Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke an NFL record on Sunday. The former MVP had gone 402 consecutive passes without throwing an interception.
Immediately after breaking said record, Rodgers’ streak came to an end. With his Packers down 24-14 against the Chicago Bears midway through the fourth quarter, Rodgers had the offense driving to pull within one score.
That’s when the future Hall of Famer was picked off in the end zone by all-everything Bears safety Eddie Jackson on a pass intended for Jimmy Graham.

That seems to be more on Graham than Rodgers. The ball placement was great. Unfortunately, the tight end couldn’t haul it in.
This also represented Jackson’s sixth interception of the season. The second-year player is quickly becoming one of the best safeties in the game. And it has Chicago on the brink of the NFC North title.
