In 2011, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers established himself as one of the elite passers in NFL history as he posted a 122.5 passer rating, the best single-season mark in NFL history. He set NFL season record with 13 games with 100+ rating and 12 games with 110+ rating.

It was the first time in franchise history that the Packers averaged 250.0 net passing yards in back-to-back seasons. QB Aaron Rodgers finished in the top 10 in nearly every passing category, falling just 78 yards short of his third straight 4,000-yard season despite missing 1½ games due to a concussion. The Packers also posted two 45-point games during the regular season, the first time Green Bay had done so since 1983.
