|Aaron Rodgers has passed for more than 300 yards in both Packers games this season.|
Offensive leader: QB Aaron Rodgers ranks No. 2 in the NFL with a passer rating of 126.4 -- and is coming off his 16th career 300-yard game (308), 28th without an interception, and 27th with a passer rating of better than 100. Rodgers is also the first Packers quarterback to throw for 300 yards or more in each of the first two games of the season. Counting the playoffs, Rodgers has thrown for 300 yards or more, three touchdowns and no INTs nine times since becoming the starter, which is more than any other quarterback over that span.
Defensive leader: CB Charles Woodson posted his sixth career two-INT outing against the Panthers, and five of those performances have come while Woodson was a Packer. Woodson is just the sixth player in Packers history to notch five or more multiple-INT games. Interestingly, the former 1997 Heisman Trophy winner is the only player to intercept another Heisman winner in the NFL, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. He's accomplished that feat four times.
