After Sunday’s game against the Steelers, Aaron Rodgers has become the first Packers player to score 500 Total TD’s. Total TD’s include passing and rushing TD’s for both the regular and post-season.
Aaron Rodgers’ record-breaking day
Aaron Rodgers broke Brett Favre’s previous record, of 495 TD’s, against the 49ers with his first TD pass to Davante Adams in the first quarter. It only took him roughly 35 more minutes to break that record with a beautiful rainbow pass to Marquez Valdes-Scantling.
It was pure poetry to watch Aaron Rodgers reach that 500 Total TD mark with his 2nd TD pass of the day to Randall Cobb. That gave Cobb his 49th career TD and his 2nd TD of the season. It was Cobb’s 43rd TD as a Packer, he is now tied with Billy Howton for 11th all-time.
Not only did Aaron Rodgers become the first Packer to reach 500 Total TDs on Sunday, but he also tied Dan Marino for 6th All-time in TD passes with 420. As a result, with the pace Rodgers is on, he should finish 5th all-time by next week.
