Aaron Rodgers celebrates a TD with Allen Lazard.

Many of the headlines around Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers this season haven’t been about his play on the field, rather covering the offseason drama between him and the team, his many comments about COVID-19 and vaccines, and also his toe injury. However, reigning NFL MVP Rodgers has still been quite good when he has played, throwing for 3,487 yards and 30 touchdowns with a 67.8 percent completion rate and just four interceptions heading into Saturday’s game against the Cleveland Browns. And on Saturday, Rodgers tossed another three touchdowns in the first half alone, and the first one he threw (to Allen Lazard, seen above celebrating with Rodgers) gave him 443 touchdown passes with the Packers, surpassing Brett Favre’s 442. Here are those passes:

As noted in that second tweet, Rodgers’ 67 (now) touchdown passes to Adams are also a franchise record, passing Rodgers’ 65 TD passes to Jordy Nelson. So there’s lots of history being made here. And yes, this was helped by three first-half interceptions from Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield, giving Rodgers excellent field position. But Rodgers still made some impressive throws, and he further bolstered his place in Packers’ history along the way.
