Last year, the Lions beat the Packers in both of their meetings. A 31-23 win in October came against Aaron Rodgers while a 31-0 win in Week 17 came [more]

In the National Football League (NFL), the highest official passer rating that a quarterback can achieve is 158.3, which is called a " perfect passer rating ".

The highest passer rating in Packers ’ history of 155.4 was also held by Rodgers , who Making it even more impressive is that Rodgers continued to operate without Pro Bowl wideout Davante Adams, while Much like Rodgers , Wilson is playing with an undermanned cast. Wilson has thrown for 15

GREEN BAY — Aaron Rodgers wanted to aim his throw at Aaron Jones’ outside shoulder. That’s how the play worked in practice during the week. Now, early in Sunday’s first quarter, the running back corner route was being brought into a game.

Only problem was the Oakland Raiders had the corner covered. When Jones broke his route outside, the way he was instructed, Rodgers didn’t have a throwing window.

Brett Favre, former Packers QB, wonders whether he played too long

  Brett Favre, former Packers QB, wonders whether he played too long Hall of Fame quarterback and Packers great Brett Favre says in an interview that he wonders "every day" whether he stayed in football too long. "Absolutely. I wonder every day what tomorrow will bring just from [how] I did play. John Wayne was cool then. Maybe not so cool now.”Despite his health concerns, Favre has no regrets about playing football.“I wouldn’t trade any of it, the good and the bad.”Rodgers discusses offensePackers QB Aaron Rodgers was a guest Tuesday on the weekly SiriusXM NFL Radio show Favre does with co-host Bruce Murray.

Aaron Rodgers drew praise from both head coaches for his record-setting performance in the Green Bay Packers ' 42-24 win over the Rodgers finished 25-for-31 passing with 429 yards, six total touchdowns and a perfect passer rating of 158.3, becoming the fourth quarterback to achieve the

So the Green Bay Packers quarterback improvised.

“I felt like to throw it within the boundary would’ve been too flat,” Rodgers explained, “and a guy was on him. So I just tried to put it up.”

Rodgers put it toward his running back’s inside shoulder. He dropped it over Raiders linebacker Nicholas Morrow’s head, yet still inside cornerback Gareon Conley, a perfect throw that, no, coach Matt LaFleur didn’t script.

When Jones caught Sunday afternoon’s opening touchdown pass, making a remarkable adjustment and securing the football as he fell to the field, it seemed like something special might be brewing. Jones, running wide open through the Detroit Lions secondary, dropped a sure touchdown six days earlier. The degree of difficulty here was infinitely higher.

In one of the most impressive performances of his career, Rodgers torched the Raiders for 429 Rodgers also finished with a QB rating of 158.3, marking the first time in his career and the first time in Packers history that If Rodgers continues to play at the MVP - level that he's currently playing at

Aaron Rodgers threw five touchdown passes and ran for another in his best game under new coach Matt LaFleur. Aaron Rodgers crushes the Raiders by throwing for five touchdowns and running for another to help the Packers win 42-24.

Even still, nobody could have guessed just how special the Packers’ two-time MVP quarterback’s day would become.

Rodgers accounted for as many touchdowns as he had incompletions during the Packers’ 42-24 rout of the Raiders, a win that improved their record to 6-1 and positioned them firmly in the NFC’s early conversation for home-field advantage. He had a season-high 429 passing yards, just the ninth time in his career he has exceeded 400 in a game. His five touchdown passes — he added a 3-yard rushing touchdown — to five different receivers was one behind his career high, and only the fifth time he has done that in his career.

Then, there’s this: Rodgers’ 158.3 rating, the maximum value a quarterback can achieve, was the first time in Packers history a quarterback has had a perfect mark in a single game. Rodgers broke his own single-game franchise record of 155.4, which he set at the Cleveland Browns in 2009.

4 takeaways from Packers’ 23-22 victory over Lions

  4 takeaways from Packers’ 23-22 victory over Lions Four big takeaways from the Packers' comeback win over the Lions on "Monday Night Football."Admittedly, this win feels a bit cheap. Even so, the Packers have been on their fair share of bad beats: the Fail Mary, the 2014 NFC Championship meltdown, and of course the most appropo example given the circumstances, last year's tie against Minnesota that only happened because Clay Matthews played victim to the NFL's poorly exercised "point of emphasis" on roughing the passer. This time the universe has blessed the Packers with a correction.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones put up some eye-popping numbers in hopes of helping Rodgers threw for five scores and ran for another while posting a perfect passer rating of 158.3. It’s the first time the two-time MVP has had a perfect

“That’s some legendary stuff,” outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith said.

