During the Green Bay Packers current 13-game winning streak that includes the last two games of the 2010 regular season, four 2010 playoffs wins and seven straight wins to start this season, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has compiled some very impressive numbers. Here’s a look at some of those stats.

1. Rodgers has completed 304 of 435 passes, a completion rate of 69.8%, in his last 13 games. He has completed 60% or more of his passes in 12 of the 13 games. The lone under 60% game was a 56.7% completion rate versus the Bears in last year’s NFC Championship Game.

2. The Rodgers-led Packers have averaged 31.2 points per game during the streak.

3. Rodgers has had a passer rating of 110 or more in 11 of the 13 contests. The two games under 110 were both against the Chicago Bears: 89.7 in the last regular season game of 2010; 55.4 in the 2010 NFC title game.

4. During the 13-game winning streak Rodgers has thrown 34 touchdown passes and had only six interceptions. He has thrown two or more TDs in 11 of the 13 games; the only games where he threw only one or no TDs were against… you guessed it… the Bears. Four of his six interceptions in these 13 games have come against… you guessed it… the Bears.

5. He has scored four rushing touchdowns in the 13 games. He has rushed 52 times for 176 yards.

6. Rodgers has thrown for over 4,000 yards in the 13 games (4,093 to be exact), an average of about 315 yards per game. He has thrown for 300 or more yards in eight of the 13 games. His lowest number of passing yards during the streak was 180 against the… Philadelphia Eagles in the 2010 Wild Card Game… (thought it was the Bears, didn’t ya?).

  1. Great article Jerry…..and after AR’s play in the SD game, it makes one to ponder the question, “Brett who?”

    1. Bill:

      Thanks for the comments. I have to admit that I was one of those people that thought the Packers should have let Favre leave when he was ready and on his terms. I honestly didn’t think that Rodgers would be this good, but he has been better than advertised. Let’s hope he can stay healthy like Favre. Makes you wonder what Matt Flynn would be like if he had a few games under his belt.

  2. Good point about Flynn – he stands to make a few dollars next year.

    Re: Favre – no one, repeat no one, is greater than the team. Even Brett Favre. The best interview I saw during Favre’s final saga with the Packers was one with Paul Hornung, when asked what Lombardi would do with Favre, replied, “After Lombardi was done kicking his ass, he would cut him”. Guess that sums up my feelings too about the guy. Of course, his actions in NY and MN confirmed what he really was.
