Aaron Rodgers Profile
For the eighth time in his career, Aaron Rodgers was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.
Rodgers completed 34-of-42 passes for 480 yards and four touchdowns, good for a passer rating of 146.0, in Sunday's 38-20 throttling of Washington. His yardage total tied the franchise record.
Other nuggets, courtesy the NFL's release:
• 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 Brett Favre (12).
Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman (one interception vs. San Francisco) won on defense and Chicago's Devin Hester (franchise-record 249 yards on kickoff returns with a 49.8-yard average) won on special teams.
