Aaron Rodgers on the Verge of Interesting Historical Milestone

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has thrown 297 touchdown passes in his career. His third touchdown pass of the 2017 season will put him at 300.

That will make Rodgers the 11th player in NFL history to hit that milestone. However, Rodgers will be the only one to hit it with fewer than 100 interceptions. Rodgers has thrown just 72 career interceptions.

Here’s a look at the other guys in the 300 touchdown club and how many interceptions they had thrown at the time they hit the 300 mark. Total touchdowns are followed by interceptions when they hit 300.

  1. Peyton Manning: 539 (152)
  2. Brett Favre: 508 (175)
  3. Drew Brees: 465 (154)
  4. Tom Brady: 456 (115)
  5. Dan Marino: 420 (169)
  6. Fran Tarkenton: 342 (219)
  7. Eli Manning: 320 (205)
  8. Philip Rivers: 314 (146)
  9. Ben Roethlisberger: 301 (160)
  10. John Elway: 300 (226)

Tom Brady was the only quarterback who was relatively near 100 interceptions at the time he hit 300 touchdowns.

Rodgers is going to better that mark by a wide margin.

Joseph is a fiction writer when he isn't doing this. In his spare time he likes to do manly things like drink beer and procreate.

    43 less interceptions than the next guy in line. Nice job 12.

    That good but I don’t see any rings on his fingers to prove anything except that he knows how to throw touchdown passes so don’t the others

      Don’t have the rings right? All of Rodgers 7 playoff loses the defense averages 36 PPG while the offense averages about 26ppg. All playoff games included defense gives up 25ppg while the offense averages 26ppg. Lets look at TB – Playoff loses – defense gives up 26ppg while the offense averages 17ppg. Total playoff games – defense gives up 20ppg while the offense averages 26ppg. Tom Brady has scored less than 20 points 9 times, while Aaron has never scored less than twenty points. I am done ranting about player vs player when championships are won by a team, not an individual. Individual wise – Rodgers has Brady on his knees blowing him.

    The amazing thing about that is if you get the TD/INT ratio while at 300 TDs, some of the guys are in the 1’s. Some are in the 2’s. NO ONE is in the 3’s. Rodgers is over 4. That’s domination. That’s taking care of the ball and putting your team in the best possible situation to win the game.

    Rodgers’ accomplishment is very impressive. He has has done this at the beginning of his career. It is not entirely unprecedented, though. In his last 9 full seasons (the same number as Rodgers has started) Brady has 309 TDs and 74 INTs. He is not on this streak at the beginning of his career but Rodgers did have 3 years on the bench to hone his skills.
