Rodgers Makes History In Win, Giants Get Massive Victory
After Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Aaron Rodgers became just the seventh quarterback in NFL history to throw for 400 touchdowns or more. Green Bay’s man, however, is now the fastest to reach that marking, doing so as he helped lead the Packers to a 30-16 win. Drew Brees had previously been the fastest to do so, but Rodgers shattered his record by 12 games, doing it in 193 career games. That is over two touchdowns per game as well, quite a record considering the longevity of it. To get to that landmark, he had to throw for three today, and he did just that.
Two of those came in the first half, keeping up a hot streak that had seen him throw for four last weekend. The win, which also saw him pick up 295 yards through the air and also saw running back Aaron Jones run for over 100 yards and a TD of his own, improved them to 9-3 on the year. They are back a game in the race for the NFC’s top seed still, but they remain in with a chance. Elsewhere, the New York Giants made a huge statement as they got a huge win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. With the win, they moved up to 5-7 on the year, putting them in first in the woeful NFC East. The 17-12 victory win came as a result of a very strong second half, with all 17 points being scored within a big 15-minute period between the midway point of the third and fourth quarters. Russell Wilson was held to just one touchdown and 263 yards, while he also was picked off once. DK Metcalf was slowed, only making five catches, albeit for 80 yards, helping them capitalize and win to take the division lead. In other action, the Las Vegas Raiders won in Hail Mary fashion at the last second 31-28 over the New York Jets. That loss kept the Jets winless at 0-12 while the Raiders bounced back from a humbling to the Falcons last week.
