Aaron Rodgers Named NFC Player Of The Week



Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for games played the second week of the 2013 season. The leader of the Pack earned the honor by putting up record passing statistics last Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Rodgers completed 34 of 42 passes (81 percent) for 480 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions for a 146 passer rating in the Packers’ 38-20 win over Washington. His 480 yards tied the single-game club record.

He joined Pro Football Hall of Famer Y.A. Tittle (October 28, 1962) as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to throw for at least 480 yards and four touchdowns without an interception in a single game.

The Packers are the first team in NFL history with a 450-yard passer (Rodgers) and 125-yard rusher (James Starks) in the same game. The performance was Rodgers’ third career 400-yard game. No other Packer has more than one.

Rodgers has thrown at least three touchdown passes in five consecutive games for the second time in his career. Only he, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning have a pair of such streaks. 

In his ninth season from California, this is Rodgers’ eighth career Player of the Week Award. He won the award twice last season (Weeks 4 and 6).

Since Week 13, 2010, Rodgers’ eight Player of the Week Awards are the most in the NFL during that span. Rodgers has the second-most Player of the Week Awards in franchise history, trailing only Bret Favre (12).
