Aaron Rodgers’ incredible streak without interception at home was broken against the Rams
Aaron Rodgers is probably the best quarterback in the NFL, no matter what day he’s playing on, whether he’s playing in, or stadium that he’s occupying. However, there’s also no denying that he’s been nearly infallible at the hallowed home of the Green Bay Packers, Lambeau Field.
In fact, coming into their Week 5 matchup with the St. Louis Rams, he hadn’t thrown an interception in Lambeau since December 2012.
That incredible streak was broken on Sunday against the Rams.
Late in the first quarter, Rodgers dropped back and tried to throw a pass to the outside, but it was tipped at the line. Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis came sprinting in and dove under the tipped pass to make the streak-breaking interception:
Even if the streak is now over, going almost three years without throwing a pick at home exemplifies an absolutely ridiculous level of performance and consistency. Of course, this is Aaron Rodgers we’re talking about, so that’s to be expected.
Because it’s the Packers at Lambeau, Rodgers’ first interception at Lambeau in 34 months didn’t even wind up hurting Green Bay. The Packers picked off Nick Foles on the ensuing drive to get possession back. So really, it’s like the streak was never broken at all.
