Jamaal Charles ripped off the Lambeau Leap and Aaron Rodgers' TD celebration last night

Rodgers threw five TDs though, so he’s probably not that worried.

JAMAAL CHARLES RIPPED off not one, but two, iconic Green Bay Packers celebrations at Lambeau Field last night.

But the Packers had the last laugh as Aaron Rodgers threw five touchdowns in a passing masterclass and they continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 38-28 win against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Ty Montgomery and Randall Cobb had a touchdown apiece in the first quarter before Charles ran in this nine-yarder to leave the Chiefs trailing 14-7.

He celebrated with Rodgers’ “double discount check” move, mimicking a championship belt around his waist.

If Rodgers was bothered, he let his football do the talking and threw two more TDs — to James Jones and another to Cobb — as the Packers stretched their lead to 31-7 midway through the third quarter.

But when Jeremy Maclin caught an Alex Smith pass and then Charles ran in another score to cut the deficit to 38-22 with 10 minutes remaining, he decided to celebrate with the Lambeau Leap.

Rodgers was asked afterwards about the misappropriation of his celebration, which has featured prominently in ads for a US insurance company.

He responded like a good company man:
