Thursday Cheese Curds: Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams aren’t done making history yet

Records are falling like the temperature in Green Bay this season

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

There remains one quarter of the 2020 NFL season to be played and the Green Bay Packers have already seen history made.

Those moments mainly belong to quarterback Aaron Rodgers who recently became the 11th player to throw for over 50,000 yards and just last Sunday threw his 400th touchdown pass.

With four games still to be played, the Packers may not have run out of history quite yet.

Rodgers has four games to throw three touchdowns in at least two of them to surpass his record of 10 three-plus touchdown pass games he set back in 2011. With favorable games against the Detroit Lions this week and the Chicago Bears to close the season, this record very well could fall.

He’ll need to do it at least once if he also wants to top his team record 45 touchdown passes in a single season. He’s currently at 36.

Meanwhile, Davante Adams can make history of his own should he catch a touchdown on Sunday. That would make eight straight games for him with at least once touchdown catch which would break the record he shares with Don Hutson. Not bad company for Adams to be in at all.

While both Adams and Rodgers would certainly trade records for a ring, this serves as a reminder on just how special this Packers season has been despite everything going on in the world.

In today’s curds, we look at the history yet to come for Green Bay plus enjoy some more schadenfreude at the hands of the Bears.

Yo dawg, I hear you like broken records. So we’re going to sound like a broken record by talking about all the records Rodgers and Adams could break.

Not to be outdone by his quarterback and star receiver, the Packers’ head coach has made some history of his own.

For all the talk about a lack of weapons outside of Adams, the Packers have definitely developed a decent bunch of targets even if they can be a little inconsistent at times (looking at you, MVS). Robert Tonyan meanwhile looks like a legitimate TE1.

Sorry Mitch, but yeah you do and did. Your poor play is what created the narrative to begin with.
