The Green Bay Packers clinched a first-round bye Sunday, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers knows what he wants from his teammates during the off week.

"Don't get COVID," he said following the 35-16 win over the Chicago Bears, according to Ryan Wood of Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Rodgers began the 2020 regular season surrounded by question marks after failing to throw for 30 touchdowns in the previous three seasons and missing the playoffs in two of those campaigns.

However, the nine-time Pro Bowler ends the year as the favorite to take home his third MVP, leading the NFL with 48 touchdowns through the air and a passer rating of 121.5.

"This is a special season. It will always be a special season for me," Rodgers said.

The 37-year-old added the Packers' postgame celebration in Week 17 featured a lot of excitement, with head coach Matt LaFleur taking part.

"I saw a lot of dancing in there, a lot of hugging. Didn't see any tears. I'd probably be the one crying," he said.

"A couple dance moves from LaFleur. I try not to share too much from the locker room, but I do think somebody should ask him to show some of the dance moves he performed."

Meanwhile, LaFleur is looking forward to Green Bay's home-field advantage in the postseason.

"We're happy that the road to Tampa goes through Lambeau," he said.
