Aaron Rodgers became the second-fastest player to reach 200 touchdown passes in his career on Thursday night when he hit Davante Adams with an 11-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter that put the Packers ahead 28-0.

Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams celebrate after connecting on a second quarter touchdown reception.

That gave Rodgers 200 touchdown passes in his 99th game. Only Miami's Dan Marino did it faster, in 89 games.

"(Rodgers) is at the point in his career now it seems like every week or every other week he's breaking a record," coach Mike McCarthy said. "He's just a special player."

Rodgers said he didn't get the ball as a keepsake after the play because it went to Adams, who caught his first NFL touchdown on the play. Rodgers said he also didn't get the ball after his 100th touchdown because former receiver James Jones threw it in the stands in a game at Atlanta after the catch.

"I'm not going to take (Adams') ball," Rodgers said. "Hopefully I can get to 300 and throw it to a guy who's caught a touchdown before so I can keep that one."​
