Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers reached 300 career touchdown passes faster than anyone in NFL history on Sunday.

Rodgers completed 33 of 50 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-23 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

But as good as those numbers were, they pale in comparison to what he has done in his career.

With his second touchdown pass of the night Sunday, a one-yard strike on a shovel pass to running back Ty Montgomery, Rodgers tallied the 300th touchdown pass of his career, joining a very exclusive lists that includes names like Dan Marino, Tom Brady and Fran Tarkenton.

However, none of those men accomplished the feat as quickly as Rodgers, who reached 300 touchdown passes in just 144 games. No one has reached 300 touchdown passes faster in NFL history.

Also, no one has reached the 300-passing-touchdown-plateau with fewer interceptions than Rodgers.

Rodgers was not too concerned with the record, though. He was far more concerned with the effort the Packers' opponent gave Sunday.

"It was a tough game," he told reporters after the game. "They're a fantastic team, well-coached, MVP quarterback."
