The Green Bay Packers ended their season with a bang.

Rodgers is in the middle of it all.

Even though they were the top seed, the Packers failed to win a single game in the playoffs, which could be considered their greatest failure.

The Packers had a field goal blocked at the end of the first half and a kick return for a touchdown to start the second half.

The worst of it was that. In the fourth quarter, the 49ers blocked a punt and safety Talanoa Hufanga returned it for a touchdown.

As time expired, the Packers had only 10 players on the field for Gould's game-winning field goal.

The questions about Rodgers' future were raised after the 13-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. It is possible that it influenced it.

Does another season without a Super Bowl make Rodgers less likely to return to the Packers next season?

They didn't make it to the Super Bowl. The Packers didn't get there this time after losing back-to-back games.

If Rodgers doesn't say he's going to play in another Super Bowl in Green Bay, those who worry might feel like another Super Bowl is never going to happen for him.

The Packers quarterback said he won't take long to make a decision on his future.

He promised a quick resolution when he spoke last month.

It was promising on Saturday. On the opening drive, the Rodgers- Adams connection was alive and well. They connected three times for 35 yards, and it led to a touchdown, something that happened only three times in 17 regular-season games.

The Packers' offense went nowhere despite being given possession after possession by the defense.

There were six straight drives without a point.

Since the Jordan Love game against the Kansas City Chiefs, their offense has not been so bad. In the season opener, Rodgers and the Packers went eight straight drives without a point and lost to the New Orleans Saints.

The Packers' defense gave Rodgers and Co. plenty of opportunities, thanks to defensive stars like Rashan Gary, who had two sacks and a tackle for loss.

Rodgers failed to throw a touchdown pass in a playoff game for the first time since 2010 against the Chicago Bears. He finished with over 200 yards.

It was similar to last year, when Rodgers was the beneficiary of three turnovers and only scored seven points. Rodgers has a 7-9 record in the playoffs.

It is the first time since the 2010 playoffs that the top two seeds have lost in the divisional round.
