Davante Adams, Aaron Jones and Marquez Valdes-Scantling all found the end zone on Sunday as Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes in Green Bay’s victory over the Baltimore Ravens. In the process Rodgers tied Brett Favre’s mark of 442 touchdown passes.
“It means a lot,” Rodgers told Erin Andrews after the game. “It’s been a special run for me to follow up a legend. Hopefully, I can break that record at home on Christmas next week.”
That chance will come against the Cleveland Browns on National Television next Saturday.
Favre, whose relationship with Rodgers has grown stronger over the years, took to Twitter to congratulate Rodgers and to tell him to “keep going” before appearing on his siriusXM show to hand out some big time praise. “He’s better now then he’s ever been” Favre said before calling Rodgers “Probably, the best playmaker that I think we have ever seen.” You can watch Favre’s full comments on Rodgers below.
Favre threw 442 touchdown passes and 286 interceptions in 255 games with the Packers. Rodgers has thrown 442 touchdown passes and 93 interceptions in 210 games. It’s unbelievable and nearly unfathomable are most fan bases to imagine the type of production that Green Bay fans have been able to enjoy your over the past 30 years.
