Aaron Rodgers named NFC Offensive Player of the Month

For the second time this season, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Month.

Rodgers has won four Offensive Player of the Month awards and is on a three-month winning streak dating back to December-January of 2010.

In four games during October, Rodgers completed 97-of-136 pass attempts (71.3%) for 1,455 yards with 12 touchdowns and two interceptions.

For the season, Rodgers has completed 71.5 percent of his 239 pass attempts for 2,372 yards with 20 touchdowns and three interceptions.

Dating back to last December, a span of 11 regular season games, Rodgers has passed for 3,349 yards with 28 touchdowns and five interceptions.

Add in his remarkable postseason, Rodgers has completed 69.8 percent of his 477 pass attempts for 4,443 yards with 37 touchdowns and seven interceptions for a 118.8 passer rating during his last 15 contests.

QB rating/yards per attempt: At 125.7, Rodgers’ top rating is 21.3 points ahead the next in line – Tom Brady.  At a best 9.93 yards per toss, Rodgers is ahead 1.10 yards of the second-rated quarterback – Eli Manning.

With that said, it’s impressive to see Aaron take risks downfield, while at the same time maintaining pinpoint accuracy.  Also, it’s a tribute to the plethora of big-play receivers that he possesses at his disposal – an arsenal of riches when you consider his own scintillating skill set.
