Aaron Rodgers is in a class all by himself this season.

In fact, he's playing at a level that very few quarterbacks have ever matched.

In Green Bay's 33-27 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, Rodgers posted a QB rating of 110 or higher for the seventh consecutive game.

What makes the streak so impressive to me is the consistency involved. Since 1960, 52 QBs have posted a perfect 158.3 rating in a game (with 10 or more pass attempts).

So far, only two have gone seven games in a row with a 110 rating or higher.

One of those quarterbacks is Rodgers, the other was Hall of Famer Steve Young in 1994

The 1994 season was a big year for Young. The San Francisco 49ers QB had a total of 11 games with a rating of 110 or higher as he led his team to a Super Bowl win.

Statistically, Rodgers is certainly on his way to that kind of year. His Packers are 7-0.

Entering the bye, Rodgers has passed for 2372 yards, 20 touchdowns and thrown only three interceptions in seven games. He’s completed 71.5 percent of his passes and boasts a 125.7 QB rating.

Rodgers’ first seven games rank behind only Tom Brady’s in 2007 (137.9 rating) and Kurt Warner’s in 1999 (125.9 rating).

Both Warner and Brady played in the Super Bowl in those years, and Brady’s Patriots went undefeated in the regular season.

With the way Rodgers is playing, it seems very possible that he could achieve both of those feats this season.
