Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had an epic response to the jeering fans of the Chicago Bears, as he rushed into the end zone for a 6-yard touchdown during Sunday’s 24-14 victory at Soldier Field;

“All my f—ing life, I own you,” Rodgers shouted at Bears fans in the stands during the ensuing touchdown celebration. “I still own you. I still own you.”

The win marked the 22nd for Rodgers over the Bears, including the playoffs, during his career and improved his record to 22-5 against Chicago, which gave him the third-best winning percentage (.815) by a quarterback against a single opponent since 1950, with a minimum of 25 starts, according to ESPN.

“I looked up in the stands and in the front row all I saw was a woman giving me the double bird,” Rodgers said. “So I’m not sure exactly what came out of my mouth next.”

“Listen, all I can say is: A lot of stuff gets said on the field that nobody ever hears,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said. “It’s one of those moments of competition where things get said and … I don’t know what Aaron said about it, I’m sure you guys asked him. … Again, it’s a competitive game, and I think that’s one of those moments where you see the competitor in Aaron come out.”

“I love playing at Soldier Field,” Rodgers said. “I said this week, I have a lot of respect for the fans. I’m sure there’s a little bit of respect coming back my way, not a lot of love, I’m sure.”
