We all know Aaron Rodgers is in a class of quarterbacks reserved for the absolute best, but he's closing in on a record that none of his peers had been able to achieve.

Rodgers is about to join the 300-touchdown-passes club. He currently has 97, so barring a season-ending injury it's pretty much a sure bet. He'll be the 10th NFL quarterback to reach that milestone, joining the likes of Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers, among active players.

You can add John Elway, Fran Tarkenton, Dan Marino, Peyton Manning, and Rodgers' predecessor in Green Bay, Brett Favre, to that list.

So what has Rodgers done that those other ten superstars didn't? Throw interceptions.

Rodgers is going to be the first quarterback to ever reach the 300-touchdown-pass club without having more than 100 interceptions.

When Tom Brady hit the mark, he had 115 interceptions, the lowest on that list. Rivers is the next lowest on that list with 146 interceptions at the 300 mark.

Rodgers has 72.

72.

If Rodgers were struck blind, he could probably get those last three touchdowns without passing Brady on the interceptions list.
