GREEN BAY – Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 13.

In Green Bay's 30-16 victory over the Eagles, Rodgers finished 25-of-34 for 295 yards with three TDs and a 128.9 passer rating.

Rodgers became the seventh quarterback in NFL history to throw 400 TD passes, the fastest to reach that mark in league history by doing so on his 6,462nd attempt (Peyton Manning, 7,226). Rodgers also became the fastest to reach 400 TDs in terms of games, doing so in his 193rd career game (Drew Brees, 205).

Rodgers also set the mark for the fewest INTs at the time of his 400th career TD pass at 88, besting the previous mark held by Tom Brady (143).

More milestones Rodgers reached:

  • First QB in NFL history with 50,000-plus passing yards, 400-plus passing TDs and 3,000-plus rushing yards.
  • First QB in NFL history to have five seasons with 35-plus TD passes (2011-12, 2014, 2016, 2020).
  • Rodgers' 36 TD passes are the second most in team history through 12 games behind only his 37 TD passes in 2011.
  • It was Rodgers' ninth game on the season with three-plus TD passes, the second most in a season in franchise annals behind his 10 in 2011.
  • Rodgers (36/4) has posted 35-plus TD passes and five or fewer INTs in the first 12 games for the second time in his career (37/5 in 2011). Brady is the only other QB to ever accomplish that feat (41/5 in 2007).
  • Completed 13 of 14 passes in the first half, a career-high (min. 10 att.) completion percentage (92.9 percent) for a first half. It marked the second time this season he has posted a completion percentage of 90-plus in a first half (11 of 12, 91.7 percent vs. Minnesota in Week 8) after never doing so in a first half prior to this season.

This marks the 18th time in Rodgers' career he's been honored as the NFC Offensive Player of the Week, a franchise record.
