Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon autographs a football after their game on Dec. 12, 2021, at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Dillon, in just his second season with the Packers, has shown a love for the Green Bay community.

Yep, AJ Dillon is one of us.

The Green Bay Packers running back, who has named his quads "Quadzilla" and "Quadfather," arrived to Lambeau Field not fazed by the frigid temperatures. 

Dillon, the 247-pound second year pro from Boston College, was all smiles ahead of the team's "Sunday Night Football" game against the Minnesota Vikings.

What was he wearing? 

How about a Packers beanie with some overalls over a bare chest while flexing and spreading out his arms as if he's taking the cold weather all in.

It's 11 degrees with a wind chill of 1 degree at kickoff in Green Bay. Mike Tirico said on the "Sunday Night Football" broadcast that it will be the coldest NFL game of the year. 

Dillon has become a popular figure in Green Bay with his hard-nose style of play and his love for Door County.  

Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon scores a touchdown during the fourth quarter on Sunday at Lambeau Field. Dillon rushed for two touchdowns in the Packers' 37-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Dillon then went out and showed why the Packers thought so highly of him in the 2020 NFL draft. He had 14 carries for 63 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 37-10 rout of the Vikings.

He muscled his way for a 4-yard touchdown with 9:34 left in the third quarter to give the Packers a 27-3 lead.  

Then he powered his way into the end zone in the fourth quarter to put the Packers up 37-10 with 8:41 remaining.

He also caught two passes for 20 yards. During the game, he surpassed 1,000 total yards for the season. 

So what did Dillon wear to his post-game interview? Just those same overalls!

Meanwhile, Davante Adams arrived to Lambeau Field wearing Randall Cobb's No. 18 jersey.

Cobb has not played since suffering a core muscle injury against the Los Angeles Rams Nov. 28. He returned to practice this week for the first time since the injury.

Unlike Dillon, most other Packers players were appropriately dressed for the winter weather, including Aaron Rodgers.
