Aaron Rodgers: Top 3 moments for 2020 MVP season
Aaron Rodgers’ success during his 2020 MVP campaign has helped the Packers stroll on to the NFC one-seed and a bye to the Divisional round.
Well well well, here come the Green Bay Packers. For all the doubters throughout the previous offseason, the Packers are atop the NFC by eclipsing back-to-back 13-win seasons.
The road to the Super Bowl official runs through Lambeau which is a major advantage through a very severe global pandemic.
The Packers had an outstanding season led by future Hall-of-Famer Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers’ MVP campaign season has been nothing but spectacular. The ups and downs of the season are all components of embracing adversity and finding ways to flourish to prosperity.
The Packers’ remarkable season thus has definitely not been easy. This season has been as unorthodox as any previous season. Covid-19 has struck an unfamiliarity for NFL coaches and players. Plenty of sacrifices have been made. With reduced family time as well as unconventional travelling, the Packers’ success has been nothing short of wondrous.
Also, Pro Bowl offensive superstars, Davante Adams and Aaron Jones, missed a combined five games this year. Thus limiting his offensive weapons, making his accomplishments far more impressive.
With that being said, Aaron Rodgers had an impeccable 2020 MVP type season that registered some historical moments.
Here are three standout moments from the millennial All-Pro, Aaron Rodgers.
1. Aaron Rodgers surpasses 50,000 career passing yards
In Week 12 against the Chicago Bears, Aaron Rodgers became the 11th quarterback in NFL history to surpass 50,000 career passing yards. The future Hall of Fame quarterback accomplished this milestone on the 39-yard touchdown pass to TE Robert Tonyan.
Rodgers joins cemented HoFers, John Elway, Dan Marino, and Brett Favre in QBs to achieve this incredible accomplishment.
It took Rodgers 6,436 passing attempts to accomplish this feat, second-fewest to the current Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (6,361).
Rodgers was spectacular throwing the ball deep this season. He was tied for the league lead in 40-yard completions (14) with Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray.
Rodgers had some help gaining passing yards this season. Marquez-Valdes scantling was Rodgers’ primary deep target. MVS led the entire NFL in average depth per target at 17.5 yards.
Rodgers also had arguably the best WR in the NFL in Davante Adams. Adams ranked first in the NFL in receiving yards per game (98.1).
Rodgers was helped by his offensive weapons to surpass yet another incredible milestone.
