Surprise for Rodgers on ‘Jeopardy’


Packers quarterbac­k Aaron Rodgers got quite the surprise in his first episode as a guest host of “Jeopardy!” Contestant Scott Shewfelt was stumped on the final question of the episode that aired Monday. He decided to reply by referencin­g a controvers­ial Packers strategic decision in last season’s NFC championsh­ip game as he wrote, “Who wanted to kick that field goal?” The Packers trailed the Buccaneers 31-23 and had fourth-and-goal at the 8-yard line with just over two minutes when Packers coach Matt LaFleur opted to kick a field goal rather than going for the touchdown. Mason Crosby made the field goal, but the Bucs took the kickoff and maintained possession the rest of the way to win 31-26. When Shewfelt’s question appeared on the screen, Rodgers paused before saying, “That is a great question. It should be correct, but unfortunat­ely for this game today, it’s incorrect.” The “Jeopardy!” Rodgers is hosting “Jeopardy!” for the next two weeks as the show goes through a series of guest hosts to replace Alex Trebek, who died of cancer Nov. 8.
