Packers’ Kevin King isn’t surprised by Aaron Rodgers’ perfect passer rating vs. Raiders
The Green Bay Packers were able to get a winning streak going against the Oakland Raiders thanks to a career day from quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Packers cornerback Kevin King has become accustomed to such performances.
Rodgers tallied six touchdowns while netting a perfect passer rating in their dominant 42-24 win. King says he is used to the future Hall of Famer dialing up such flawless performances in practice, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette:
“He be perfect passer rating all of practice and stuff. Shoot, we see that all the time.”
King’s comments are certainly understandable. As dynamic as Rodgers is known to be during clutch moments, it is safe to assume that practices have become a cakewalk for him at this point in his career. Green Bay’s defense is likely just happy to see him working his magic on the opponent.
Aaron Rodgers was nothing short of spectacular against a Raiders defense that had shown plenty of improvement. He completed 25-of-31 passes for 429 yards and five touchdowns while tacking on another rushing touchdown. He has now become just the seventh player in NFL history to throw for at least five touchdowns for the fifth time in his career.
Of course, Green Bay’s defense played its part in helping to secure the victory. King made sure to get in on the action with three tackles and a crucial interception that helped swing the momentum in their favor. The Packers will be looking to keep it going against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 8.
