Packers’ Aaron Rodgers kicks out Broncos legend John Elway in NFL Top 10 books
Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers just etched his name in the record books after the 37-year-old passed QB legend John Elway for all-time passing yards. On Sunday, the Packers signal-caller was out there doing what he does best as he willed his team to their first win of the season against the Detroit Lions.
And, in doing so, the three-time MVP was able to overtake the Denver Broncos legend who was sitting on 51,475 total passing yards. Rodgers, who was just 97 yards away from the record prior to kick-off, finished with 255 yards on Monday night tallying four TDs and no interceptions. Not a bad way to enter the top ten, A-Rod (via NFL).

The former Super Bowl champ was deep in his bag against the Lions in Week 2. After a disappointing season-opener against the New Orleans Saints, Rodgers and the rest of the squad made sure that their first game in the Lambeau Field this season would end with a W. The nine-time Pro Bowler was feeling it on Monday night and even connected on a huge 50-yarder early in the second half (via Packers).

That’s just what he does.
At the age of 37, a lot of doubt has been thrown at Rodgers’ way but the Green Bay legend continues to prove his haters wrong one snap at a time. He is the reigning MVP for crying out loud. Put some respect on this man’s name.
