Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are currently in the midst of a four-game winning streak that could see them make the NFL playoffs… and there may be a fairly simple off-field explanation for their uptick in form
It has been reported that the superstar quarterback is in a new relationship with an old friend – the 26-year-old daughter of Milwaukee Bucks and Aston Villa owner Wes Edens.
Rodgers, 39, and Mallory Edens have been dating for a while, having previously been pictured at NBA games together in 2019, but now it appears there may be more than just a friendship between the pair.

Sportsgossip.com reports that their relationship has now turned romantic, just months after the Packers superstar broke things off with his former flame, Blu Of Earth.
It was also reported that Edens watched the Packers last game while wearing a Rodgers jersey, despite the couple not being open about their relationship.
Interestingly, Rodgers bought a one-percent stake in the Bucks in 2018, meaning that if the romance is real, he’s dating his business partner’s daughter.
On the field, Rodgers is headed for a big win-and-in the NFL game this weekend, with a victory over the Detroit Lions clinching their spot in the postseason.
Just around the corner in Milwaukee, the Bucks are also having a great season – much to the delight of Mallory’s father, owner Wes Edens.

Rodgers is no stranger to high-profile relationships, having previously been engaged to ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ actress Shailene Woodley, before they called it quits in April 2022.
He was rumored to be in a relationship with podcaster and social media influencer Blu of Earth, real name Charlotte Brereton, with the pair first linked in June 2022.
They were spotted with matching tattoos shortly after, but their whirlwind romance reportedly ended last month, with Blu currently stuck in Peru amid political turmoil.
Posting on Instagram, he wrote ‘in challenging times like these, those who come out in support are the real MVPs,’ which some say is a dig at Rodgers – who was voted the NFL’s MVP in past two seasons.
Meanwhile, on the field this season, Green Bay looked out of the postseason picture after a Week 12 loss to the Eagles, but the defense has stiffened over the last four contests as the Packers have revived their season.

And the eclectic Rodgers believes off-field influences are to thank for the team’s uptick in form.
‘I believe in the power of showing up and I believe in momentum and I really believe in the power of the mind,’ he said after last week’s 41-17 win over the Vikings.
‘And when you start believing in something so much, some miraculous things can happen.’
Rodgers, who has already thrown his most interceptions in a season since 2010, has also been public about his use of ayahuasca in the past – and its apparent positive effect on his play.

Ayahuasca is a South American psychoactive brew used in shamanic spiritual medicine
The South American hallucinogenic tea is touted as an alternative treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression, with shamans considering the psychedelic a ‘wisdom’ plant that allows entry into the spiritual world. .
‘I did ayahuasca in 2020 and I won two MVPs,’ Rodgers told Fox Sports in September. I don’t believe it’s a coincidence. I don’t really believe in coincidences.
“I believe in science and timing, and I really feel that what has allowed me to do is have more love for the game that I play, more love for my teammates and maybe I had the best season of my career in 2020 and then followed last year with a greater integration of many of those lessons.’
