GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers didn’t know at the time that he had tied the Green Bay Packers’ single-game passing yardage record of 480 with nearly four minutes still remaining in Sunday’s win over the Washington Redskins.
And even if he did, it wouldn’t have changed anything.
Rodgers said during his weekly radio show Tuesday on 540 ESPN in Milwaukee that he had no regrets and no issue with the fact that he didn’t throw another pass to break the record.
After Rodgers tied the record -- first set by Matt Flynn in the 2011 regular-season finale -- with a 14-yard completion to James Jones, the Packers ran the ball twice. James Starks was stopped for no gain on first down, and then ran for 13 yards on second down. That took the game to the 2-minute warning, when the Packers could take a knee three times and run out the clock on the 38-20 win.
“If (the record) comes in the flow of the game, awesome,” Rodgers said on his weekly radio show. “If not, you get to the 2-minute warning, James had a great run for a first down, and you kneel on it three times. That’s what you do.”
