The 2-time NFL MVP became the 11th quarterback to cross the 50,000 passing yards landmark in his ongoing NFL career. However, as revealed on Tuesday’s edition of The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers’ not done yet.

“When it comes to records, I love them. And milestones like, I do take pride in them. I think they’re more things you look back on when you’re done playing.

“I don’t think I’m done by any stretch of imagination, even though some people may have thought so in the offseason. There’s another milestone coming up that’s exciting.

“When it comes to milestones, oh, like I think the trifecta that we hit in the game was pretty sweet. With big dog in his 400th catch on a touchdown.

“Davante, his 500th catch on a touchdown in my 50,000 yards. The touchdown with Tonyan was pretty good,” Rodgers said on the show.

The 36-year-old will be expected to put in another strong display against a hurting Philadelphia Eagles outfit on Sunday as the Packers push to make the Super Bowl.
