What We Learned From Round 1 of the N.F.L. Draft

It was a big night for linemen, receivers, and the state of Georgia, but a very quiet one for quarterbacks. In surprising moves, A.J. Brown was traded to the Eagles and the Jets and Giants drafted prudently.

Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson all made decisions that shifted plans around the league and reinforced the value of having a franchise quarterback.

Aaron Rodgers Says He Has a Deal to Stay With the Packers

The quarterback, a four-time N.F.L. most valuable player, had been locked in a conflict with the team over his influence in personnel decisions.

What We Learned in the Divisional Round of the N.F.L. Playoffs

Jimmy Garoppolo screened his way back to a conference championship, the Bengals’ defensive front outshone its stars, and only Kansas City benefited from home-field advantage.

The Uncertain Future for Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay

Rodgers, though likely to win his second straight M.V.P. award, now must contemplate his future with the Green Bay Packers much sooner than he had hoped.

N.F.L. Divisional Round: Our Picks Against the Spread

Green Bay and Tennessee will have the benefit of a week’s rest against San Francisco and Cincinnati. Buffalo and Kansas City will provide tougher tests for each other after coasting last week. The Bucs and the Rams’ veteran quarterbacks will take center stage.

How Week 18 Could Shape the N.F.L. Playoff Picture

In the N.F.C., Green Bay has clinched the bye, but a divisional race and a wild-card spot are still up for grabs. In the A.F.C., things are messier.

NFL Adds Mask Requirement, Increases Covid Testing

After N.F.L. cases more than doubled, the league strengthened its Covid-19 protocols and recommended teams help set up testing for families of players and team staff ahead of the holiday.

The Packers’ Defense Is Their M.V.P.

Green Bay’s defense has become one of the N.F.L.’s toughest despite missing two of its biggest stars. Curiously, the unit’s role in the team’s success has been overshadowed.

N.F.L. Fines Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers for Covid Violations

Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers quarterback who is not vaccinated and has voiced unfounded claims about Covid-19 vaccines, was penalized for not wearing a mask in some places.

Scientists Fight a New Source of Vaccine Misinformation: Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers quarterback, one of the most visible athletes in the country, last week used anti-vaccination rhetoric as his reasoning for not getting vaccinated against Covid-19.

Aaron Rodgers Lashes Out About N.F.L.’s Vaccine Requirements

In a bizarre interview conducted by the quarterback as he isolated because of a positive coronavirus test, he said that he was a victim of a “woke mob” and that he had unsuccessfully petitioned the N.F.L. to accept his alternative to being vaccinated.

Tom Brady Charted a New Path. Aaron Rodgers Struggles to Do the Same.

When Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks like Brady, Rodgers and Russell Wilson grow frustrated with their teams, the nature of N.F.L. contracts makes it hard to scramble away. Brady ultimately succeeded by running out the clock.
