Aaron Rodgers said he likes playing in Soldier Field. Why would he not?

The Packers fullback is there 9-3, including wins in eight of the last nine games, and has yielded 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

“It will always be a battle in that stadium,” Rodgers said via Mark Potash of the Chicago Sun-Times. ‘Everything from the grass other than hearing their beloved son sing the national anthem so many times, and the crowd is absolutely crazy. That tingle has made a special environment over the years, and I have a lot of respect for the organization, the fan base, and their team. And I’m excited about the test this week. ”

This time, however, the Bears will not have a full soldier field to help them against their hated rival. Chicago needs a win to reach the playoffs, while the Packers play for the No. 1 series.

“It’s definitely going to be more fun with fans there,” Rodgers said. “I appreciate the fans. It is a wonderful sports town. I really enjoyed playing there over the years. ”

Rodgers is 20-4 against the Bears in games he starts and ends. Since 1992, with Brett Favre and Rodgers at the helm of the Packers, Green Bay has played 41-15 against the Bears.

The Packers beat the Bears 41-25 in Week 12 at Lambeau Field.

“I don’t think you need to add extra motivation to this game,” Rodgers said. ‘There’s a lot at stake for both groups. We had them behind us a few weeks ago. They have played much better since then. And we know what kind of game it’s going to be. ”
