Beating the Jets gave Green Bay its only road win of the season. Rodgers felt it was important for the future.
“It’s good so young guys get to see what it feels like, what it feels like in the locker room on the road with a win, what the plane ride feels like,” Rodgers said.
“I told the guys before the game, this will be a character game. It will show what kind of pride we have, what kind of mental toughness we have, what we’re willing to lay on the line for our teammates. Obviously, those guys laid it on the line and played really well.
“I like to put my body on the line for my teammates, let them they know I want to be out there. That it matters. That their presence on the field matters as well.
“Hopefully, they saw that this week. They saw us battle. Maybe that sticks with them and means something down the line. We need it.”
