Aidan Hutchinson and the Detroit Lions pulled off a surprising victory over the Green Bay Packers recently.
Rather than give the winning side their due credit, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers decided to lob a shot at them.
“We can’t lose a game like that against that team, though,” Rodgers said during his postgame session with the media.
A key contributor to Detroit’s win was rookie defensive end Aidan Hutchinson. He intercepted Rodgers in the red zone during the game – officially sealing the deal for his side.
On Wednesday Aidan’s mom, Melissa, took to Instagram and fired a shot right back at Rodgers:

“A winning weekend of gold and cold moves…even Aaron Rodgers was smiling,” she wrote in the caption.
You love to see it.
Aidan has had a strong rookie year so far, recording 20 tackles, 4.5 sacks, three tackles for loss, 14 QB pressures and one interception over the course of eight outings. He has been arguably the second best defensive player from his class, after Travon Walker.
That said, his family has really stolen the show this year. Between his mom going viral over her provocative photos and his sister’s wild beach day pictures causing a stir – it has been one thing after another for the whole Hutchinson clan.
As for Rodgers, him catching shrapnel like this is unsurprising. He has had a rough year. When you consider the suspicious photos of him that leaked out, the drug rumors and chatter and what his new girlfriend posted on social media and then immediately deleted, he has experienced arguably the most turbulent season of his career in 2022. And it doesn’t look like things will improve any time soon.

The Lions obviously had a weird situation unfold last week with one of their fans taking inappropriate photos of cheerleaders. But aside from that, Detroit looked very strong against the Packers.
Will the team be able to build on that momentum and finish out the 2022-23 season strong?
Time will tell.
