Packers Head Coach LaFleur on Rodgers' success at 37; 'I don't know how he does it'
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers celebrated another milestone on Wednesday, Dec. 2. The two-time MVP turned 37 but when he's on the field he seems to prove age is just a number.
Rodgers is just one of the Packers most unforgettable players, and he leads the team into an unforgettable stretch. Lambeau Field has been Rodgers' playground in December.
In his career, Rodgers has only lost three December games at home. He's also had 50,000 career passing yards last week, and he could reach 400 touchdown passes this week.
Rodgers will become the fastest to get to 400 touchdowns in the history of the NFL. He's been doing it recently while picking up a new offensive scheme from second year coach Matt LaFleur.
"I don't know how he does it, but he's doing it, and he's doing it consistently day in and day out," Coach LaFleur said. "And just helping us win a lot of games. He makes everybody around him better and you can see it every time he steps out on that field
LaFleur is the other December charm. His Packers went 5-0 last December, and with only one team left with a winning record on this year's schedule, they have a chance to run the table again.
