Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams have been the beating heart of the Green Bay Packers’ offense for practically the entire 2020 season, and both have been duly rewarded with Pro Bowl and All-Pro nods on top of record-setting statistical accomplishments.

With Saturday’s victory over the Los Angeles Rams, they can add two more noteworthy accolades to their highly decorated seasons. Both Rodgers and Adams moved to the top of the Packers’ career leaderboards for postseason passing and receiving yards.

Rodgers completed 23 of 36 passes for 296 yards on Saturday, giving him 5,323 career postseason passing yards. That surpasses Brett Favre’s total of 5,311, compiled over 22 postseason games from 1992-2007. Rodgers passed Favre in just his 19th playoff start.

Adams, meanwhile, caught nine passes for 66 yards and a score, giving him a career total of 753 receiving yards in nine career playoff games. Antonio Freeman, the previous record holder, managed 748 receiving yards in 14 playoff games with the Packers.

Both players will have an opportunity to add to their franchise-leading marks next Sunday, when the Packers host the NFC Championship Game at 2:05 PM Central Time.
