It’s beginning to look like a broken record. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Month for October. This is Rodgers’ fourth career Player of the Month Award and third in a row. He joins Pro Football Hall of Famer Barry Sanders as the only players to be named Offensive Player of the Month in three consecutive month.
Rodgers led the Packers to a 4-0 record and completed 97 of 136 passes (71.3%) for 1,455 yards with 12 touchdowns and two interceptions for an NFL-best 129.4 passer rating.
In all four October games, Rodgers had at least 300 yards passing, two or more touchdowns and a 110+ passer rating. He has posted a passer rating of at least 110 in every game this year and is the first player in NFL history with a 110+ rating in each of the first seven games to start a season. Rodgers is already drawing mention as the odds on favorite to win the NFL MVP Award. Rodgers was asked about that yesterday.
