Aaron Rodgers and Ndamukong Suh haven't liked each other for a long time.

The NFL stars were NFC North rivals during Suh's five seasons with the Detroit Lions and their rivalry continued Sunday as Suh’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers, 38-10.

Rodgers, who was sacked five times in the loss, had a few verbal exchanges with Suh on the field.

Suh got flagged for a late hit in the second quarter for pushing Rodgers to the ground. 

Two plays later, Suh hit Rodgers again.

The two exchanged some words after the hit.

Rodgers acknowledged his on-field confrontations with Suh when he spoke to the media after the game.

“That goes back a long time, and I’m sure the cameras caught some stuff,” Rodgers said, according to Pro Football Talk.

Bak in 2014, Suh was suspended for stepping on Rodgers' leg during a Week 17 Lions-Packers game with the NFC North title on the line. Rodgers had suffered a calf injury two weeks earlier.

Suh denied intentionally stepping on Rodgers and he appealed the suspension. Suh was suspended for Detroit's wild-card playoff game the next week, but was able to play after having his punishment reduced to a $70,000 fine.
