The Packers’ playoff captains, elected by members of the team, are QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson on offense, LB Julius Peppers and S Morgan Burnett on defense, and WR Randall Cobb and DB Jarrett Bush on special teams. The team voted on the playoff captains prior to Week 16’s game in Tampa. Normally, the Packers elect three captains each week and then elect six playoff captains once the postseason begins. The change was designed to send a message of focus and urgency following the tough loss in Buffalo.
