Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the Packers Hall of Fame's Featured Player of the Week for Week 16. In Sunday night's 35-21 victory over the Chicago Bears, Rodgers became one of three QBs in NFL history to post 10 games with at least three touchdown passes in a season (Brady; 12, Marino; 10) and threw a career-high five TD passes, matching the single-game franchise record.
Rodgers also tied Brett Favre's '96 franchise record of five games with four TD passes this season and set the single-season franchise record for most passing yards in a season with 4,643, passing Lynn Dickey (4,458). With his 142.7 passer rating, Rodgers set an NFL single-season record with his 13th 100-plus passer rating game (Steve Young, 12 in '94; Tom Brady, 12 in '10).
Each week, a game-used football will be placed on display to be viewed by visitors to the Hall and at the end of the week will be awarded randomly to a Hall of Fame visitor who signed up for the drawing.
Also in the exhibit will be the featured player's jersey, as well as potentially other items such as a face mask, shoes, gloves and other equipment.
The exhibit opened Sept. 12 and will continue through the season. Hall of Fame admission is required to see the exhibit, and visitors are able to fill out a drawing form for a chance to win the ball.
