Aaron Rodgers lit the vaunted Kansas City Chiefs defense on fire on Monday Night Football with five TD passes to keep the Green Bay Packers undefeated.
In yet another flawless night for the reigning NFL MVP, Aaron Rodgers carved the Chiefs defense like chicken and threw three TD passes in the first half – one to Ty Montgomery, one to Randall Cobb and this one in the final minute of the first half to James Jones.
Cobb would haul in two more TD passes from Rodgers in the second half to give him 3 TD catches on the day, with the back-breaker coming early in the 4th quarter on this grab from Rodgers.
As for Kansas City, RB Jamaal Charles was bottled up, recording just 49 rushing yards on a handful of carries. QB Alex Smith was inconsistent, completing less than 58% of his passes.
But it would’ve taken a Herculean effort from Charles and Smith to keep pace with Rodgers, who recorded his 4th career 5 TD performance – beating the franchise mark set by Packers legend Brett Favre and tying the 10 TD-0 INT mark through three games set by Peyton Manning in 2013.
With the win the Packers move to 3-0 on the season and will head to San Francisco to face the 49ers.
The Chiefs fall to 1-2 on the season, and will head to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals next week.
