Aaron Rodgers may need to start calling his shot a lot more often.
Aaron Rodgers had a game to remember when he took the field against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
The Green Bay Packers was feeling good that day. So good, that he walked over to head coach LaFleur and told him he wanted five touchdowns before the game.
LaFleur stated he wanted six.
Three hours later and Rodgers had thrown for five touchdowns, ran for another, and had his first ever perfect passer rating of 158.3 as the Packers improved to 6-1 with the 42-24 victory over Oakland.
“I feel like this has been coming, I really do,” Aaron Rodgers said.
“I feel like we’ve been building and I’ve been feeling a lot more comfortable, and Matt’s been feeling more comfortable with him calling it for me and feeling when I’m in that rhythm and when to be aggressive and when to pull back.”
What made his performance even more magical is that he did it without his top offense weapon in Davante Adams, as he spread the ball around to eight different targets in throwing for 429 yards.
Next up, a trip to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs.
