Following yet another impressive performance, Aaron Rodgers made more history on Sunday. He is now tied with Brett Favre for most touchdown passes in Green Bay Packers history.

With three touchdown passes versus the Baltimore Ravens taking his career total to 442, he is tied with Favre for most in franchise history.

Making it all the more impressive is that Rodgers achieved this in 45 fewer games than Favre, and with 193 fewer interceptions. Wow.

At some point over the new three weeks, Rodgers will throw another touchdown pass to set a new record. A record that will be hard to beat. And if the reigning MVP plays in Green Bay beyond this season, he could eventually go beyond 500 touchdown passes for the team.

Rodgers could also eventually beat Favre’s record for most career touchdown passes in the NFL. Favre threw 442 in Green Bay but a total of 508 in his entire career. Rodgers will only need to play a few more seasons to likely break that record.

Between them, Rodgers and Favre have thrown 884 touchdown passes playing for the Green Bay Packers. It’s simply unbelievable that the team has had consecutive all-time greats at the QB position. As Favre departed, Rodgers stepped up to put together an even more impressive career.

There is one other record the two legendary QBs are tied for, and that’s Super Bowl rings. Rodgers still has the opportunity to win a second title, but there may never be a greater chance than the one he has this season.

The Packers have one of the strongest and most balanced rosters in the league. They are 11-3, sitting atop the NFC, and know that if they play to their best, they have every chance of going all the way.

Rodgers and Favre’s careers will forever be compared. For now at least, the two share first place in the Packers’ all-time passing touchdown history books.
