Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw down the gauntlet on Tuesday for a “duel” or vaccine “debate” to Chiefs’ player Travis Kelce, who he’s nicknamed “Mr. Pfizer” after the Kansas City player appeared in a Pfizer ad campaign.

During the New York player’s weekly appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show,” the hosts talked to Rodgers about Kelce’s recent comment that “who knew that I would get into the vax wars” with Rodgers while the Chiefs player stood by appearing in the COVID/Flu shot ad for the pharmaceutical company.

“Mr. Pfizer said he didn’t think he’d be in a vax war with me,” the NFL Super Bowl winning QB said. “This ain’t a war homie, this is conversation.”

“But if you want to have some sort of duel, debate, have me on the podcast,” he added, referencing Kelce and his brother Jason Kelce’s popular podcast “New Heights.”

“Come on the show!” Rodgers continued, mentioning McAfee’s show. “Let’s have a conversation. Let’s do it like in ‘John Wick 4,’ so we both have a second, somebody to help us out.”

Rodgers said his second would be independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and said the Kansas City Chiefs’ star could have Dr. Anthony Fauci or “some other pharmocrat.”

During a press conference on Friday, Kelce laughed about the new nickname and told the press it was a “pretty good” one from the all-star QB and made it clear he was “fully comfortable” with being called that.


It came after the Jets QB labeled Taylor Swift’s rumored boyfriend “Mr. Pfizer” following New York’s loss to the Kansas City team.

The NFL MVP took a swipe at Kelce, noting that the Jets’ defense kept the team in the game, despite ultimately falling to the Patrick Mahomes-led squad 23 to 20 during “Sunday Night Football.”

The clip went viral with more than 35 million views and counting at the time of this publication. “Mr. Pfizer” also began trending on X for a brief time.

Rodgers made headlines in 2021 when he was accused of making misleading comments about his vaccination status, saying he was “immunized.” However, it was later revealed that he had not been vaccinated.
