Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Aaron Rodgers tied a franchise record with
480 passing yards and threw for four touchdowns, leading the Green Bay Packers
to a convincing 38-20 victory over the slumping Washington Redskins at Lambeau
Rodgers made good on 34-of-42 attempts and did not turn the ball over to tie
former teammate Matt Flynn's club mark set in the 2011 regular-season finale.
Green Bay (1-1) amassed 580 total yards as a team in bouncing back from last
week's season-opening 34-28 loss in San Francisco.
A few other Packers enjoyed career days in the rout, with James Jones totaling
178 yards on 11 receptions and James Starks churning out 132 rushing yards and
a touchdown on 20 attempts. Randall Cobb added 128 yards and a touchdown on
nine catches, while Jordy Nelson hauled in two of Rodgers' scoring strikes.
Robert Griffin III put up three touchdown passes for Washington (0-2), though
each came after the Redskins were faced with a 31-0 deficit midway through the
third quarter. The reigning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year finished with 320
yards on a 26-of-40 completion rate and was intercepted once.
Pierre Garcon had 143 yards and a touchdown on eight grabs in the loss, which
gave the Redskins their first 0-2 start since 2006, while Alfred Morris rushed
for 107 yards on 13 carries.
