6) 2009 Week 1 vs. Chicago (21-14 win). This was the day Aaron Rodgers truly came of age as a starting quarterback. A year of solid performances was washed away by defensive failures in 2008, leading to a 6-10 season. On this opening Sunday night, the nation saw Rodgers' poise, leadership and ability to rally a team in the final minutes with a 50-yard game-winning strike to Greg Jennings in the final minutes.
5) 2013 Week 17 at Chicago (33-28 win). Four years later, returning to action after a left collarbone fracture, Rodgers delivered the ultimate clutch performance to carry the Packers to an NFC North title against their archrival in a winner-take-all game on the final day of the season. His day was imperfect in the early going, but down 28-20 in the 4th quarter, Rodgers led two touchdown drives with the latter climaxed by a fourth-down-and-your-season-is-over-if-you-fail 47-yard touchdown bomb to Randall Cobb with 46 seconds left.
4) 2015 Week 13 at Detroit (27-23 win). Most people rightfully remember the first of three Hail Mary throws Rodgers would complete in a 13-month span. But the Motown Miracle was just as much about how Rodgers led Green Bay from a 20-0 deficit that seemed to portend the end of all playoff hopes. Rodgers responded to that despair with four touchdown drives in 21 minutes. Down 23-21, the Packers got the ball back with 29 seconds left. As Rodgers proved - particularly with the help of a face mask call with no time left and that arching bomb to win it - if you give him any time, he can beat you.
3) 2016 Divisional Playoff at Dallas (34-31 win). It's in the postseason where legacies are mostly made. Aaron Rodgers cemented his with a near-perfect day in Arlington, Texas. Rodgers and company exploded to a 21-3 lead before Dallas' offense returned the favor, tying the game in a fourth quarter for the ages which included five scores. The final drive included a pinpoint throw for the ages, a 36-yard sideline strike to Jared Cook with three seconds left to set up Mason Crosby for a 51-yard game-winning field goal to send the Packers to their 8th straight win and the NFC Title Game.
2) 2010 Divisional Playoff at Atlanta (48-21 win). If you solely look at level of domination and not necessarily the stage Aaron Rodgers took, this was his night of brilliance. Against the team with the NFL's best record, on the road, Rodgers dissected the Falcons as if the very bird was being cut up by a college professor for an aviary biology class. He completed 31 of 36 passes for 366 yards, three scores, no interceptions and a passer rating of 136.8. That, to go with a touchdown run, powered the Packers to a win and a berth in the NFC Title Game. 22 days after that night in Atlanta came...
1) Super Bowl XLV vs. Pittsburgh (31-25 win). The crowning achievement of Rodgers' career to date. Rodgers lasered the Steelers' No. 1 ranked defense leading to wows and utterances from WTMJ's Larry McCarren including, "The pass was perfect." Three touchdown passes from Rodgers were perfect. So was an incredible 3rd down conversion on the Packers' final drive that saved the Packers from a very realistic comeback opportunity for "Big Ben" Roethlisberger. Rodgers succeeded in not only winning a Super Bowl MVP, but helping deliver the Packers' 13th world title to Titletown.
