Jordy Nelson and Aaron Rodgers are doing record-setting work vs. Vikings

BY Dan Graf • December 24, 2016

The Green Bay Packers have had a lot of great quarterbacks and a lot of great receivers, but no pair has connected for more touchdown passes than Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson.

The duo hooked up on scoring plays in both the first and second quarter Saturday, topping the franchise record set by Brett Favre and Antonio Freeman of 57 TD passes.

Rodgers and Nelson got No. 58 in the first quarter, from 21 yards out.

Nelson had seven catches for 145 yards by halftime and leads the NFL with 14 touchdown catches after missing all of last season with a torn ACL.

Rodgers finished the half 19-for-22 for 268 yards, three touchdowns and one 6-yard rushing touchdown just before halftime. The Packers ended up winning their fifth straight game, 38-25.
