(24 7 SPORTS) – Nobody thought that Aaron Rodgers was going to go through an entire NFL season being nearly perfect.
But so far in 2020, Rodgers had been about as perfect as a quarterback could be. That was, until Sunday.
Through four games of the season, Rodgers had not thrown an interception. He had thrown 157 pass attempts without throwing one, which was the longest active streak in the NFL until Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Jamel Dean got his chance.
