Aaron Rodgers now stands alone atop the Green Bay Packers’ leaderboard.
On Christmas Day at Lambeau Field, Rodgers finally passed Brett Favre for first place on the Packers’ all-time passing touchdowns leaderboard. Rodgers hit Allen Lazard for an 11-yard score in the first quarter against the Cleveland Browns, as Lazard’s catch-and-run with a dive over the pylon delivered the score.
Here’s a look at the play and Lazard’s excellent individual effort to get across the goal line for the touchdown:
After the score, the Packers played a video from Favre congratulating Rodgers on breaking his record:
Lazard was sure to hold on to the football, which the Packers stashed in a secure locker on the sideline, to commemorate the historic play. The touchdown gave Rodgers 443 scores in 204 career starts, while Favre achieved his 442 touchdowns in 253 starts in a Packers uniform.
Of more immediate importance, the touchdown also gave the Packers an early 7-6 lead over the Browns in the teams’ Christmas Day meeting.
