Bob Costas’ Sunday Night Football pre-game interview with #Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers featured more than its share of queries about Rodgers’ State Farm “discount double check” ads, so much so that tweeters wondered if Costas was trying to score an extra paycheck:

Half of Bob Costas' interview with Aaron Rodgers had to do with his State Farm commercial. How much did State Farm pay for that? #NFLonNBC
