130915-q4-updates-600GREEN BAY–Aaron Rodgers and James Starks became the first players in Packers history to combine for 400 yards passing and 100 yards rushing, and Rodgers tied Matt Flynn for an all-time Packers record for yards passing in a regular-season game. It happened on Sunday at Lambeau Field in a 38-20 win over the 0-2 Washington Redskins.

The game became a rout in the third quarter when the Packers went out to a 31-0 lead. Several Packers players posted impressive stats.

Rodgers passed for 480 yards and four touchdowns.

Starks rushed for 132 yards and one touchdown. He became the first Packers runner to hit the 100-yard mark since Brandon Jackson did it against the Redskins in 2010.

James Jones caught 11 passes for 178 yards, a week after being shut out in San Francisco.

The Packers defense dominated the stats until the game deteriorated into a lot of irrelevant action.

At 1-1, the Packers travel to Cincinnati next weekend.
