As productive as QB Aaron Rodgers has been during the regular season in his five years as the starter, he has also carried that over to the playoffs. Rodgers capped off the 2010 postseason with a 304-yard, three-TD effort vs. Pittsburgh that earned him Super Bowl XLV honors. He became just the fourth quarterback in NFL history to throw for 300 yards and three TDs in a Super Bowl, joining Joe Montana, Steve Young and Jake Delhomme.
Rodgers has posted a 110-plus passer rating in four of his six career postseason starts. That already ties him for fourth in league history behind only Montana (six in 23 starts), Brett Favre (five in 24 starts) and Tom Brady (five in 22 starts).
Rodgers threw for 1,094 yards in the 2010 postseason, good for No. 3 in NFL history behind only Eli Manning’s 1,219 passing yards with the Giants in 2011 and Warner’s 1,147 yards with Arizona in 2008. Rodgers’ nine TDs in 2010 tied him for No. 3 in NFL postseason history behind only Montana (1989) and Warner (2008), who threw for 11 TDs each.
With his three-TD passing performance at Atlanta in the NFC Divisional Playoff, Rodgers brought his TD total in his first three playoff games to 10, the most in NFL history. That topped the mark of nine held by Jeff George, Daryle Lamonica and Dan Marino in their first three playoff starts.
Rodgers holds both of the top single-game passing yardage marks in postseason history with a 423-yard outing at Arizona in the 2009 postseason and a 366-yard effort in 2010 at Atlanta.
