Aaron Rodgers did his best to cater to Spanish-speaking Packers fans after Monday night's big win.
The Green Bay quarterback was approached by John Sutcliffe of ESPN Deportes after the Packers (and the refs) defeated the Detroit Lions 23-22 on 'Monday Night Football.' Sutcliffe, in both Spanish and English, asked Rodgers about his teammates and the idea that "a group of good people makes a great team."
In response, Rodgers decided to show off his Spanish-speaking skills:

Though his statement en español came out somewhat broken, fans seemed to appreciate the quarterback's effort. Many responses to the video, which was posted to the ESPN Deportes Twitter account, were positive, with users on the social media platform calling Rodgers a "great guy" and saying they were "excited" to hear him speaking in Spanish.
The quarterback certainly had a much smoother response to Sutcliffe's questions than Odell Beckham Jr. did in Week 2. The Cleveland Browns receiver was noticeably – and comically – shocked when Sutcliffe began speaking to him in Spanish, but he was able to react appropriately when the questions were repeated in English.
The controversial win over the Lions put the Packers in sole possession of first place in the NFC North. Green Bay will next host the Oakland Raiders this Sunday in Week 7.
