Rodgers reached the milestone in 3,652 attempts, topping the record previously held by Johnny Unitas. Rodgers is the 40th quarterback overall to reach the 30,000-yard mark. 

Rodgers, 31, entered Saturday with 1,236 passing yards and 13 touchdowns this season, needing 186 more yards to reach the 30,000 milestone. In his career, Rodgers has completed more than 65% of his passes, for more than 30,000 yards and 241 touchdowns.
