Rodgers named NFC Offensive Player of Week Submitted: 10/17/2012
GREEN BAY - Quarterback Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers, safety Antrel Rolle of the New York Giants and kicker Jason Hanson of the Detroit Lions are the NFC Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Players of the Week.

Rodgers completed 24 of 37 passes (64.9 percent) for 338 yards with six touchdowns and no interceptions for a 133.8 passer rating in the Packers' 42-24 win at Houston.

He is the first player in NFL history with six TD passes against an undefeated team with at least five wins.


Rodgers had at least one touchdown pass in all four quarters. He threw three TDs to Jordy Nelson, two to James Jones and one to Tom Crabtree.

Rodgers is one of only three quarterbacks in NFL history to complete at least 60 percent of his passes with at least 330 yards and six touchdowns without an interception. He joins Tom Brady and Pro Football Hall of Famer Y.A. Tittle as the only QBs to accomplish the feat.

He is the first player in franchise history with six touchdowns and no interceptions in a game.
