Desean Jackson had a 60 yard TD reception in last nights MNF matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. He also had a 57 yard reception.

Speaking of the Seahawks, it is the fourth-year anniversary of the trade that brought Marshawn Lynch to Seattle.

Carries: 1,118. Rushing yards: 4,858. Rushing touchdowns: 44. Receptions: 116. Receiving touchdowns: 6. Broken tackles: Countless.

Those are Marshawn Lynch's statistical contributions to the Seahawks' gradual and unprecedented success since the Beast Mode running back was acquired in a trade with the Buffalo Bills - on Oct. 5, 2010.

On the anniversary of the bold move that brought Lynch to Seattle, it's worth pondering: Where would the Seahawks be without everything he has delivered?

"He's that important."

Aaron Rodgers sets the NFL record for fewest interceptions at the time of his 200th TD pass.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- You know Aaron Rodgers doesn't throw interceptions, at least not at the rate of most other quarterbacks.

His 12-to-1 touchdown-to-interception count this season is evidence of that.

But here's an better example of how averse the Green Bay Packers quarterback is to throwing the ball to the other team: When he threw his 200th career touchdown pass in last Thursday's win over the Minnesota Vikings, Rodgers had only 53 interceptions -- which was the fewest by any quarterback in NFL history at the time he reached 200 career touchdown passes.

And it's not even close.
