There's no need to mince words: Aaron Rodgers is one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever grip the pigskin.
Despite all of his undeniable greatness, Rodgers might have been at his peak Sunday at Lambeau Field.
Playing a Raiders team with two weeks to prepare and without his top wide receiver, Davante Adams, Rodgers ripped the Silver and Black limb from limb, throwing for 429 yards and five touchdowns while adding a rushing touchdown and notching a perfect passer rating in a 42-24 Green Bay win. The Packers' star quarterback registered just six incompletions on the day.
Rodgers' destruction of the Silver and Black is one he'll surely remember.
Aaron Rodgers becomes the 5th QB in NFL history to throw for 400 yards and post a perfect passer rating on 30+ attempts.— Peter Bukowski (@Peter_Bukowski) October 20, 2019
Dak Prescott and Deshaun Watson each did it earlier this year.
He's the first with 6 total TDs.
Aaron Rodgers has the highest passer rating in NFL history. He's played in 189 games in his career.— Matt Schneidman (@mattschneidman) October 20, 2019
Today was his first game ever with a perfect 158.3 passer rating.
Should say, Rodgers became the first player in the modern NFL to accomplish these stats. The Browns' Frank Ryan also did it in 1964 against the Giants— Ben Volin (@BenVolin) October 20, 2019
Rodgers was locked in.
The Raiders leave Lambeau Field at 3-3, and will head to Houston to play the Texans in the finale of their five-game road trip.
After back-to-back wins over the Colts and Bears, the Raiders put themselves in the thick of the AFC West race. After Rodgers took the wind out of their sails Sunday, the Silver and Black will need to regroup fast in order to stay in the AFC hunt.
