisional round before bowing out in the NFC title game against eventual Super Bowl LV winners Tampa Bay. The main reason for Green Bay’s success? Aaron Rodgers.

Three Time MVP

Rodgers had one of the best statistical seasons of his illustrious career last season. He threw for 4,299 passing yards with a career-high 48 touchdowns and only five interceptions while becoming the third player in NFL history to lead the league in passing touchdowns while also throwing the fewest interceptions.

His 121.5 season passer rating was second only to his 2011 campaign when he recorded an NFL record 122.5. He also set a career-high 84.4 Total QBR last season, the third-highest mark in a single season since ESPN began using the metric 15 years ago.

Because of that, Rodgers won his third NFL MVP award, becoming only the 6th player in NFL history to win the Associated Press award at least three times. He did so by taking 44 out of a total 50 media votes, beating out Buffalo’s Josh Allen and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes for the award. Mahomes is favored to win the 2021 NFL MVP award but given Rodgers’ recent string of good fortune, who knows  what else he can achieve next season.
