AARON RODGERS finally completed a touchdown pass to a first-round draft pick on Sunday.
The 38-year-old Green Bay Packers quarterback celebrated his 501st and 502nd touchdown receptions.
Rodgers threw two in a 27-22 loss to the New York Giants in London.
And the second of those to Marcedes Lewis was an unfortunate piece of history.
Lewis is the only first-round draft pick to catch a Rodgers touchdown pass.
The tight end was the 28th pick in the 2006 NFL draft.
He spent 11 years with the Jacksonville Jaguars before joining the Packers in 2018.
Quarterback Rodgers has played his entire career without a first-round pick.
Green Bay has had some elite wide receivers over the years, from Greg Jennings to Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams.
But none of them were drafted in the first round.
Green Bay lost Sunday after giving up a 17-3 lead, falling to 3-2 in the season.
Rodgers was unhappy with defenseman Jaire Alexander’s conversation about the team’s performance.
Alexander said he’s not worried about the team’s defense but will if they lose to the New York Jets next week.
Rodgers said: “Honestly, I don’t like this whole conversation about losing next week.
“I firmly believe in the power of words and of manifestation.
“We have to check that for ourselves. Talking about it isn’t a win for football.
“It was talked about in the dressing room and I don’t like that.
“He’s my type, but we don’t have to talk like that.”
