Aaron Rodgers throws for 335 yards in first half

The NFL’s single-game passing yardage record has stood for more than 60 years.

Aaron Rodgers needs 220 passing yards in the final two quarters to take it for his own.

Rodgers had a dominant first half against Washington, completing 26-of-31 passes for 335 yards with three touchdowns as Green Bay broke out to a 24-0 halftime lead.

The single-game passing record was set by Rams quarterback Norm Van Brocklin in 1951, who threw for 554 yards against the New York Yanks.

Wide receiver James Jones was Rodgers’ favorite target in the first half, hauling in nine receptions for 152 yards. About the only blemish on Jones’ remarkable first half was a fumble that became a touchback late in the second quarter.

The question now is how much more Green Bay will throw in a game that appears within its control. Nevertheless, Rodgers’ first-half performance was a memorable one — simply exceptional quarterbacking.

  1. What a vendetta the league crooks have against the Redskins. From unfairly taking our cap money, to allowing their flagship player/Quarterback in RGIII get hit late to trying to change our historic name. Why won’t Roger Goodell just publically announce his hatred for Dan Snyder? We can’t compete if the powers at be have already decided they don’t want the Redskins to compete in anyway. Don’t even play the games if you already have your predetermined favorite. I’m going to watch sports that aren’t predetemined like Baseball the rest of this day. #FixedLeagueisFixed

  2. Congratulations to the Rams and their fans on the top 10 pick next year.

    As to Aaron Rodgers, I said it before but if Joe Flacco is worth $20 million a season Rodgers deserves $100 million a season. He will challenge Peyton and Brady as the best QB of our time.

    Screencap these rankings for these next 2-3 weeks. It’s the last few times you will see the Redskins in the double digits in the RGIII Era. The rust was off in the 2nd half and as RGIII himself said, “We played a terrible 1st half and STILL almost won.” The Redskins are the most resilient group in football. We never say die. Playoffs and Superbowls to come. #GreenBayisinDeepTroublenextgame

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

  5. If Gabbert throws 335 in two games, it means Gabbert had one heck of a two game relatively speaking. For Rodgers, someday he is going to beat this record as well.

    Rodgy is a great QB. Too bad he is such an unlikable,smug idiot….

    ————

    Your envy of all things Rodgers is hilarious and sad.

  7. One of the great QBs of all time………..Just makes me cringe to think the Raiders passsed him over for someone not even projected to be take in the first two rounds. UGH !!

  9. The Washington football club’s back-up kicker is a accurate as their quarterback. Can you blame people for being offended by that name? Would you want your heritage associated with this team?

  10. @logicalvoicesays

    We can’t compete . . . Uh, you can stop there !

    Man, You guys sure a building a great team . . for the Rams.

  12. Sorry, but the refs dont play defense, Aaron Rodgers is carving you guys up, and RG3 cant move the ball. All that yik-yak logicalvoice was saying in preseason and now crying #conspiracy. RG3 threw a Subway pitch line to Togo’s to the house today also. #withthe#1pickofthe2014nfldraftthewashintonredskinsselect……..

  13. Wow, what a beat down. How embarrassing! No D, and RG3 is looking lost. Well the haters might hate, but I beginning to see their point. Back to the cellar we go skins fans. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Congrats GB. Your QB looks unstoppable.

  14. Rodgers will settle for 480. This with them bagging off for most the second half trying to kill the clock. If the Packers kept with the game plan from the first half Rodgers would’ve crushed the record. Man, the Potato Skins have a cheap and horrid secondary.

    Lambs will blow the picks anyway, see Eric Dickerson.

    Besides Redskins have there cap space back next season and will sign good players to compliment a healthy RGIII, not one playing a on 1 leg. Patience Skins fans.

  16. Dom should’ve let the defense loose in the 3rd/4th qt – let Clay and ’em pad their stats.

    Instead – 3 man rush, everyone back up and let ’em catch – then tackle ’em plan – ugh!

  17. In defense of logicalvoicesays, he did promise a BurgundyandGold beat down. He just failed to realize that it was the Burgundy and Gold that would receive the beat down. Of course, he claims that Little Danny is the greatest owner in sports. Shouldn’t the greatest owner in sports have a facility that won’t get the players hurt? And while we’re at it, shouldn’t the “greatest team ever” have plenty of worth candidates for their Wall of Fame and not have to clutter it up with, I don’t know, PA announcers, or trainers, or QBs with losing records, or county politicians?

  18. the packers won a game against the Redskins.. please.. a team with a coach that wants to destroy his own starting QB. Washington needs a coach that wants to win games NOT be bigger than his QB

  19. @chi01town,

    And you BARELY won a game at the last few seconds against a terrible Viking team, AT home! Don’t act so ignorant. You have no ground to stand on. Just like last year, enjoy your couple weeks in 1st place. You know in the back of your mind, just like every other Bear fan, that when the time comes to play us, you WON’T win. History proves it. We are the better team. And no arena league coach is going to change that anytime soon. Keep sounding like a troll though. Because just like last year, when we swept your pathetic team and I came looking for you on here for an argument, you were curled up underneath your bed, cursing the packers.

    Go back to seaworld!
