FIRST CAREER WIN At the beginning of the 2008 NFL season, Rodgers began his tenure at the helm of the offense as the starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers met division rival Minnesota to begin the 2008 season in a Monday night matchup at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. In the second half, Rodgers led the Packers on a five-play, 62-yard drive that resulted in his first career touchdown pass as a starter in the NFL. The Packers went on to
beat the Vikings 24–19. Rodgers completed 81 percent of his passes in his first start, throwing the ball for 178 yards with no interceptions. Always mobile and athletic for a QB, he also rushed for 44yards in his first career win.
Watch as Rodgers tosses one touchdown pass and runs for another as the starting QB of the Green Bay Packers, versus the Minnesota Vikings, September 8, 2008.
