The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones aired tonight on HBO, and it might have featured a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo appearance by NFL superstar QB Aaron Rodgers.
Viewers think they spotted Rodgers as a Lannister archer or someone who got torched by a dragon. Here are some screencaps of the supposed cameo in question:

Rodgers himself confirmed a while back that he would appear in the fifth episode of Game of Thrones Season 8, so that might indeed be him. His team, the Green Bay Packers, hyped tonight’s episode with a tweet of its own suggesting Rodgers would have a cameo.

Rodgers would be just the latest celebrity to have a cameo in Game of Thrones Season 8. Country music star Chris Stapleton and his bandmates played White Walkers in Episode 3. Showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff appeared in Episode 4 during the dinner scene.
Previous seasons of Game of Thrones have included cameos by musicians like Sigur Ros, members of Mastodon, and Ed Sheeran.
Game of Thrones comes to an end with next week’s series finale–check out a trailer for Episode 6 here.
