Aaron Rodgers passed Brett Favre to become the leader of the Green Bay Packers in career touchdown passes.

Rodgers threw his 443rd career touchdown pass with an 11-yard goal to Allen Lazard in the Packers’ first quarter of Saturday’s game with the Cleveland Browns. Lazard caught the pass around the 7-yard line, walked up the field and dove into the right corner of the end zone to give the Packers a 7-6 lead.
