“Last year we didn’t get that good Green Bay weather. Tonight was one of those nights. We haven’t had a game like this in a while temperature-wise. This was different. It is different, the whole feel of it. I feel like teams can break a little bit easier when it is this cold because there’s an excuse – the weather,” Rodgers said after the win over the Vikings.
