The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Featured Player of the Week for Week 16 is quarterback Aaron Rodgers. In Sunday’s 55-7 triumph over the Tennessee Titans, Rodgers racked up three touchdown passes, bringing his passing-TD total to 80 over the past two seasons. His total over the two years is a franchise record, topping the previous record of 77 set by Brett Favre (1995-1996), and is No. 2 in the NFL behind Drew Brees’ 85 TDs (2011-2012).
Rodgers also matched his season high with 342 yards passing (also at St. Louis, Oct. 21, 2012) and did not throw an interception for the third consecutive game. He also rushed for a touchdown.
The Hall of Fame’s Featured Player of the Week program features an exhibit with memorabilia from each week’s game, including a game ball autographed by the selected player or players.
Each week, the game football will be placed on display to be viewed by visitors to the Hall and at the end of the week will be awarded randomly to a Hall of Fame visitor who signed up for the drawing.
Also in the exhibit will be the featured player’s jersey and other potential items including a face mask, shoes, gloves and other equipment.
The exhibit opened September 10 and will continue through the season. Hall of Fame admission is required to see the exhibit, and visitors are able to fill out a drawing form for a chance to win the ball. One drawing ticket will be distributed per each paid admission. Drawing winners will be selected at close of business Saturday and be notified on or before the following Monday.
