Aaron Rodgers Sets Record for Most Passes Sans an Interception

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was close to coming six passes short of setting a new NFL record for most consecutive passes without throwing an interception.

However, after a pass attempt was dropped by Deion Jones a player for the Atlanta Falcons that nearly hit the linebacker in the chest, Rodgers was able to successfully move forward and set the new record.

On his third pass attempt after halftime and 22nd of the day, Rodgers tied the record of 358 straight passes without an interception held by New England’s Tom Brady. On the next pass attempt, Rodgers broke the record.

The 359th consecutive pass by Aaron Rodgers without throwing an interception set the record. It was also a touchdown pass of 24 yards to wide receiver Randall Cobb. That play gave Green Bay a lead in the third quarter of 27-7 over Atlanta in a game the Packers would eventually win 34-20.

Rodgers started Sunday’s game needing 22 pass attempts without throwing an interception to tie the Patriots’ Brady. The potential interception dropped by Jones during the second quarter was Rodgers’ 16th pass attempt of the game. At the end of the game, Rodgers’ streak remained intact at 368.

On a streak as long as the one he is currently on, Rodgers said close calls such as the one that happened on Sunday with Jones are going to happen.

Rodgers finished the game completing 21 of his 32 passes for 196 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Rodgers said last week against Arizona there had been another close call in which he nearly threw an interception but the defender dropped the ball in part because of how damp and cold it had been.

The last time Rodgers threw an interception was during Week 4 of this season versus the Buffalo Bills on a pass that was deflected twice. It is the only interception Rodgers has thrown all season. In comparison, Rodgers has thrown 23 touchdown passes this season with 11 caught by Davante Adams.

Rodgers entered Sunday’s game ranked first in NFL history for touchdown to interception ratio amongst quarterbacks with a minimum of 1,500 pass attempts at 4.25.

The record broken by Rodgers on Sunday was set by Tom Brady across two seasons from 2010 to 2011.
