4. Aaron Rodgers

Stat line: 25/34, 295 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs

This week’s list wouldn’t be complete with out the third of the Packers’ big three on offense.

When you are the fastest to 400 touchdowns, you make the list. When you are the fastest to 400 touchdowns and still aren’t even near 100 interceptions yet, you are on a list all to yourself.

That is exactly what Aaron Rodgers has done in the latest chapter of his remarkable career. The love for Rodgers as MVP is growing, as it should be.

In addition to the accolades I’ve already mentioned, Rodgers’ three touchdown passes makes him the only quarterback to have five seasons of 35 touchdowns or more.

Rodgers’ best throw in the game wasn’t even one of his three touchdowns.

Backed up on their own one-yard line, Rodgers dropped back and launched a perfect throw in-between two Eagles defenders for a 42-yard gain.

That drive ended with 99 yards and his 400th touchdown.

Like Adams, Rodgers can set new career-highs in touchdowns and yards. Setting the new mark for touchdowns will be easier as he only has to average just over two touchdowns a game in the remaining four games.

To set a new mark in passing yards he will have to average 312 yards a game, something he probably won’t have to do with the Packers’ explosive ground game.

Regardless, Rodgers has had an MVP-type season and could bring home that award and more by season’s end.

The Packers will travel to Detroit to play the Lions with a new/interim head coach and the hunger to spoil their rival’s fun.

With only four games left, the Packers have all their goals right in front of them. Keep on winning and a loss by the Saints will get them the number one seed. Teams won’t want to travel to Green Bay in January. Especially when you see all but one of those teams in the race are either dome or warm-weather teams.
