It seemed like only a matter of time before quarterback Aaron Rodgers started to catch up to Brett Favre regarding Green Bay Packers' franchise records. The reigning NFL MVP has a chance to overtake the legend in passing touchdowns on Sunday given he can throw at least four of them.
Of course, Rodgers' NFL career truly started when he became the Packers' starting quarterback in 2008, following Favre's short-lived retirement. He has been chasing his predecessor ever since and is on the cusp of breaking the passing TD record despite playing in 40+ fewer games than Favre.
The nine-time Pro Bowler remains almost seven thousand yards behind the Hall of Famer in terms of yardage, yet Rodgers has always had a knack of getting into the end zone. He has tossed 4 touchdowns in two of his last three games and owns a 2-1 record against the Baltimore Ravens.
There's an outside chance Rodgers can reset the record book in Week 15 going up against an injured Baltimore secondary. The Ravens will be without starting safety Chuck Clark and have posted Football Outsiders' seventh-worst pass defense DVOA rating in the NFL. Overall, this is a defense that has given up 21 passing touchdowns to opposing QBs through 13 games played (T-No. 18 in NFL).
All eyes will be on Rodgers this Sunday as he attempts cement his legacy within this storied franchise. Meanwhile, the Packers will look to stay atop the NFC Conference when they take on the Ravens and head into that game as 7-point road favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
