Aaron Rodgers gets mocked by opposition as he calls Green Bay Packers attack

Aaron Rodgers has hilariously been corrected by a Chicago Bears defensive linesman as he prepared for an offensive drive.

The Green Bay Packers are hosting their old rivals at Lambeau Field and look set to taste victory.

But as the 36-year-old quarterback shouted out "Cleveland" to let his team know which play they were about to run he was corrected by his opposition.

"It's in Ohio," shouted a Bears player who seemed happy to mock Rodgers' geographical error.

The Packer though looks like he will have the last laugh having already connected with Davante Adams for one touchdown.

He also handed the ball off to Aaron Jones on two occasions as the running back found his way to the end zone.

Rodgers and the Packers still have a chance of topping the highly competitive NFC to ensure they gain home field advantage in the play-offs.

A win over the Bears will extend their record to 11-3, but they face competition from Seattle, New Orleans and San Francisco.

Rodgers himself has also faced plenty of criticism from those who no longer consider him an elite quarterback.

He has twice been named the NFL's MVP, but not since 2014, and ESPN broadcaster Mike Greenberg has labelled him as "average" despite previously rating him among the best.

He said: "Maybe I was wrong and they were right because here is the truth – Aaron Rodgers has been an average quarterback for a while now.

"This year his QB rating places him 16th in a 32-team league – that is in between Kyler Murray and Jameis Winston.

"So this is what I want to say – the Packers are in the play-offs and I hope number 12 recaptures the form that made him the best quarterback I've ever seen.

"Because right now, he is a far cry from that."
