Aaron Rodgers, James Starks voted Air & Ground Players of the Week

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 20, 2013 – 4:28 pm

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and RB James Starks have been voted the Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for Week 2.

Rodgers tied a franchise record with 480 yards passing in Green Bay’s 38-20 victory over Washington. He completed 34 of 42 passes with four touchdowns and no interceptions, posting a passer rating of 146.0, the third highest of his career. The 34 completions tied his career best.

Starks took over for Eddie Lacy (concussion) in the first quarter and rushed 20 times for a career-high 132 yards, including a 32-yard TD. He became the first Packers RB to rush for 100 yards in a regular-season game since Brandon Jackson in Week 5 of 2010, and the first to do so in any game since Starks himself rushed for 123 yards at Philadelphia in the 2010 NFC Wild Card playoff contest.

    I wonder when the last time two players from the same team won both ends of this award for performances in the same game?

    I far as I can tell, it was week 11 of 2011 when Matthew Stafford and Kevin Smith of Detroit did it. I found 11 other instance, once by Green Bay: Brett Favre and Ryan Grant in Week 10 of 2007. An interesting aside I found, Aaron Rogers has set the record for most times in a season (6, 2011) and consecutive weeks (4, also 2011). He also want air player of the year in 2011.

    Wow, 2 big stats in 1 game, 2 awards. McCarthy better lead Aaron to a few more Super Bowls while the window is still open.

    since that game in philly in 2010 ive been telling everyone to let starks run the ball and the first time he does look what happens

    Well I said I wanted to see more of James Starks before the game, as I think he’s better than Lacey. I didn’t want him to get that playing time cause of a injury to Lacey though. I’ve seen alot of critisim of Starks for some Packer fans, and I’m not sure why. He always produces when he gets to play, and he’ll hold on to the ball. I have no patience for any back putting the ball on the ground.
