Pro Bears NFL Week 15

Dec 22, 2021
Pro Bears Aaron Rodgers and Cameron Jordan were named the NFC's Week 15 Offensive And Defensive Players of the Week on Wednesday.

Aaron Rodgers and Cameron Jordan made it a clean sweep for the NFC's Player of the Week honors for their performances Sunday in Week 15 victories. Rodgers captured the conference's Offensive Player of the Week for the 19th time in his career while Jordan was selected as the Defensive Player of the Week for the third time. Both won the honor for the first time in 2021.

Rodgers captured the offensive award in Green Bay's 31-30 win at Baltimore in which he completed 23-of-31 passes for 268 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions for a 132.2 quarterback rating. Rodgers' three touchdown passes gives him 442 for his career to tie Brett Favre as Green Bay's all-time leader. The victory improved the Packers to 11-3 while helping them hold on to the NFC's top seed for the playoffs. The win also secured Green Bay's third straight NFC North Division crown.

Jordan led New Orleans' defense in a 9-0 shutout of defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay by sacking Tom Brady twice for a loss of 13 yards including a forced fumble on one of the sacks among his five tackles. Jordan also finished with two tackles for loss and three quarterback hits.

Rodgers and Jordan are among 16 former players who finished their collegiate careers at Cal on active NFL rosters with seven of those on teams currently sitting in playoff spots with three weeks remaining in the NFL's 2021 regular season with Rodgers joined on the list by Keenan Allen (Los Angeles Chargers), Stephen Anderson (Los Angeles Chargers), Bryan Anger (Dallas), Camryn Bynum (Minnesota) and Alex Mack (San Francisco).

Anger (NFC East) and Rodgers (NFC North) are on the only two teams currently in sole possession of first place in their Divisions, while Patrick Mekari's Baltimore Ravens are in a tie for first with Cincinnati in the AFC North but not currently in one of the conference's seven playoff spots.
