What can you say about Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers, last year's NFL MVP. After Sunday night's performance against the Houston Texans, Rodgers has thrust himself into being a legitimate candidate to win the same award this year.
After all, Rodgers threw six touchdown passes, without a pick, for 338 yards. Those stunning numbers has also made Rodgers the top rated quarterback in the NFL, as he now has 16 touchdown passes compared to four interceptions for 1,637 yards and a quarterback rating of 105.4
It makes perfect sense in the overall scheme of things in the NFL, as Rodgers is the top rated quarterback in NFL history with a mark of 104.2. He has now thrown 148 touchdown passes, compared to just 42 picks, for 19,003 yards in his career.
Rodgers also broke the all-time record for quarterback rating last season, as he had a 122.5 rating.
Add to that, Rodgers is also the top-rated quarterback in NFL postseason history as well.
He's thrown 15 touchdown passes against only four picks for 1,781 yards, and has a career QB rating of 105.5 in the postseason. Rodgers was also the MVP of Super Bowl XLV, when he threw three touchdown passes and no interceptions for 304 yards.
Bottom line, Rodgers tied the franchise record of touchdown passes (six) in a game. That's quite a feat if one looks back on the long and storied history of the Packers.
I'm going to list five other quarterbacks that have also left their mark in the Green Bay record book with their passing performances.
This slideshow will only look at quarterbacks since the Vince Lombardi-era began in Green Bay, though it's worth noting the Packers did have a couple of pretty good quarterbacks before then, including Hall of Famer Arnie Herber and Cecil Isbell, who once threw five touchdown passes in a game.
Okay, here we go...
