GREEN BAY, Wis. – Inexperienced Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made historical past along with his second landing cross of Sunday’s recreation in opposition to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Together with his 1-yard scoring toss to Randall Cobb with 4:46 left within the third quarter, Rodgers has thrown 420 profession landing passes. The second landing cross of the day to Cobb tied Corridor of Famer Dan Marino for sixth on the NFL’s all-time checklist.
Rodgers had an opportunity to make extra historical past. With yet another landing cross, he may have handed Marino and tied Philip Rivers for fifth all-time. As a substitute, he overshot a possible landing to Robert Tonyan halfway via the fourth quarter. Regardless, with three complete touchdowns, the Packers beat the Steelers 27-17 for his or her third consecutive win.
Tom Brady (591 and counting), Drew Brees (571), Peyton Manning (539) and Brett Favre (508) high the NFL’s all-time checklist for landing passes.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger began the day with 399 profession landing passes. He joined the 400-touchdown membership on the opening possession.
