McPeak’s ‘State of the Packers’
By Josh McPeak
Aaron Rodgers was simply amazing on Sunday night.
For starters, he is the first quarterback in history to throw 10 touchdowns and zero interceptions against an opponent in the same season. What makes it all that much sweeter is it came against the Bears.
Rodgers threw six, yes 6 touchdowns in the first half. Not only did it tie his own and Matt Flynn’s single-game franchise record but also that of Oakland’s Daryle Lamonica for touchdowns in a single half of play; Lamonica threw six in one half back in 1969.
When Rodgers connected on a 73-yard touchdown to Jordy Nelson it also broke another record. Giving him his 16th career touchdown of 70-plus yards, breaking the tie between Rodgers, Peyton Manning and the great Brett Favre.
Number 12 would wrap up his night early with a stat sheet of 18-for-25 passing, 315 yards, 6 touchdowns and a QB rating of 145.8.
