QB Aaron Rodgers

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Week after his franchise-record-tying 480-yard passing game on Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

Rodgers tied Matt Flynn’s single-game passing mark, originally set in Week 17 of 2011, when Flynn filled in for Rodgers prior to the playoffs. Rodgers completed 34 of 42 passes with four TDs and no interceptions for a 146.0 passer rating, the third highest of his career.

His 34 completions tied his career best, and he became just the second QB in NFL history to throw for 480-plus yards with four TDs and zero INTs, joining Giants QB Y.A. Tittle, who threw for 505 yards with seven TDs and no INTs on Oct. 28, 1962.

This is the eighth time in his career Rodgers has been named NFC’s Offensive Player of the Week.
