Aaron Rodgers set an NFL record Sunday in keeping the Green Bay Packers perfect on the season.
Rodgers threw for 335 yards and three touchdowns as the Packers remained the only undefeated team in the league with a 33-27 victory at Minnesota.
He had a quarterback rating of 146.5, becoming the first quarterback to compile a passer rating of at least 110 in in the first seven games...
GREEN BAY, Wis. It will take quite the performance for Minnesota Vikings rookie Christian Ponder to be the best quarterback on the field Sunday in his starting debut against Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers and the undefeated Green Bay Packers.
With the Vikings off to a 1-5 start and veteran Donovan McNabb leading the passing offense to the second-lowest yardage in the league, Minnesota...

Loaded with three timeouts, a two-minute drill...

James Starks also had a solid game with 75 yards rushing on 13 carries (5.8 ypc) and he also caught 3 passes for 24 yards (8.0 avg). Ryan Grant pitched in with 29 yards rushing...
The Minnesota Vikings (1-5) made the move from Donovan McNabb (94-156, 1,026 yards, 4 TD, 2 INT) to Christian Ponder (9-17, 99 yards before Sunday’s start) in the blink of an eye last Sunday as McNabb self-destructed in the second half of the game. The team announced Ponder as their official starter just two days later. Now it’s up to Ponder to save the second half of the season...
