Aaron Rodgers joins an exclusive group of quarterbacks with 500 career touchdown passes


Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, has added a new achievement to his long list of professional triumphs and prizes. In Sunday’s 27-24 overtime victory over the New England Patriots for the Packers, Rodgers connected with Romeo Doubs to become the sixth player in NFL history to throw for 500 career touchdown passes (including postseason). After the game, Rodgers stated, “Yeah, it’s a huge number. That many touchdowns is impressive. I’m not sure I can name them all. I think I can name most of them.” Rodgers joined Hall of Famers Brett Favre (552 touchdown passes), Peyton Manning (579), Drew Brees (608), and all-time leading scorer Tom Brady, who has 713 touchdown passes as of Sunday, when he connected with Doubs for his second TD throw of the game in the fourth quarter.
