Aaron Charles Rodgers (born December 2, 1983) is an American football quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL). Rodgers played college football for California, where he set several career passing records, including lowest single-season and career interception rates. He was selected in the first round (24th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Packers.
After backing up Brett Favre for the first three years of his NFL career, Rodgers became the Green Bay Packers’ starting quarterback in 2008 and led them to a victory in Super Bowl XLV after the 2010 NFL season; Rodgers was named Super Bowl MVP. He was named Associated Press Athlete of the Year in 2011, as well as being voted league MVP by the Associated Press for the 2011 and 2014 NFL seasons. Rodgers has led the NFL three times in touchdown-to-interception ratio (2011, 2012, 2014); twice in passer rating (2011, 2012), touchdown passing percentage (2011, 2012), and lowest passing interception percentage (2009, 2014); and once in touchdown passes (2016) and yards per attempt (2011).
Aaron Rodgers completed 33-of-50 passes for 343 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Week 2 against the Falcons.
Rodgers became the fastest to 300 touchdowns in NFL history with the performance. He rebounded from a turnover-filled first half, including a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. Rodgers was playing without both his starting tackles, and Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb left with injuries. There’s been some shaky stretches over Rodgers’ first two games, but his stats have been on point. Rodgers gets a matchup with the Bengals in Week 3
