Over the weekend, the No. 1 seeded Green Bay Packers fell to the San Francisco 49ers in the biggest upset of the weekend.

San Francisco seems to own Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the playoffs. With the loss on Saturday night, Rodgers fell to 0-4 against the 49ers in the playoffs - including an NFC title game loss two years ago.

Following the loss, Rodgers was trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons. Fans flocked to the social media platform to make jokes at Rodgers' expense.

He clearly saw all of the comments from fans and wasn't exactly pleased with the reaction. During his latest appearance on the Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers thinks fans were "rooting against" him due to his vaccination status.

"There were a ton of people rooting against us because of my vaccination status & them wanting to see us lose so they could pile on. we knew this was coming down the pipe at some point," Rodgers said.

Rodgers' vaccination status became a hot topic after he tested positive earlier in the season. Before the season kicked off, he led reporters to believe he was vaccinated - although he never explicitly said he was.

Ever since then, he's taken heat from some in the media and other football fans. A loss in the playoffs as the favorite did him no favors on social media either.
