This team has won just two championships in the past 30 years despite having two of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. 

Who are the Green Bay Packers. 

We doubt that will be one of the answers Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers reads when he hosts "Jeopardy!" for ten episodes beginning April 5, but we wouldn't be doing our readers justice without taking a cheap shot at the Vikings' border rival. 

Rodgers has appeared as a contestant on the show a couple times, and now he'll host ten episodes: Monday to Friday the weeks of April 5 and April 12.

Ken Jennings, perhaps the greatest player in the show's history, guest-hosted the first two weeks after the show resumed filming following the death of longtime host Alex Trebek. TV stars Katie Couric did the next two weeks, followed by Dr. Oz. 

Future hosts include CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, Mayim Bialik of The Big Bang Theory, and Today host Savannah Guthrie. 

In January, Rodgers called Trebek "one of my idols growing up." 

Trebek died of pancreatic cancer Nov. 8, 2020. He was 80 years old.