What does a perfect passer rating look like in the box score? How about a 25-for-31 completion clip, 13.8 yards per pass, and six total touchdowns. Rodgers became only the second quarterback in NFL history to have at least 400 passing yards, five passing touchdowns, a rushing touchdown and no interceptions in a single game, joining former Washington Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien.

The afternoon might have started imperfectly, with Rodgers forced to make an adjustment on his first touchdown throw. By day’s end, it was as close to perfection as any quarterback has reached in NFL history.

“I still don’t understand how they put that rating together,” Rodgers said, smirking and perhaps, considering his football intelligence, presenting a little humility, “but it does sound pretty good.”

EA Sports officially announced Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers as one of seven NFL players This year’s virtual Rodgers will have: a 99 rating for “awareness”; 97 for “throw power”; 97 for A two-time NFL MVP , Rodgers was well on his way to a third when he broke his collarbone in

It looked even better. Looked vintage. Rodgers threw deep Sunday, completing a 59-yard bomb to Marquez Valdes-Scantling. That stood as the Packers’ longest play of the season until Valdes-Scantling capped his afternoon with a 74-yard touchdown catch and run in the fourth quarter. Rodgers hit almost everything underneath, with LaFleur’s crossing patterns frequently leading to wide-open receivers.

It looked like everything the Packers hoped their offense would be once quarterback and head coach found their rhythm.

“I feel like this has been coming,” Rodgers said. “I really do. I feel like we’ve been building, and I’ve been feeling a lot more comfortable, and Matt’s been feeling more comfortable with him calling it for me and feeling when I’m in that rhythm, and when to be aggressive and when to pull back.”

“When we’ve been at our best over the years, it’s being aggressive and knowing when to dial it back. We had even some more shots called that we called off or dialed back because of the look. We kept dialing them up. I thought the plan was really good.”

That Rodgers did it without top receiver Davante Adams might be the most impressive part.

He had a perfect passer rating and a career-high 13.8 yards per pass attempt, which is the second-highest Some touchdowns came on big plays : On Green Bay’s first drive, Rodgers moved the offense from And Rodgers likely could not remember the last time he didn’t change plays at the line.

Aaron Rodgers threw five incompletions, but Russell Wilson threw FIVE interceptions. The 33-year-old quarterback finished the game with 246 yards, three touchdowns, and a 150.8 passer rating . As long as Rodgers continues to play at a high level , the Packers have a chance to clinch a playoff spot.

The Packers have won each of their three games without the Pro Bowl receiver, two of those wins accounting for their two highest point totals of the season. Rodgers assured the Packers are missing Adams’ presence. “I can promise you,” the quarterback said, “we need him and we’re a better offense with 17 on the field.” Still, by spreading the wealth and relying on a consistent run game, Rodgers has found something resembling MVP form.

Without Adams, Rodgers’ top receiver is a former fifth-round pick (Valdes-Scantling). Rounding out his top four Sunday were a trio of undrafted receivers (Geronimo Allison, Jake Kumerow, Allen Lazard). A great quarterback is supposed to elevate those around him. Suffice to say, Rodgers has elevated the offense around him.

“I think he can be in that (MVP) talk pretty much every year,” right tackle Bryan Bulaga said. “Even look at the years he’s not in it. I mean, you see what happens. That’s just the type of talent he is. Aaron Rodgers is still one of the best quarterbacks to ever play, and to still play right now.

“So, yeah, I mean, I don’t know who puts people in those discussions, but I don’t see a reason why he shouldn’t be. We’re 6-1, and not a lot of people thought we were going to be at this stage of the season what we are.”

Raiders' Crosby trolls Rodgers with Discount Double Check sack dance

  Raiders' Crosby trolls Rodgers with Discount Double Check sack dance Not many defensive players across the NFL can say that they managed to sack the elusive pocket wizard that is Aaron Rodgers . Well, during the Raiders clash on Sunday versus the Packers, Oakland defensive lineman Maxx Crosby wrapped up Rodgers and brought him to the turf on a third and long in the first quarter. Clearly enthralled with his efforts, Crosby subsequently trolled the two-time MVP by unleashing his eminent "Discount Double Check" celebration. One of the most savage sack celebrations of the year [email protected]

Rodgers had as many touchdowns as incomplete passes , going 19-of-22 for 255 yards and three touchdowns. His 154.5 passer rating was just a tick off the perfect rating of 158.3. That allowed him to watch most of the fourth quarter from the sidelines, as this one was over early.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers may never replicate the incredible season he enjoyed in 2011. Rodgers set the NFL record for passer rating in a single season (122.5) and won his first MVP award. Rodgers ’ 45 touchdown passes now ranks as the sixth most in NFL history.
