Streaks End: Rodgers Throws Home Interception

Rodgers falls one touchdown short of 50 touchdown passes between home interceptions and had gone 197 attempts overall without an interception.

Aaron Rodgers’ remarkable interception-free streak at Lambeau Field came to an end during the first quarter of Sunday’s game against St. Louis.

On third-and-2 from the Rams’ 42, the Rams snuck safety Mark Barron to the line of scrimmage as a sixth rusher. Barron deflected Rodgers’ quick pass and it was intercepted by linebacker James Laurianitis.

Rodgers entered the game with league records of 486 consecutive regular-season passes and 580 consecutive overall passes at home since his last interception on Dec. 2, 2012. Rodgers added six passes to that streak on Sunday, running those totals to 492 regular-season passes and 586 overall passes.

Rodgers did add a touchdown pass to give him 44 touchdown passes (regular season) and 49 touchdowns (including postseason) between home interceptions.

Also, Rodgers had gone 197 consecutive passes without an interception, five shy of his own spot in fourth place for longest streak in Packers history. And Rodgers had thrown 31 touchdown passes vs. zero interceptions in the first half of regular-season games dating to the start of last season.

Rodgers threw another interception late in the first half, when Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson jumped an out to James Jones. That marked Rodgers' first two-interception game at home since Oct. 24, 2010, vs. Minnesota.
