Aaron Rodgers turns 36 this week and is nearing the end of his 15th season in the NFL.

"Yeah, that and seeing the 18th hole coming up, realizing I can't play forever and the opportunities don't come along all the time," Rodgers said.

The Green Bay Packers have missed the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, but they will be playing meaningful games in December and likely January.

Rodgers has repeatedly said that he plans to play into his 40s, but in continuing his golf-as-a-metaphor-for-his career analogy, all he would say he is he's "making the turn, I think."
