For the fourth consecutive time, dating back to last December, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been named the “NFC Offensive Player of the Month.”
Rodgers is the first player to win one of the league’s monthly awards four consecutive times. He has won it all three months thus far in 2011, putting him three-quarters of the way to an unprecedented season sweep.
For November, Rodgers completed 72.4 percent of his passes (89 of 123) for 1,203 yards with 13 touchdowns and one interception. That produced a 131.6 passer rating, the highest of any month in his career.
His completion percentage, touchdowns, TD/INT ratio and rating all led the league for November, as the Packers improved to 11-0.
For the season, Rodgers ranks first in the NFL in completion percentage (71.8), yards per attempt (9.6), touchdowns (33), interception percentage (1.1) and passer rating (127.7), the latter figure still on pace to set a league record for a single season.
He also ranks first in the league in fewest interceptions (four) among quarterbacks still starting for their teams. Oakland’s Jason Campbell (injured) also has four interceptions while Minnesota’s Donovan McNabb (replaced) has just two.
Rodgers has yet to post a quarterback rating below 110 in any game this season.
He has now won the “NFC Offensive Player of the Month” award five times in his career. In addition to his four straight, he also won it in October of 2009. Additional coverage - Dec. 1
