After the Green Bay Packers comeback win against the Chicago Bears on Sunday night, where Aaron Rodgers left the game with an apparent knee injury only to return and lead the Packers to a historic comeback there was one thing a bit weird after the game. In his post game interview Aaron Rodgers (originally from California) seemed to develop a southern accent. And it left social media confused.
Still can’t figure out Aaron Rodgers’ weird accent. That’s not a Chico accent.

Why did Aaron Rodgers suddenly develop an accent he never had before?

Listen for yourself (Hint: It’s very noticeable when he says “knee”)
Where do you think this accent came from?
