Rodgers has four straight games, plus a 70% completion, the longest active series in the NFL to tie his only season-long 2010 career (he won an SB).
On Sunday night, Rodgers generated three TDs and there was no fourth interception in the first half of 2020. In the first half of the season, no player did twice as much. This marked the 23rd game of QB’s career with four or more passed TDs, 0 INT, and a pass rating of 125 or better, which all players have scored the most since at least 1950, according to NFL Research.
The 16-year-old pro credited his huge line of attack, which kept the QB straight, even through injuries requiring remodeling. Rodgers has been fired just 11 times this season, sparking the year for 16 years, which is a low career opportunity since he entered the field in 2008 as a beginner.
“For a soon-to-be 37-year-old, this is my dream,” Rodgers said. “It’s an amazing feeling to go home and not feel like a nearly 37-year-old. I’ve been feeling really great all season, so I appreciate those guys.”
Rodgers ’MVP-caliber season began back on draft night when the Packers selected their later deputy, Jordan Love, in the first round. Since that night, the QB has been hiking in vain, they are all tormented in his path.
On Sunday night, that meant the Bears had a sore world.
“I see you’re constantly pretty dialed, but obviously when you finish at a different level, I think it’s a little more obvious,” said far-sighted Davante Adams. “But he does. That’s right. And especially this year, we expect that from him, and we’ll need (this) to give a boost to this thing.”
Sitting at 8-3, the Packers, who triggered the northern division of the NFC, appear to be a formality after Sunday night. The goal now will be to put New Orleans at the top of the conference and run into a deep post-season in February that has avoided Rodgers and Packers since their 2010 Lombardi act.
