Aaron Rodgers is having a season to forget. The Green Bay quarterback is struggling with his offense and is going into the history books for all the wrong reasons. Despite his poor form of late, Rodgers has a lot of outstanding records too. And Tom Brady is on a mission to break them all.

Aaron Rodgers recently passed a career high 3 interceptions against their division rivals, Detroit Lions. Tom Brady is also having a season to forget. However, Brady’s accurate passing is hard to intercept for defenses and A-Rod’s MVP year stats might be in danger.

Brady is very close to breaking an elite Aaron Rodgers stat

In his 2018 MVP season, Aaron Rodgers passed with ultimate accuracy. The Green Bay Packers main man set a record for 402  consecutive passes without an interception. A-Rod did that by surpassing Tom Brady’s 358 during his New England days from the 2010-2011 NFL seasons. Well, it’s now Brady’s turn to return the favor and snatch the number one spot again.

Tom Brady currently has 373 consecutive passes without an interception and can take the lead on Monday when Tampa Bay Buccaneers face Seattle. Brady’s offense is struggling with receiving and running the ball, but Brady seems to be doing his part this season. Brady has only 1 interception after Week 9 on 2547 yards and 398 total throws, putting him at an incredible 0.25 percent interception rate. Aaron Rodgers’ 2018 record of 0.34 percent season interception rate is also in danger.

Compared to Brady’s 2022 numbers, Aaron Rodgers has thrown 317 times for 7 interceptions this NFL season. During the 15-9 loss to the worst rated defense in the league, the Detroit Lions, A-Rod had a career-high 3 interceptions game. Wide receivers, Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, leaving in the off-season have been the biggest blow to the Packers and Rodgers.

The Packers have lost five games in a row this season and are currently 3-6  in the second place of the NFC North Division. The 2011 Super Bowl MVP has spoken about his lack of offensive choices, which worsened after the Packers didn’t make any signings on the trade deadline.
