There has been a lot of debate and discussion about Aaron Rodgers not having a very good season in 2022. Those who say he had a bad season can certainly point to a few stats: second most interceptions in a season (12), second lowest yards per attempt in his career (6.8) and no games in 2022 with 300 or more passing yards.
Some good Aaron Rodgers stats for 2022
That being said, Rodgers, in his 18th season (15th as a starter) did compile a set of numbers from the QB position that many quarterbacks would be proud of: 350 completions, a 64.6 completion percentage, 3,695 passing yards, 26 TDs, and a 91.1 Passer Rating.
Based on the above numbers, Rodgers for the 13th season in his career reached 300 completions, 60% completion rate, 3,000 passing yards, 25 TD passes, and a Passer Rating of 90 or better. In fact, he was one of only 10 NFL QBs in 2022 to reach all of these stats. The others: Tom Brady, Kirk Cousins, Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Justin Herbert, Joe Burrow, Jared Goff, Geno Smith, and Trevor Lawrence.
Rodgers and Brady each reached these five stats listed above for the 13th season in their careers. Both are now tied with Peyton Manning in this category.
Aaron Rodgers is tied for 1st with these passing stats
Here are the NFL QBs who have reached 300 completions, 60% completion percentage, 3,000 passing yards, 25 TD passes, and a Passer Rating of 90 or above in the most seasons.
13-Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers
8-Kirk Cousins, Matt Ryan, Philip Rivers
7-Ben Roethlisberger, Brett Favre
5-Patrick Mahomes, Matthew Stafford
4-Russell Wilson, Eli Manning, Kurt Warner
A total of 51 different QBs reached these numbers in at least one season in their career
Rodgers and Favre are the only Green Bay QBs to reach these numbers in a season.
Now that Brady has retired, Rodgers, if he decides to play in 2023, could take sole possession of the top spot in this stat after next season.
