After he threw for six touchdowns in beating the previously undefeated Texans, you kind of figured Aaron Rodgers would win an award or something.
The league did not disappoint, naming Rodgers the NFC offensive player of the week.
Against the Texans, he became just the third quarterback in league history to complete 60 percent of his passes, with at least 330 yards and six touchdowns, with no picks. While that’s the kind of statistical gymnastics that make my back hurt, when you say he joins a club with Tom Brady and Hall of Famer Y.A. Tittle, it makes more sense.
The award is his seventh overall and second in three weeks.
