The matchup pits MVP favorite Aaron Rodgers against the league's top defense.

Matt LaFleur' s decision to kick a late field goal Sunday with the Packers trailing by eight points was one he immediately came to regret. Then, in an NFC Championship Game that was called loosely and would include just six penalties, a flag came out. The PI gave the Bucs a first down and allowed

The Packers' playoff run came to an end because Aaron Rodgers didn't.

The Green Bay QB's decision-making process seldom comes under fire, but a curious choice not to run for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter of the NFC championship game has many questioning him.

For a third-and-goal from the 11-yard line, Rodgers had — seemingly — a lot of grass to run in for a score, something that he has been wont to do throughout his career. But instead of tucking and running, Rodgers tried forcing a pass to Davante Adams, with the ball hitting the turf. The Packers would net three points on the drive.

It also appears that Rodgers was staring down the middle of the field while looking to throw, so there's a decent chance that he didn't see all the free real estate to his right in the moment.

After the game, Rodgers seemed ambiguous on his future in Packers green and gold, saying that his future was "uncertain" and "unknown," and that he's going to spend time away from the field to sort things out this offseason.

Hopefully the decision not to run won't stick with him when making that decision.
