The Green Bay Packers set multiple team records in Sunday’s 38-20 victory over the Washington Redskins.
Aaron Rodgers and James Starks became the first players in Packers history to combine for 400 yards passing and 100 yards rushing.
“We were able to catch the ball well, had yards after the catch and we were able to run the ball better than we have in a long time,” Rodgers said.
Starks rushed for 132 yards and one touchdown, becoming the first Packer to hit the 100-yard mark since Brandon Jackson did against the Redskins in 2010.
Rodgers passed for 480 yards and four touchdowns, tying Matt Flynn for an all-time Packers record for yards passing in a regular-season game.
“You know, he spoils me. He makes it look easy,”Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.
“No doubt, Aaron is a special football player. He’s at the point of his career where he is about making other people better, pulling everybody up.”
After being shutout a week ago in San Francisco, James Jones caught 11 passes for 178 yards.
The Packers (1-1)travel Cincinnati next weekend.
