The 2019 NFL season kicks off with the storied Bears vs. Packers rivalry on 5 September. During a break in the action, the rivalry between Aaron Rodgers' sports agent and State Farm agent will also air in new "Agent vs. Agent" campaign ads.

In State Farm’s new football work which was created by DDB Chicago, Rodgers (Green Bay Packers quarterback) remains the target of the one-sided rivalry between his on-screen sports agent Gabe Gabriel and real-life State Farm Agent Patrick Minnis. This season, Gabriel introduces his new client, Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City Chiefs quarterback) in an attempt to one-up his rival agent.

Gabe's attempt to make Aaron jealous by bringing on last year’s NFL MVP is futile. Throughout the various ads, Gabe tries to show his value. Instead, he sets up the State Farm agent who demonstrates how helpful and understanding State Farm can be.
