PACKERSTATS-Game #7-2019 season

Here are some of the numbers that helped define the Packers 42-24 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, October 21 at Lambeau Field.

  • Aaron Rodgers was the star of the game completing 25 of 31 passes (80.6%) for 429 yards and five TD passes. He became the fourth QB in NFL history to have five TD passes, over 400 yards passing and complete 80% of his passes in a game. The last player to reach these numbers was Deshaun Watson for Houston two weeks ago. Prior to that, Ben Roethlisberger did it on October 26, 2014 with the Steelers, and Drew Brees was the first QB to reach these numbers in a game on December 18, 2011 for the Saints.
  • Rodgers is now one of five QBs to have five or more games with five or more TDs with no interceptions. Brees tops this list with seven such games followed by Tom Brady with six games. Rodgers is tied with Peyton Manning and Roethlisberger with five games with five or more TDs and no interceptions.
  • Rodgers became the first GB quarterback to have a perfect 158.3 Passer Rating in a game. Rodgers has had a Passer Rating of 132 or above in 24 regular season games. The Packers are 24-0 in those games.
  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling had two receptions for 133 yards. He became the 14th player in NFL history to have 130 or more receiving yards in a game with only two catches. The others on this list: Tavon Austin (the last to accomplish this feat back in 2013), Pierre Garcon, Calvin Johnson, Johnnie Morton, Willie Gault, James Scott, Roger Carr, Isaac Bruce, Lance Rentzel, Homer Jones, Dick Dorsey, Del Shofner and Ollie Matson.
  • Green Bay is now 88-93-3 (.486) in regular season games versus AFC teams since 1970 (the AFC-NFC merger). They are 52-39-2 (.570) since 1970 in home games versus AFC teams.
  • The Packers have now won nine straight home games against AFC West teams.
  • Rodgers is now 8-2 (.800) with a Passer Rating of 114.1 against the AFC West in his career. It is the highest winning percentage and Passer Rating against any of the eight divisions.
  • Green Bay had a 21-10 lead at halftime. Green Bay is 42-3 (.933) since 2000 in home games when they tally 20 or more points in the first half.
  • Rodgers had a rushing TD in the game. It was the 26th regular season game where he had at least one rushing TD. The Pack is 15-11 in those games. This was the second game of his career where he accounted for six TDs (five TD passes/one TD run). On October 2, 2011 in a game versus the Denver Broncos, he had four TD passes and two TD runs.
  • The Packers did not have a turnover in the game and is now 23-3-2 (.857) in home games since 2010 when they did not commit a turnover in a game.
  • Green Bay is now 6-1 on the 2019 season. It is their first time at 6-1 since 2015. Prior to this season, the Packers started 6-1 in 14 seasons in their history. In two of those seasons they won the Super Bowl, and in four of those seasons they won an NFL title (pre-Super Bowl).

NFL teams are a combined 26-55 (.321) in games where they pass for over 400 yards and have 60 or fewer rushing yards in the same game.
