Packers demolish records, Redskins

As record after record fell Sunday in the rain at Lambeau Field, the Green Bay Packers dominated the Washington Redskins 38-20 in a Week 2 match-up between teams looking to avoid the dreaded 0-2 start.

The day started with a record crowd of 78,020 packing into Lambeau Field, the most fans to ever see a game at the historic stadium, boosted by the 7,000-seat addition in the south end zone.

From there Aaron Rodgers took over the record setting, tying his single-game record for completions with 34, breaking his single-game career passing record and tying the single-game franchise record with 480 yards passing. He also had four touchdowns and no interceptions and finished with a quarterback rating of 146.0.

“I had no idea,” Rodgers said of the records. “That’s what happens sometimes when you’re in a good rhythm.”

James Jones led the receiving group with 11 catches for 178 yards, both career highs for the seventh-year wide receiver.
