There have been no shortage of viral Aaron Rodgers moments during the Green Bay quarterback’s time in the NFL.
Both for off the field exploits and commercials and for his on the field play, Rodgers certainly knows how to make headlines. Thursday’s Week 8 matchup against the Cardinals was no different.
Rodgers took a late hit that was eventually called as roughing the passer against the Cardinals, which resulted in this photo of Rodgers’ reaction to the hit going viral.
Immediately before the hit, Rodgers connected with longtime favorite target Randall Cobb for the first of two touchdowns on the night as the Packers upset the previously undefeated Cardinals 24-21, bringing both teams to 7-1 on the season.
Rodgers caught wind of the meme immediately after the game and praised the internet’s speed and ability to make something go viral. He even seemed to be a fan of the meme, too.
Aaron Rodgers said he’s seen his picture trending on social media: “Man, the internet is undefeated.”

And of course, people had their own creative interpretations and reactions to the meme as well.
And while the meme is rightly making its rounds and generating conversation, so too should the win itself for the Packers.
Green Bay knocked off the NFL’s last remaining undefeated team without its star wide receivers in Davante Adams and Alan Lazard, All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari and defensive coordinator Joe Barry, among others.
Both teams sit at 7-1 and atop their respective divisions.
