Aaron Rodgers Passed Johnny Unitas, Warren Moon On Career Touchdown List Today

Aaron Rodgers does the "Lambeau Leap" after a touchdown.

Aaron Rodgers is putting together a ridiculous day for the Packers vs. the Vikings, and is climbing the NFL's list for career passing touchdowns.

The Packers lead Minnesota 28-13 at the half behind four total touchdowns for the MVP candidate quarterback. Three of those came through the air, giving Rodgers 292 career touchdown passes right now. Those three throws leap Rodgers behind legends Johnny Unitas and Warren Moon on the all-time passing touchdowns list.

Next on the list is another great active quarterback: Steelers' signal caller Ben Roethlisberger, who has 298 entering this weekend. John Elway is the next retired quarterback on the list, with 300 career touchdown passes. Today, Rodgers is 19-for-22 for 268 passing yards and three scores, and added a touchdown run just before halftime to extend the Green Bay lead.

At the beginning of the year, many questioned whether Rodgers was already past his prime. Instead, he is playing his way back into the MVP conversation, and his declaration a few weeks ago that the Packers would win out is looking like a wise prophecy.
