(WNFL) - Aaron Rodgers raised some eyebrows when he said after the Packers' win at Minnesota quote, "I wasn't going to let this team beat us." On his weekly E-S-P-N-Milwaukee radio show yesterday, the Packers' quarterback said there was no ulterior motive or hidden agenda behind that remark. He said he just wanted to regain first place in the N-F-C North, which Detroit had grabbed back with a last-second win over Dallas earlier on Sunday. Rodgers said it's important to win division games on the road and quote, "I had the feeling that if I could just do my job, get us in good plays, get us in good checks, that we were going to win that game." Rodgers said he knew he'd have a big role and he did, throwing for a pair of touchdowns and completing 10-of-10 passes on third down to keep drives alive. Rodgers also denied that his urgency to beat the Vikings was related to the negative comments his former teammate Greg Jennings said after he signed with Minnesota. He again refused to say what he told Jennings after the game, saying there are things between players which should be kept private. And Rodgers repeated quote, "There's too much access to the field." The Packers are now 5-and-2 with a half-game lead over Detroit in the North Division. The Pack will host third-place Chicago on Monday night.
