It’s been a gritty month of playoffs in the NFL, and the wives and girlfriends of standout players are acknowledging just that.
On Sunday, January 22, it was determined that the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons will advance next month to Super Bowl LI, but that didn’t stop Olivia Munn from expressing support for her boyfriend, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The Newsroom actress shared a handwritten letter intended for Rodgers’ fans and critics (including possibly his estranged family). “So proud of this team,” she wrote. “They faced a lot of adversity on and off the field, but battled to get this far. THANK YOU to those of you who encouraged and supported them by choosing to put out only positive energy. It helped them get this far.”
The weekend before, Grammy winner Ciara also witnessed her husband, Russell Wilson, fall to the Falcons. “No Greater Blessing Than Having Family,” she wrote on Instagram despite the disappointment. “We’re Proud Of You @Dangerusswilson ❤.”

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara, who married mega Pittsburgh Steelers fan Joe Manganiello in December 2015, showed support for her husband’s team by attending the AFC Championship Game on Sunday. “#HereWeGo #thegoodwife😬✨✨✨,” TV’s highest-paid actress captioned a selfie of herself all bundled up.
Then there was Gisele Bundchen, whose husband, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, helped steer the team to victory on Sunday night. The world’s top supermodel shared a sweet photo of herself posing with Brady after the NFC Championship Game. “Congratulations my love!” Bundchen expressed. “@tombrady #gopats.”
