After years in the NFC with the Green Bay Packers, Rodgers is now in the same division as Tagovailoa. The native Hawaiian beat Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen last season, but now he will have an opportunity to take down a former Super Bowl champion. 

The matchup will be at 2:00 p.m. CT on Prime Video.
