GREEN BAY — Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was voted by fans as the FedEx Air Player of the Week for his performance against the Oakland Raiders in Week 7.
In Green Bay’s 42-24 triumph over the Raiders, Rodgers posted the maximum passer rating of 158.3, completing 25-of-31 for 429 yards with five TDs. He also rushed for a sixth touchdown.
It was Rodgers’ first perfect passer rating as well as the first in franchise history, and the fourth game for Rodgers with a rating of 150-plus in his career. It was also his 10th career 400-yard passing game (including playoffs) and the fifth time he has thrown five or more TD passes.
