    Passer rating: Through 7 games, Rodgers has a passer rating of 125.7, which would break Peyton Manning's single-season mark he set in 2004. Remarkably, Rodgers' lowest rating in a game this season was 111.4 at Chicago in Week 3, in which he had an interception that Urlacher snatched, and which knocked off about 10 from his passer rating that game.

    Completion percentage: Rodgers has connected on 71.5% of his passes, which would break Drew Brees' single-season mark of 70.6% set in 2009. It would also break Brett Favre's team record of 66.5% set in 2007.

    Touchdowns: Rodgers leads the NFL with 20 touchdown passes and is on pace to throw 46 TDs. That mark would break Favre's single-season Packers' mark of 39 set in 1996 and rank fourth all time.

    Yards: Rodgers is on pace to throw for 5,422 yards, which would shatter Dan Marino's NFL record of 5,084 set in 1984, and Lynn Dickey's Green Bay record of 4,458 set in 1983. Brees is on pace for 5,492, and he and Rodgers could have an interesting race down the stretch.

    In addition, Rodgers is averaging an NFL-best 9.92 yards per passing attempt and has thrown just 3 interceptions (2 of which were off receivers hands).

    Green Bay may be putting on the field the most efficient passing attack in NFL history. The Packers currently have an 81.8 percent pass offense DVOA, which means that their passing game has been 81.8 percent more efficient than the average passing game of the past decade. We have DVOA ratings going back to 1992, and in that 20-year span, Green Bay has the highest rating for any pass offense through eight weeks of a season, just ahead of the 2007 Patriots, who were at 80.0 percent. Aaron Rodgers is on pace to set all-time records for yardage, passer rating and completion percentage.
