Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, who has been on quite a roll the past month, was named the NFC’s Offensive Player in Week 13 by the NFL. Rodgers won the honor after completing 21-of-30 passes (70 percent) for 298 yards and three touchdowns and zero interceptions for a 135.1 passer rating in the Packers’ 34-16 win over San Francisco.

Rodgers threw two long TD passes — to WRs Donald Driver (61 yards) and Greg Jennings (57) — only the second time a player had two 50-yard TD passes in a December game at Lambeau Field (Brett Favre was the first in 1998).

Rodgers, who has posted a passer rating greater than 110.0 in four consecutive games, joins Favre and WR Antonio Freeman as the only offensive players in franchise history to be named both Player of the Week and Player of the Month by the league.
