Aaron Rodgers heads into another offseason of uncertainty after one more frustrating finish to a brilliant year.

Rodgers drove the Packers to a touchdown on the game’s opening possession but couldn’t get them back in the end zone the rest of the night as their season ended Saturday night with a stunning 13-10 NFC divisional playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

“I am a little numb for sure," Rodgers said following the game. "I didn’t think it was going to end like this. Disappointed in the offense. 10 points, obviously not enough."

Rodgers completed 20 of his 29 passes, but failed to throw a touchdown for the first time since November 14. He was sacked five times in the loss.

The 38-year-old said the disappointing end to this season could impact his decision on his future in the NFL.

"There’s obviously a lot of decisions to be made," Rodgers said. "There’s a lot of players whose futures are up in the air, so definitely it will be interesting to see which way some of those decisions go, but I’ll have some conversations with Brian (Gutekunst) in the next week or so and get a little bit more clarity and think about my own future and how much longer I want to keep doing this.”

Davante Adams is set to become an unrestricted free agent and Za'Darius Smith could become a cap casualty. With so many players possibly on the way out, Rodgers' future becomes even more uncertain.

"I don’t want to be a part of a rebuild if I’m going to keep playing, so a lot of decisions in the next couple months,” Rodgers said.

A few weeks ago, Rodgers promised to make his decision quickly after the season finished. He said he will take a few weeks to let the dust settle and make a decision before free agency begins in March.
