Aaron Rodgers now stands alone in Packers history with the most touchdown passes.  

He passed Brett Favre on the all-time franchise list Saturday after tossing an 11-yard touchdown to Allen Lazard in the first quarter against the Cleveland Browns on Christmas Day at Lambeau Field. 

The touchdown was Rodgers' 443rd of his 17-year career (14 as the starter), breaking a tie with Favre. 

Here's the record-breaking moment:

Favre, who ended his career with 508 total touchdowns after his stints in New York and Minnesota, came on the video board to congratulate Rodgers.

Favre told his former teammate he had one request for him.

"Go get us another Super Bowl," Favre said.

Here's more reactions across Twitter to the historic touchdown, including from some former teammates.

Andrew Brandt, the Packers' former vice president of player finance and general counsel at the time Green Bay selected Rodgers in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft, used the moment to share a favorite photo of his when the future Hall of Famer put pen to paper as a rookie.

Here’s a nod to the general manager at the time, Ted Thompson, for making that pick.

She celebrated the moment in emojis. 

Around the same time Rodgers was setting the record, Giannis Antetokounmpo was leading the Milwaukee Bucks to a 117-113 comeback win over the Boston Celtics at Fiserv Forum. You could say it was a merry Christmas for Wisconsin sports fans.

Rodgers was part of another record on Saturday. His 9-yard touchdown to Davante Adams with 10:47 left in the second quarter was the duo's 66th TD. That mark passed the 65 touchdowns Rodgers had with Jordy Nelson.

Rodgers and Adams connected again with 12 seconds left in the second quarter to add to their franchise record. The touchdown also increased the Packers' lead to 21-12.
