Aaron Rodgers passes for five touchdowns, runs for another in rout of Raiders
Aaron Rodgers had his best game by far under new Packers coach Matt LaFleur, throwing for 429 yards and five touchdowns and running for another as Green Bay beat the Oakland Raiders 42-24 on Sunday.
Rodgers completed 25 of 31 passes to eight different targets and finished with the first perfect passer rating of his career, leading LaFleur’s offense to a season high in points.
Even with top target Davante Adams sidelined for the third straight game with turf toe, Rodgers threw for his most touchdowns in a game since Sept. 28, 2015, against the Chiefs.
Derek Carr finished 22-for-28 for 293 yards, two touchdowns and two costly turnovers for the Raiders (3-3), who lost their eighth straight against Green Bay (6-1), dating back to 1990. Most of Carr’s completions were to tight ends, with Darren Waller hauling in 8 catches for 126 yards and two touchdowns.
Jacoby Brissett threw a career-high four touchdown passes and Darius Leonard had a late interception in the Colts’ 30-23 victory over the Texans.
Raiders rookie Josh Jacobs ran for a 42-yard gain on the opening drive. He finished with 124 yards on 21 carries and has 554 rushing yards this season.
