Rodgers Throws For 480 Yards, Packers Roll Past Redskins

Packers_Aaron_Rodgers_1 [1]Aaron Rodgers led the Green Bay Packers’ offense to a record-setting day.

Rodgers was 34 for 42 for a career-high 480 yards and four touchdowns, receiver James Jones had a career-best 178 yards and James Starks ran for 132 yards and a score in a 38-20 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers’ big day against the Redskins was only good enough to tie his former backup, Matt Flynn, for the most passing yards by a Packers QB in a game.

“We were able to catch the ball well, had yards after the catch and we were able to run the ball better than we have in a long time,” Rodgers said.

Rodgers’ 480 yards passing tied a franchise record set by former teammate Matt Flynn on Jan. 1, 2012, against the Lions.

Sunday was also the first time that the Packers had a 400-yard passer and a 100-yard rusher in the same game.
