Aaron Rodgers passed Brett Favre on Saturday as the historic leader of Green Bay on touchdown passes, and the Packers intercepted four shipments from Baker Mayfield to prevail 24-22 in a Christmas game against the Cleveland Browns.
Rodgers completed 24 of 34 passes for 202 yards, with three touchdowns, to increase his total to 445. Favre threw 508 touchdown passes during his Hall of Fame career, including 442 with Green Bay.
However, it was the Green Bay defense that secured this victory, by capturing Mayfield five times and intercepting all four shipments, something that had not happened to him in his career.
All three of the Packers’ touchdowns came after interceptions of Mayfield. Green Bay (12-3) pocketed the win when Rasul Douglas intercepted his second pass of the day, 43 seconds from the end.
Mayfield completed 21 of 36 passes for 222 yards, with two touchdowns and all four intercepted, on his return from the COVID-19 list. Cleveland (7-8) hadn’t had its starting quarterback in Monday’s game, a 16-14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.
