That sparked an unspoken quarterback competition to see which passers can knock back brews in one go.
It started with Matthew Stafford, whose wife posted a video on Instagram of the Lions quarterback downing a beer with the hashtag #kingofthenorth.

Last week, Mitchell Trubisky joined in on the fun when the Bears spent an afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field to take in a White Sox game.
At organized team activities this week, Rodgers finally took the opportunity to fire back.

"For some of them, there's finally a talent where they can say they are better than me," Rodgers said.
The Packers quarterback is resting on his 63 percent career win rate, but Bears fans are quick to point to Week 15 last year when Trubisky had the upper hand.
The off-field rivalry continues as both sides gear up for the real battle to kickoff the 2019 NFL season on September 5.
