Aaron Rodgers throws for career-high 480 yards plus four TDs

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed more than 80 percent of his pass attempts (34-of-42) for a career-high 480 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in today's blowout win over the Redskins.

Believe it or not, it was only the third 400-yard game in the regular season of his career although it was his 12th game with at least four touchdown passes. He also had one 400-yard game (423) in the playoffs that was his previous career high.

After going reception-less last week, James Jones led the Packers with 11 receptions for 178 yards. Meanwhile, Randall Cobb also went over 100 yards with 128 yards and a touchdown on nine receptions. Jordy Nelson (two) and Jermichael Finley (one) caught Rodgers' other three TD passes to give the Packers four pass-catchers with double-digit fantasy points.

In two games this season, Rodgers has 813 passing yards, seven touchdowns and one interception. Rodgers and the Packers face the Bengals in Week 3.

After allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to QBs last week and a ton of points to Rodgers today, the Redskins will host the Lions next week so you should expect a huge game from Matthew Stafford.
