For a game that has been eight shades of ugly, the Green Bay Packers found a way to make some history in an otherwise shaky performance.
As the second quarter wound down, Davante Adams caught his 489th pass which moved him past Don Hutson for fifth all-time in Packers history. He now trails Donald Driver, Sterling Sharpe, Jordy Nelson and James Lofton. Driver leads the group with 743 catches while Lofton is the next up for Adams to catch with 530.
It’s a remarkable feat considering Adams is only in his seventh season and wasn’t even a fully featured part of the offense until 2016. The best part is Adams’ assault on the record books doesn’t look like it’s ready to slow down in the slightest.
Not to be outdone, Aaron Rodgers also passed Warren Moon for 11th on the list for the most passing yards in NFL history. Next up on the list is John Elway in 10th and at the half Rodgers trailed the Denver Broncos legend by just over 2,000 yards.
If it doesn’t happen this year, Rodgers will certainly enter the top ten next season adding one more impressive credential to a first-ballot hall of fame career.
The Packers are struggling with a poor Jacksonville Jaguars team, but at least some players are making history. Fans don’t care how you made history, they just care that you did it.
