Just one episode remains in "Game of Thrones", HBO's wildly popular fantasy drama.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made a brief cameo during Sunday night's episode of "Game of Thrones", but the episode had fans confused as to which person he exactly was.

Rodgers joins several other famous folks who have snagged cameos including singers Chris Stapleton and Ed Sheeran and "Always Sunny in Philadelphia" actor Rob McElhenney.

Rodgers' cameo is a long time coming for the star National Football League quarterback and big-time Thrones fan, who did a video clip for the show a year ago in the run-up to the final season.

Television sports reporter Lily Zhao posted video of Rodgers, in costume, talking about his bit part on the show. Unfortunately for Rodgers and his fellow soldiers, he was most likely roasted by Drogon in the battle.
