Packers great Aaron Rodgers sets another milestone in epic win

After his three touchdowns tonight, Rodgers now has 36 passing touchdowns in 2020 from 12 games. He has thrown for more than 3,300+ yards against just four interceptions with a pass completion rate of 68.5%.

After the Week 13 displays against the Eagles, the swashbuckling Packers quarterback became the first player in NFL history to record five seasons with 35 or more passing touchdowns. Is there anything this dashing quarterback can’t do? We don’t think so, A-Rod is just getting better with time. Jordan Love will have to get used to the bench, at least for a few more years.

However, credit must be given to rookie Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts. The youngster replaced the misfiring Carson Wentz in the third quarter and put up a strong fight for the visitors in the final quarter. We’re sure to see more of the promising youngster in the coming weeks.

We all know the damage a fit-and-motivated Aaron Rodgers can do to opposition defenses. The California-born quarterback is definitely in the running for a third potential MVP title, along with Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson.

His stats from the last 12 games are second to no quarterback in the league. But the question is, how far can he lead the Packers in the post-season? A run to the NFC Championship is definitely on the cards, maybe even a Super Bowl appearance. Watch this space for more.
