Packers Aaron Rodgers Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Packers.com is reporting that Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been named Week 13′s NFC Offensive Player of the week.

  • Rodgers completed 21 of 30 passes (70.0 percent) for 298 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions for a 135.1 passer rating in the Packers’ 34-16 win over San Francisco.
  • He threw long touchdown passes to DONALD DRIVER (61 yards) and GREG JENNINGS (57), just the second time a player had two 50 yard TD passes in a December game at Lambeau Field (BRETT FAVRE, 1998).
  • Rodgers has not thrown an interception in five consecutive games and is the first Packer to not throw an interception in five consecutive starts since Pro Football Hall of Famer BART STARRin 1966.  He has not thrown an interception in 177 attempts, the second-longest streak in franchise history (Starr, 294).
  • He has posted a passer rating of at least 110.0 in four consecutive games.  It is just the third time a Packers quarterback has accomplished the feat; Rodgers in 2009 and Starr in 1966.
  • In his sixth season from California, this is Rodgers’ first career Player of the Week Award.  He was named NFC Offensive Player of the Month in October 2009.
  • He joins BRETT FAVRE and ANTONIO FREEMAN as the only offensive players in franchise history to be named both Player of the Week and Player of the Month.

Rodgers has also been nominated for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week.  Be sure to vote for him in the 12/07 post.
