Tapp-ing into the Numbers: 40 Packers Stats Until Opening Kickoff (No. 7)

By JERRY TAPP

Any Packers fan knows that interceptions are pretty rare when Aaron Rodgers is at the helm. In fact, in games where Rodgers attempted 20 or more passes, he has 80 games where he did not throw an interception. That ranks fifth on the all-time list of most games with no interceptions (minimum of 20 passes attempted in the game).

Here is the list of 12 quarterbacks who have the most career games with no interceptions (20 pass attempts in the game to qualify).

Tom Brady, 128
Peyton Manning, 104
Brett Favre, 95
Drew Brees, 91
Aaron Rodgers, 80
Dan Marino, 79
John Elway, 77
Drew Bledsoe, 73
Eli Manning, 71
Donovan McNabb, 71
Mark Brunell, 70
Ben Roethlisberger, 70

The Packers are 65-15 (.813 winning percentage) in those games when Rodgers attempted 20 or more passes and did not have an interception.

Here, however, is a pretty amazing stat re: Rodgers. First, Brett Favre leads the NFL with the most games with three or more interceptions, 39. He is followed by Joe Namath (30), Dan Fouts (29), Lynn Dickey (28), Ken Stabler (28), Vinny Testaverde (26), Drew Bledsoe (25) Terry Bradshaw (25), Steve Grogan (25) and Jim Hart (25).

Rodgers has only three games with three or more interceptions in his career. That ranks tied for 200th place among all the quarterbacks in NFL history.
