Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are enjoying a tremendous run in the 2021 NFL season. After a shocking season opening loss to New Orleans Saints, the Packers rallied and picked up three wins in a row. Most recently, they put away Pittsburgh Steelers, and during the match, Aaron Rodgers reached a staggering career feat.

With three touchdowns against the Steelers, Aaron Rodgers reached 500 career touchdowns for the Green Bay Packers. In a Super Bowl XLV rematch, Rodgers brought his sword down on the Steelers’ necks, once again proving he’s not a sleeping giant in the NFL. He also covered a decent yardage, with 248.

Another record went tumbling at Rodgers’ feet as he threw his 420th touchdown pass. With two touchdown passes, Rodgers tied NFL legend Dan Marino for sixth on the all-time list. Randall Cobb had the pleasant chance to be the one to catch the 500th touchdown and even caught the 501st touchdown.

Twitter immediately took off in praise of Tom Brady after his performance against the Patriots. However, many slept on Aaron Rodgers’ performance. A ton of fans did not realise that Rodgers had created a pretty significant slice of history until Packers Wire broke the news to the fans.

It goes without saying that Aaron Rodgers is an MVP candidate this season as well. After impressing last season, the onetime Super Bowl winner must rally to take the Packers all the way to the Super Bowl. The question that remains is- will the ice in his veins melt by then, or will he continue delivering ice cold performances?

After seeing off Detroit, San Francisco and now Pittsburgh, what’s next for the rampaging Packers? Fortunately for Packers fans, they have three games where they are the outright favorites. First is a visit to Cincinnati to play the Bengals, who have also been mildly impressive. After that is a tricky test against Justin Fields/Andy Dalton and the Chicago Bears.

The third game we expect the Packers to clean up is against Washington Football Team. If they pick up three wins on the trot and gather enough momentum, the next game after Washington is bound to be a firecracker. Patrick Mahomes’ Kansas City Chiefs vs Aaron Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers might be the second biggest game of the season.
