GREEN BAY – Following a dominant December, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for the 10th time in his career.
Despite rarely practicing due to a lingering toe injury, Rodgers still completed 76-of-102 passes (74.5%) for 811 yards with 10 touchdowns and no interceptions (130.0 passer rating) in his three December starts.
The NFL's reigning MVP is making a case to go back-to-back after throwing for 3,689 yards, 33 touchdowns and just four interceptions this year. His 110.8 passer rating leads the league.
This is the fourth time Rodgers has won NFC Offensive Player of the Month during the month of December (2010, '16, '20 and '21). He also was honored in October 2009; September, October and November 2011; October 2012; and November 2014. Rodgers joins Tom Brady (11) as the only players to win 10-plus Player of the Month awards.
It's the fourth major NFC award Green Bay has won this year. Linebacker De'Vondre Campbell was the NFC Defensive Player of the Month in October, while cornerback Rasul Douglas was selected as the NFC Defensive Player of the Week after registering a career-high four passes defensed and an interception returned for a touchdown in a 36-28 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 12. Rodgers also won NFC Offensive Player of the Week in Week 15 for his three-TD performance at Baltimore, his franchise-record 19th player of the week award.
