3: Rodgers, Mark Rypien and Norm Van Brocklin are the only quarterbacks in NFL history to throw for 400-plus yards with five-plus touchdown passes and at least one touchdown run.

3: Touchdowns of 20-plus yards by the Packers. They had two in the first six games.

6: Consecutive games in which the Packers have allowed two or fewer sacks. Green Bay allowed five sacks in Week 1 but seven sacks the past six games. Bryan Bulaga still has not allowed a sack.

6: Players with receptions of 20-plus yards, the most for the Packers since Dec. 12, 1983, at Tampa Bay, according to the team.

6: Touchdowns on eight possessions directed by Rodgers. All of those scoring drives were at least 75 yards in length.

8: Players with at least two receptions by the Packers. Those who didn’t have a 20-yard gain? Geronimo Allison, who had third-down conversions on Green Bay’s second and third touchdown drives, and Jamaal Williams, who scored a touchdown.

9: Plays of 20-plus yards by Green Bay. That’s back-to-back season highs. Green Bay had three in Week 1 vs. Chicago, two in Week 2 vs. Minnesota, four in Week 3 vs. Denver, four in Week 4 vs. Philadelphia, four in Week 5 vs. Dallas and six in Week 6 vs. Detroit.

10.23: Yards per pass route by Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Entering the game, his 1.37 yards per route ranked 60th of 89 receptions with at least 12 routes, according to Pro Football Focus.

11: Receptions for 172 yards and three touchdowns by Oakland’s tight ends. Up next is the Chiefs’ Travis Kelce, who is third among tight ends with 38 receptions, the Chargers’ Hunter Henry, who has 18 receptions and two touchdowns in three games, and Carolina’s Greg Olsen, who is 11th among tight ends with 22 receptions.

59: Yards of Valdes-Scantling’s reception to start the second half, the team’s longest play of the season … for a moment.

74: Yards of Valdes-Scantling’s fourth-quarter touchdown, the team’s longest play of the season. The Packers have five plays of more than 45 yards this season. Valdes-Scantling has four of them.

158.3: Passer rating for Rodgers, the highest attainable on the NFL’s convoluted formula. Dating to 1950, that is the 33rd of all-time among quarterbacks with at least 20 attempts in game, though the fourth of this season. Of that group, Rodgers threw for the third-most yards and fourth-most touchdowns.

350: Career touchdown passes in 165 career starts. That’s the most in NFL history, ahead of Dan Marino’s 316 touchdown passes, according to Pro Football Reference.

351: Career touchdown passes by Rodgers, including one vs. Dallas off the bench in 2007. Rodgers reached 350 career touchdown passes in his 172nd career game. That’s the fastest in NFL history, ahead of Drew Brees’ 180 games. Rodgers ranks ninth in NFL history in touchdown passes and has a chance to pass the benched Eli Manning (362) and injured Ben Roethlisberger (363) this season.
