The question was a reference to the Green Bay Packers' fatal decision to kick a field goal, down by eight, with two minutes remaining in the NFC Championship. Though the field goal cut the lead to five points, Rodgers and the Packers never got the ball back, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made it to the Super Bowl.

Rodgers put his head down in silence, nodded, then said, "That is a great question," before regaining his composure.

Rodgers' answer in January, after the game, wasn't much different. He stopped short of blaming the decision on head coach Matt LeFleur, but also suggested he would have put the ball in his own hands to attempt a game-tying touchdown and two-point conversion.

Rodgers' turn as host begins at 7 P.M. ET on Monday.
