Green Bay Packers and Chiropractic advocate Aaron Rodgers became the fastest quarterback to throw for 30,000 yards in NFL history Sunday.
Rodgers reached the milestone in 3,652 attempts, topping the record previously held by Johnny Unitas. Rodgers is the 40th quarterback overall to reach the 30,000-yard mark.
With a short screen pass to running back Eddie Lacy in the fourth quarter of the Green Bay Packers’ Week 6 matchup against the San Diego Chargers, quarterback Aaron Rodgers eclipsed 30,000 passing yards for his career. Rodgers is the fastest player to reach that milestone, in terms of pass attempts, in NFL history.
In an era when prolific passers are taking over the league, Rodgers might have the finest arm of the bunch. He has been named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player twice (2011, 2014) and has a career touchdown-to-interception ratio of four-to-one.
At this rate, Rodgers will rewrite the entire record book before he calls it a career. His performance so far this season has his 6-0 Packers among the favorites to win Super Bowl 50.
