Aaron Rodgers going for consistency, not records

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Someday, a Packers quarterback may reclaim the career record for touchdown passes that now belongs to Peyton Manning. It'll take a while for Aaron Rodgers to get close to the 510 touchdown throws - and counting - Denver's quarterback has. But if Rodgers keeps shredding defenses like he has over the last month, he may very well have a shot. Even Manning...

ORLANDO, Fla.
