By the Numbers

Here is a look at some of the statistical milestones from MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers in 2014. (Jeff Hanisch/USA TODAY)

0.96: Aaron Rodgers’ interception rate this season, tops in franchise history and seventh-best in NFL history. Rodgers (2011) and Bart Starr (1966) held the old Packers mark of 1.20 percent.

2: MVP awards won by Rodgers. That’s tied for the fifth-most in NFL history for the award inaugurated in 1957. Peyton Manning has won five, Jim Brown, Johnny Unitas and Brett Favre won three, and Joe Montana, Steve Young, Kurt Warner and Tom Brady have won two.

6: First-half touchdowns against Chicago in Week 10, joining Oakland’s Daryle Lamonica (vs. Buffalo in 1969) as the only passers to achieve that in NFL history.

7.6: Touchdown-to-interception ratio this season for Rodgers, with his 38 touchdowns vs. five interceptions. Among quarterbacks with 30 touchdowns in a season, only Tom Brady (9.00; 36 TDs/4 INTs in 2010) is better, though Rodgers holds two of the top three spots. (Rodgers was 7.50; 45 TDs/6 INTs in 2011).

8: Games of three touchdown passes and no interceptions by Rodgers, tying Brady’s NFL record established in 2007.

13: Games without an interception by Rodgers this season. Only Brady (14 in 2010) and Steve DeBerg (14 in 1990) have done better among quarterbacks averaging 15 attempts per game.

18: Touchdown passes and one interception by Rodgers in the first seven games, the only quarterback to do that in NFL history.

25: Touchdown passes by Rodgers, without an interception, in home games.

40: Rodgers, the Colts’ Andrew Luck and the Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger led the league with 15 completions of 40-plus yards.

106.0: Rodgers’ career passer rating, by far the best in NFL history. Romo is second at 97.6, 8.4 points behind Rodgers. For perspective, five quarterbacks are within 2.2 points of Romo.

112.2: Rodgers’ season passer rating, behind only Tony Romo’s 113.2. He’s topped a 100 rating in six consecutive seasons. No other quarterback in NFL history has more than four.

120: Rodgers had a passer rating of at least 120 in seven games, tied with Romo for tops in 2014.

121.7: Rodgers’ league-best passer rating on third down. He threw 15 touchdowns against only two interceptions.

130.4: Rodgers rating vs. the blitz this season. That was the best in the league, as were his 15 touchdown passes (tied with Romo) and 12.2 touchdown percentage.

133.2: Rodgers’ home passer rating set an NFL record. The former record-holder? Rodgers, with his 128.5 in 2011. In fact, Rodgers holds the top three spots with his 126.4 in 2013.

240: Pass attempts at home this season by Rodgers without an interception. Only Brady (241 in 2003) can eclipse that feat in NFL history.

275: First-half passing yards by Rodgers in four games. Since 1990, no other quarterback accomplished that more than twice.

418: Consecutive passes at home without an interception by Rodgers, dating to Dec. 2, 2012. He’s thrown 36 touchdown passes since his last home interception. Both are NFL records.
