It was an unforgetable Sunday for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers as he was able to throw an interception after almost three years. 

ESPN reported that the quarterback ended his spotless streak at Lambeau Field during the Packers' 24-10 win versus the St. Louis Rams.

In a similar report, NFL.com added that Rodgers was previously able to "go for 1,043 days and 587 attempts without being intercepted at Lambeau Field."

After his first interception, he threw another one towards the end of the first half. "A diving Trumaine Johnson recorded the second turnover while Rodgers attempted to connect with James Jones," added NFL.com.

It was also noted that this is also the first time since 2010 that Rodgers was able to throw multiple interceptions at home.

"It was a lot of fun. Have to start a new one. I figured might as well break the streak with a couple of interceptions today. Yeah, streaks are meant to be broken, so it's fun to put something together like that. But I'm sure someone will come along at some point and put up 600 in row maybe," the quarterback told ESPN.

According to Fox Sports, Rodgers was performing well for the start of the season making 12 touchdown passes without interception. He recorded his 12th touchdown pass during Sunday's game to rookie Ty Montgomery.

But he had other rough moments during the match with him losing a fumble during the third quarter when he got sacked by Robert Quinn.

"He's human sometimes, man, you know what I mean. But it's very rare. It's very rare. So when you get him without his cape on, you better catch it," Packers receiver Jones mentioned in the ESPN report.

The Washington Post observed that it was one of the worst games of Rodgers in years but the Packers still managed to claim victory with its great offense and defense strategy.

"Even if Rodgers is missing his receivers, he gets enough time in the pocket to read the field and make the throws -- only Tyrod Taylor gets more time in the pocket," the same report added.

In addition, Bleacher Report mentioned that the Packers' win was indeed "not pretty" because of the obvious "one-sided" offense during the match.

It added that these concerns add up to the list of injured players of the team including guard T.J. Lang (knee), outside linebacker Nick Perry (shoulder) and nose tackle B.J. Raji (groin), who left the game and were not able to return.
