Rodgers Eclipses Brett Favre For Most Touchdown Passes in Franchise History

This year, Christmas came a little early for NFL fans, as a couple of games were played on the field. Aaron Rodgers created history by leading the Green Bay Packers to a 24-22 victory over the Cleveland Browns in the first of those games. As part of a three-TD performance, Rodgers eclipsed Brett Favre for the most touchdown passes in franchise history. Apart from those TDs, Rodgers didn’t have a particularly good day, as he only had 202 yards overall.

The defense, however, did, as they picked off Baker Mayfield four times in the contest, ensuring that Rodgers’ big day wasn’t spoiled by an ‘L.’ The Pack remained unbeaten at home and are 12-3 overall to this point, giving them pole position in the race for the NFC’s top seed and only bye. The second game of the day saw the Indianapolis Colts grab a 22-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals to further solidify their playoff hopes by pushing them to 9-6 on the year. Jonathan Taylor rushed for over 100 yards again while Carson Wentz had two TD throws and 225 yards in a solid performance. The defense did allow Kyler Murray to rack up over 300 all-purpose yards, but they did enough as time elapsed to send Arizona to its third consecutive loss, all but ending any hopes of a top-seed in the playoffs for the red birds.
