Gridiron Heights, Season 2, Ep. 15: Aaron Rodgers Is Back

A nightmare is close to becoming reality for several NFC playoff hopefuls in this week's edition of Gridiron Heights

Following the Green Bay Packers' overtime comeback win against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium Sunday, starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers may return from a fractured collarbone for a Week 15 showdown at the 9-4 Carolina Panthers. 

The Packers sit at 7-6 and three games back in the NFC North, but winning out may not be enough for Green Bay to qualify for the postseason tournament. Nevertheless, the one-time Super Bowl champion's return to the lineup could understandably terrify other contenders in the conference. 

Discount double-check your backs, wild-card hopefuls. Rodgers is lurking in the shadows with his best John Wick impression.
