One week ago, Aaron Rodgers eclipsed 50,000 passing yards in his NFL career. Today, against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback hit another major career milestone.

Rodgers’ third touchdown pass of the game gives him 400 such throws in his regular season career. Rodgers is now the seventh player in NFL history to hit 400 passing touchdowns, joining the following other quarterbacks:

  • Tom Brady (569)
  • Drew Brees (565)
  • Peyton Manning (539)
  • Brett Favre (508)
  • Dan Marino (420)
  • Philip Rivers (415)

Rodgers’ 400th score was a 9-yard pass to Davante Adams, who caught his 52nd career touchdown from number 12 and his second of the night. Adams previously caught touchdown number 398 in the first quarter, while number 399 went to Robert Tonyan. Adams trails only Jordy Nelson in terms of the number of touchdowns he has caught from Rodgers, as Nelson holds the record with 65.

Rodgers reached 400 scoring passes faster than any other quarterback in history, doing so in his 193rd career game. Perhaps even more impressive than that, however, is the fact that he reached that mark with just 88 career interceptions. That number is less than half of any other member of the 400-TD club, as Brady’s 190 is the next-lowest. With his second scoring throw to Tonyan, Rodgers also became the first quarterback to record 35 touchdown passes in five different seasons.

Congratulations to Rodgers on this accomplishment, which comes just four days after his 37th birthday on Wednesday!
