NBC’s cameras spotted an Aaron Rodgers lookalike sitting in the stands at Lambeau Field during the network’s telecast of the Packers vs. Bears “Sunday Night Football” game.
The resemblance was uncanny. The fan was decked out in Packers gear and had Rodgers’ infamous long hair and the right amount of facial hair. NBC broadcaster Al Michaels called it the dictionary definition of a “doppelganger.”

Fans couldn’t get enough of this Rodgers “twin” after he made his television appearance. Some fans were calling the fan “Darren Rodgers,” for instance. Even some Bears fans got in on the action, since the Bears were trailing in the second half. The Packers ended up beating their NFC North rival 45-30 after a slow start Sunday night, thanks to the real Rodgers’ four touchdown passes.
