Stat Line of the Night — 9/15/2013 — Aaron Rodgers
During yesterday’s game against the Washington Redskins, James Starks ended the Green Bay Packers’ record of 44 games without a 100-yard rusher by galloping for 132 yards on the ground. You’d think that would mean Aaron Rodgers was a lot less busy than usual, but that was far from the case. Rather, Rodgers couldn’t have been any busier, as he completed 34 of his 42 pass attempts to tie the Packers’ record for most passing yards in a single game, with 480 (originally set by Matt Flynn back in 2011).
Rodgers also tossed four touchdowns and finished with a quarterback rating of 146.0 during the Packers’ 38-20 victory over the Redskins. He and Starks would also become the first quarterback and running back in Packers history to throw and rush for 400 and 100 yards, respectively, in the same game. And they even became the first teammates in NFL history to throw for over 450 yards and rush for more than 125 yards in a single game. Those records, along with the victory, earn Rodgers “The Stat Line of the Night” for Sunday, September 15, 2013.
