GREEN BAY (Press Release) - Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for the 2nd time this season and 4th time in the last 9 weeks of football.  Rodgers became the first player in NFL history with 400 passing yards (408), four passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in a game in the Packers' 49-23 win over Denver.  He completed 29 of 38 passes (76.3 percent) for 408 yards with four touchdowns and one interception for a 134.5 passer rating. He also rushed for 36 yards and two scores.

For the third season in a row, Rodgers has recorded a passer rating of at least 110 in four consecutive games. No other quarterback since the 1970 merger has posted two consecutive seasons with four 110+ passer rating games in a row.  Rodgers has 1,325 passing yards, the most in franchise history through the first four games of a season. He is the only player in team history to throw for 12 touchdowns and rush for two scores in the first four games of a season. 

In his seventh season from California, this is Rodgers' fourth career Player of the Week Award. Rodgers and Brett Favre (12) are the only quarterbacks in team history to win the award at least four times.
