*This article has since been updated to reflect Aaron Rodgers' record against each NFL team as of Jan. 22, 2022.
At the close of the 2020 NFL regular season, Aaron Rodgers topped the league in touchdown passes (48), completion percentage (70.7%), and quarterback rating (121.5).
The reigning, three-time MVP not only put together an exceptional season — his 16th of his NFL career — but his 13-3 Green Bay Packers were a popular choice to win Super Bowl LV.
Rodgers has earned just one Super Bowl title, but the nine-time Pro Bowler’s name is often tossed into the "greatest of all time" discussion.
Rodgers has a 133-64-1 record in the regular season and is 12-9 in postseason play. He has also led the league in passer rating three times (2011, 2012, 2020) and set the single-season record for passer rating (122.5) in 2011.
As Rodgers recently stated in an interview, “The greatest of all time is one person. But now, because there’s way too many G.O.A.T.s, you have to break it into specific categories. … When it comes to those … I’m probably in that conversation.”
Let's examine just how great Rodgers' career has been, as we break down his record against every NFL team (regular season and postseason included).
No team has suffered more at the hands of Rodgers than the Bears. The Packers' NFC North rival has won just five games against Rodgers and lost 24 times, including once in the postseason.
Rodgers has also enjoyed some of his finest performances against Chicago. On Christmas Day in 2011 (the year of his first MVP win), Rodgers tallied five touchdown passes, no interceptions, and had a 142.7 passer rating in a 35-21 home victory against the Bears.

In 2014, the season Rodgers won his second MVP, he completed nearly 80% of his passes and recorded four scores in a Week 4 win at Chicago. In his second matchup with the Bears that season, Rodgers racked up six touchdown passes in the first half to lift Green Bay to a 42-0 lead at halftime.
In Rodgers' first of two meetings with Peyton Manning, the Packers superstar beat the two-time Super Bowl winner in a 34-14 win against Indy in 2008. Manning repaid Rodgers with a 29-10 defeat as a member of the Broncos in 2015.
Rodgers has since failed to earn a win against Indianapolis. In his last three games, Rodgers has lost by less than a touchdown each time.
The Raiders are one of three franchises that have never beaten Rodgers. The Cleveland Browns (0-3) and New York Jets (0-3) are also winless against him.
Last season, Rodgers achieved one of his greatest games against the Raiders in a Week 7 contest. For the first time in his career, he earned a perfect passer rating, as he threw for 429 yards, five touchdowns, and rushed for another score.
The NFC North rival that has caused Rodgers the most trouble is Minnesota. The Vikings own a 10-16-1 record against Rodgers.
Rodgers went head to head with his Packers predecessor, Brett Favre, four times while Favre played in Minnesota. Rodgers lost both matchups in 2009 and won both the following season.
In Week 3 of the 2020 season, Rodgers improved his record to 3-2 against Drew Brees and the Saints. He had previously been winless against the Saints in the Superdome but edged past Brees and company in a 37-30 triumph in New Orleans on Sept. 27.
In 2021 — following an offseason in which Rodgers feuded with the Packers front office and nearly opted to sit out the upcoming campaign — he opened the season with a lopsided, 38-3, loss to New Orleans, led by new starting quarterback Jameis Winston.
Rodgers has faced Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers twice in the regular season, which resulted in a 37-36 win for Pittsburgh in 2009 and a 27-17 victory for Green Bay in 2021.
The two historic franchises met again in Super Bowl XLV, where Rodgers led Green Bay to a 31-25 win. He passed for 304 yards and three scores to earn Super Bowl MVP.

During the Packers' 2010 Super Bowl campaign, Rodgers became the third player in NFL history to pass for more than 1,000 yards in a single postseason.
A Northern California native and longtime 49ers fan, Rodgers hoped to one day play for San Francisco but was passed over for Alex Smith as San Francisco's No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft.
Rodgers has had the chance to exact revenge on San Francisco throughout his career, but he has never gotten the job done in the playoffs.
Rodgers is 6-3 against San Francisco in the regular season, which includes a 1-1 record against Smith, but is 0-4 in the postseason.
The Packers star's most recent loss occurred in the 2022 NFC Divisional Round, where the Niners downed Green Bay, 13-10.
Rodgers and 2018 NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes have never confronted each other on the football field.
Their first meeting may finally occur if Green Bay and the Kansas City Chiefs both reach the Super Bowl — which is likely to happen, according to the Super Bowl LV odds.

Rodgers has played Kansas City three times. He defeated Chiefs backup Matt Moore last season and took down Alex Smith's Chiefs in 2015.
The Packers QB's only loss against Kansas City occurred in 2011, against Kyle Orton.
In Week 6, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers handed Rodgers and Green Bay their first of only three losses in 2020.
Before that meeting, Rodgers owned one win and one loss against Brady with his former team, the New England Patriots.
His first win against the six-time Super Bowl champion came in 2014, a 26-21 decision.
Brady and Rodgers met again in the NFC Championship Game at Lambeau Field on Jan. 24. The Packer QB went 33-of-48 for 346 yards and three touchdowns, and threw one interception in a 31-26 loss.
Rodgers is now 1-3 overall against Brady.
